Racing thoughts are typically indicative of a mental health problem, especially if they are unrelenting. They may be a symptom of a mood or anxiety disorder. Clearly your symptoms are making it difficult to function normally.

As you noted, you can no longer control these “never ending” racing thoughts. Therefore professional intervention is necessary. It’s important to consult a mental health professional and report what you’re experiencing. Treatment can assist you in stabilizing your mood. I hope you will consider my recommendation. Please take care.
