Can I have racing thoughts because of other conditions than OCD? I often have thoughts about harming those who made me feel uncomfortable at some point but have no clue what is the reason for those thoughts.

Online tests can be helpful but do not trust them entirely. A professional has a proven approach to asking you the questions they need for your specific case.
