If you're a hypochondriac, can anxiety make you feel real symptoms of diseases than then go away once you see a doctor?

Specializes in Clinical Psychology

Have you yet tried any form of psychotherapy? Typically, the optimal combination of things to treat emotional issues such as anxiety or depression is medication (which, on your best day, is supposed to take the edge off symptoms) but the real gruntwork takes place in psychotherapist's consulting room.
