Harmless Habit or Trichotillomania?

So I was diagnosed with severe OCD at age 11. I am on medication and I thought I had it under control. 


I have had a hair twirling habit since i was younger and I spent most of my life with short hair though recently I've been growing it out. Lately the twirling has turned more into hair pulling. I twirl my hair as hard as I can until it falls out of my head. Right now my scalp actually hurts from pulling so much hair out. Is this trichotillomania? I am trying to stop but its really hard.
