You constantly worry about having a serious medical condition or believe that your symptoms point towards a serious disease, even though your doctor has assured you that it is nothing to worry about.
You may have medical anxiety, which is also called health anxiety or illness anxiety.
A person with medical anxiety experiences an irrational or obsessive worry about being seriously ill, to the extent that he imagines the presence of physical symptoms of the illness. You may also misinterpret minor symptoms or normal bodily sensations as signs of serious illness, and the reassurance of medical professionals doesn’t help them. This continuous worry causes distress that becomes disabling, affecting your daily life, work, and personal relationships.
