Hypochondriasis is a condition where you misinterpret body sensations, and assume that you have a serious illness. The doctor may have missed something. It is possible to believe that the anxiety you are experiencing will lead to something more serious, such as a heart attack or dying in your sleep.
2013, The 5th edition of the Diagnostic andStatistical Manual 5th Edition changed the name to hypochondriasis. Somatic is body. It’s a condition where you are too focused on your body and have an illness. This problem is known by people who are suffering from a lot of distress.
Use this self-talk script when you feel triggered by a body sensation.
My doctor has checked me out and my new symptoms do not necessarily mean that I have a medical condition. This is what I believe. Anxiety leads me to believe that I have something. I’m not a more qualified medical professional than those who have treated many sick patients. I don’t know how sick people look, but I do know what I look like. I don’t have any comparisons to help me understand what the illness that I am concerned about actually looks like. I won’t be able to see the full picture from the internet of the illness that you are concerned about.
