Hypochondria or hypochondriasis, also known as health anxiety, is a type of anxiety disorder. Hypochondriacs have an unreasonable fear of harm or sickness, which others may dismiss. They may, for instance, visit the doctor frequently or believe they have dangerous undetected ailments.
Understandably, you wish to prevent becoming sick or hurt. Most people avoid those situations by cleaning their hands, taking supplements, or avoiding being in the presence of sick people. Those who suffer from health anxiety or hypochondriasis, on the other hand, are worried about their current or future health to the extent that their daily lives are disrupted.
In the 5th edition of The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual (DSM-5), hypochondriasis is no more a diagnosable illness, however, the majority of cases that were originally identified as hypochondria are now categorized as an illness anxiety disorder (IAD) or somatic symptom disorder (SSD). Both of these disorders are classified as somatic symptoms and related disorders in the DSM-5, although only persons with somatic symptom disorder would experience symptoms psychosomatically from their worry.
If someone has illness anxiety or somatic symptom disorder, they may be concerned that their chronic health condition is deteriorating or developing complications. Others who are fit and healthy may assume they have a disease or condition that necessitates medical treatment.
Those with severe health anxiety who are unable to function normally may benefit from seeking help from a professional counselor or therapist.
