So while you are driving your vision changes and things appear to be shifted or do they appear to become hazy and out of focus? Do you have a racing heartbeat when this happens? And you say you can control it to a point...how do you do that?
when im driving if there are tall trees blocking my view of large landmarks like mountains or things like that I lose my bearings if i go around a curve. I don't experience any of those other symptoms. As far as being able to control it, I have found certain routs that will change my perception. It's like my brain doesn't understand diagonal lines. It is incredibly difficult to explain without visual aides.
things become shifted. its like everything appears shifted 90 degrees to the left.
This doesn't sound like OCD to me or an anxiety order in general either. It seems like a brain/eye communication issue...processing issue. Have you talked to your regular doctor about this?
I haven't, it hasn't really affected me in a negative way. If I am familiar with the area I can get by pretty easily. The thing that makes it seem possibly akin to OCD is the method in which I fix it. There is a road I can take to fix it, but its only fixed if im not looking up, if I see the curve then it doesn't work. I just want to know what it is, so I know if it will ultimately have any negative impact on me in the future.
I obviously cannot diagnose you but it still does not seem like OCD to me. I think you should discuss this first with your general practitioner who can then refer you to the appropriate people for testing.
