I'm wondering if anyone else feels this. I talked to my therapist about this yesterday and she thinks its a symptom of MS. I'm not convinced.
 
I constantly loop thoughts. Like a broken record. It will be the same thought over and over. It's usually a negative thought or a thought that is not true and its almost like my brain is trying to trick me. My therapist said that usually people have a "mental brake" that they can push and it will shut their thoughts off. She is wondering if I'm having a "hot spot" in my brain causing me to not be able to turn thoughts off. The same thought has been looping for about 10 days nowand I am getting panicky and paranoid. Like there is a big ball of fire in my chest that I cant get rid of. Anyone else experience this ever?

HA! Funny you should mention that! I just started researching OCD and pretty much self diagnosed it as that, too. Im wondering though, if there is a corrolation between MS and OCD seeing how OCD has to do with myelin being too thin....
