From my experience OCD can attach itself to almost anything and can convince us of almost anything including having the symptoms of any condition or disease especially if you are powering it up by continually reading articles online. In my humble opinion I would suggest stop researching it online and going to various forums etc. and when the thoughts come to your mind about ADHD answer back sarcastically - maybe I have it, maybe I don't and try to go on with your life, even though the anxiety and thoughts are still there. It sounds like there is a pattern of these thoughts as you said about that you had other themes related to other conditions. OCD will continue giving you these thoughts with other conditions unless you start disregarding the thoughts. It seems like the action for any type of OCD is the same no matter what the thoughts are at the time.
I wish you the best in your recovery.
