Do you sometimes feel that there is something wrong with you. You do not feel comfortable and are worried some disease is causing you trouble. However in real there is no such disease in your body. That condition is known as ‘Hypochondriasis’. In this condition we experience that we are going through some physical illness but in real there are no symptoms of so called disease.
In order to control this, we need to understand the concept of Hypochondria. It is a belief we make up in our mind regarding some disease or illness. It does not mean it is happening in real but our conviction is so strong towards it that we react like a sick or an ill person. Disease or issue maybe like depression, fever, stress, cough, cancer, aids, and many more.
This state makes us to believe the condition so firmly that we just want to see something positive towards presence of disease in the body. A person may even conduct several medical tests just to prove the disease is present in the body. When reports fail to support the presence the patient is not convinced by it and will go somewhere else.
This is what hypochondriasis makes a person to suffer. They always live in fear and stress. They stay surrounded by negative thoughts which harm their mental health.
