Might you be asking, what to do about being "hypochondriac"? People in this situation need certain things.
One is a caring family physician who will follow you regularly, and do diagnostic tests judiciously. Also you need a psychiatrist, preferably one who also does psychotherapy -- who can help you with this worrying about your health. Training in mind/body skills like meditation can help too.
