Our expert says:
There is no "battage of tests" needed to make ANY psychiatric diagnosis, only a careful and skillful assessment by taking with you and reviewing your symptoms and problems. Online tests at best suggest a possibility, and its reasonable to see a shrink for a proper assessment, just as if you found an online test suggested possible Diabetes, you'd see a GP for some basic tests to check this.
Its only sensible to be alert to the possibility of any illness, and no decent doc would consider you hypchondriac for asking about this. A hypochondriac reads the Home Doctor book, and decides he suffers from everything in it, including the Preface and the Index.
