A: You have listed some very serious symptoms here, and I am glad it seems that you have gone for treatment. It is hard to say what the accurate diagnosis is without a complete assessment, but there could be several possibilities given the information you included here.
It never hurts to get a second opinion if you are not convinced your diagnosis is accurate, and an accurate diagnosis is crucial in terms of getting the appropriate treatment. Given the severity of some of the symptoms you describe, I would suggest that you seek out a very thorough evaluation from a psychologist and psychiatrist, which includes psychological testing. Your health insurance company should be able to help you find covered providers. If you do not have health insurance, please contact your local community mental health center for help.
All the best,
Dr. Holly Counts
