Ive been having a number of health issues (symptoms) and lots o people including doctors say that i exacerbate symptoms due to anxiety and a fear of illness/death (hypocondria).

Generally i seem to distrust them when they say this, but then again that is the main mark for hypocondria.

Anyway I was wondering how people around here view things. To what extent do hypocondria and anxiety/depression cause some make-believe or exacerbated symptoms.

I do assume some cases of hypocondria exist in reality and its not just lazy doctors even tough I'm sure that is very common too.

  • I have a very similar problem and I can't say there's a way to stop it. It might be that you have a low pain tolerance. Do whatever you can to distract yourself when you think you're are feeling ill. Sorry I can't give any better advice.
