Most people worry about their health from time to time. But for some people, this worry never goes away and becomes a real problem.
Health Anxiety (Hypochondria) means obsessive worrying about health, usually to the point where it causes great distress and affects a persons ability to function properly.
Some people with Health Anxiety have unexplained physical symptoms, such as chest pain or headaches, which they assume are a sign of serious disease. Health anxiety typically reduces temporarily after medical reassurance but returns again repeatedly despite a doctor’s reassurance.
Other people may just be permanently anxious about their future health, worrying about things like ‘What if I get cancer or heart disease?’
