Hypochondria is : Anxiety over your health that resists reassurance and usually involves misperception of body symptoms and sensations. Talk to a mental health professional to explore the underlying cause and learn skills for managing the excessive anxiety. Relaxation training, perhaps with the aid of biofeedback (www.Bcia.Org or www.Aapb.Org), and cognitive behavioral therapy are very effective.
