What is obsessive-compulsive disorder?

A mental illness in which a patient has uncontrollable, recurring thoughts, ideas or sensations (Obsessions) that make them feel driven to do something repeatedly such as cleaning or washing their hands (compulsions). Although the cause of OCD is not fully known, experts believe that neurochemical abnormalities play a part in the disease.
