I too no longer look up things or symptoms on the net I am already OCD with cleaning and routine so I dont need that added
I make self turn to other things like reading going for a short breathe of air or doing a bit of baking anything but looking and seeking ...........and sometimes finding a couple of the many many symptoms of what I thought I had :convincing self I do or did have
Please know many do this so it is not like you are the only one
Keep us posted on how you are doing with attempting to change pattern of thoughts and internet searching
Have you tried CBT??
