Not every single symtom must apply in order for you to get the diagnosis, I don’t think. I think it’s more of whether or not you fit a cluster of symptoms and/or traits, and whether or not or how much these symptoms disrupt your life.

If you’re concerned, you should definitely bring it up with your psychiatrist the next visit.

In the meantime, continue to educate yourself by reading as much as you can about the topic, here on the forums, also as many books as you can find and read. Plus, there’s a really neat film that they talk about here. ;-)

Did your doctor prescribe medication? If so, did you take it? What was the effect? Did it help? That in and of itself can often be a reassurance, from what I’ve read.

Oh, and I’m not an expert, btw. ha ha! Just another person seeking answers.
