It's quite common and not something you should worry too much about. When people say OCD "thought" they can mean a thought with words, mental image, urge, intrusive feeling... An OCD spike is usually three parts, a trigger which is noticed in your physical or mental world, the obsession the thought triggers (the theme) and finally the negative feeling it activates (anxiety, guilt, shame, depression, anger...). When an OCD spike occurs those three activate at almost the same time, which coupled with sneaky mental compulsions can make it really hard to define the thoughts but that's not even required nor important. That's one of the reasons why working with a therapist on your OCD can make your life much easier.

The thoughts for me are too fast to track. Pinpointing one is almost impossible in my mental state rn..
