Hypochondria Support Group

Hypochondria refers to excessive worry about having a serious illness. Hypochondria is often characterized by fears that minor bodily symptoms may indicate a serious illness, constant self-examination and self-diagnosis, and a preoccupation with one's body. Many individuals with hypochondriasis express doubt and disbelief in the doctors' diagnosis.

    Knowing when your a hypochondriac

    We know when we tell our bodies to do something, it's amazing what our brains can do for us. Anyone struggling today I pray you find comfort... Stop looking up things too, that helped me tremendously! I tell myself I am a happy healthy 22 year old woman when I start thinking about stuff too much.

    Hi, Any Suggestions?

    Hi everyone, I'm new to this group, but I'm hoping talking here can help me through it. I have yet to see a doctor about it (I will at my next appointment in 3 weeks), but I have accepted the fact that I am infact a hypochondriac. I am an 18 (will be 19 on Feb. 12th) year old femlale who has been extremely healthy all her life. However, last August (2016), I woke up with an extreme panic attack...

    It all started when...

    I've always had hypochondria.. when I was in second grade I watched a boy on my bus have a seizure. He was completely fine after, it was from the intense Florida heat and a hot bus. But I remember being scared to eat after that because I thought I would choke and die. Hypochondria went away for the most part in middle school/high school. As an adult I have had a few random episodes. A few months...

    New on here, fear of cancer

    Been dealing with hypochondria for a few years. Started after having a skin exam a few years ago and having 2 moles removed. One came back as "pre-cancer" (which I know doesn't mean it would've ever turned and they shouldn't be allowed to say the "C-word" unless that's what it is) but it still freaked me out! So since then been so nervous about all of my moles and that I'll get Melanoma. Now, my...

    Worst fear of death.....

    I am so terrified of dying. I think that is the root of all of this. I think it started with when I was a child. My mother is an atheist and had no problem telling us what that was and what she believed happened when we died. I don't think she was trying to scare me or hurt me, but she absolutely did. Now every bump, bruise, heart palpitation, ache or pain, I am convinced is something terminal. A...

    I need help!

    Hi,I suffer from hypochondria and anxiety. I am 58 years old and have had OCD since I was a teenager. I dealt very well with that and was a very happy person. Almost 2 years ago I fell and broke my shoulder in 3 places. I didn't even miss work or go to the Dr. for 10 days, thinking it was hurt but not broken. That is just the kind of person 3used to be. I never worried about my health and was not...

    So there are other people who think this way...

    I'm pretty sure I need professional help. My anxiety, which is generalized throughout every aspect of my life, but in the past year or so has really centered on health issues, is truly getting out of control. I have always been a very anxious person and when anything out of the ordinary happens, I assume the worst. It's been manageable for the most part until I had my first child 15 months...

    Im new here. Looking for a support group or friend I can talk to that understands hypochondria. I feel very alone. My friends and family don't understand and seem annoyed with me. I hear "you're fine, just stop worrying" from everyone and it doesn't help.
