I generally have problems with OCD (door checking, hand-washing, etc.) but have also always been ultra health-conscious to the point of hypochondria. My latest thing is checking my lymph nodes. Despite assurances from recent doctor visits, I still have intense fear that I will find one. I've been able to discipline myself by only "allowing" myself to check every two hours. It's a health anxiety, but the main thing I feel is the compulsion to keep checking, as if maybe I missed something before. The problem is that unlike the door-checking, if I'm at the office I can't go home to check the door, whereas my neck is right there and it's much more tempting. I wonder if this is pure health anxiety or if it's mainly OCD because of the neck checking, and the fact that I seem to be focused in on glands and other health concerns don't bother me as much.
