Flashback or hypoch?: Usually hypochondria is not based from scary and negative feelings after an experience such as the one you experienced. Your symptoms appear more susceptible to behavioral or psychopharmacological intervention. Hypochondriacs are usually persons that fear and feels certain symptoms rather longer and they tend to consult with different professionals for a long time and compulsively.
