I recently heard this term used to describe what you are talking about: "Tourretic OCD", ie, referring to compulsions done until that "click" feeling happens, and *not* because of a belief that you would be warding off something bad (the more "typcial" idea we think of as OCD).

I think I have a mild case of this. It waxes and wanes, I think, which is one of the characteristics of Tourrette's Syndrome, isn't it? Mostly, I'm not a "checker" but every once in a while I get the doubting thing and have to check something. Mostly, the symptom I think might be Tourretic OCD is my awful habit of skin picking. The only problem is I never really achieve that "click" feeling. So maybe the picking isn't this Tourettic OCD.
