Hello,
In my family two people suffered from hypochondria and I am very much worried and obsessed as them. I went many times at the hospital because of a strange sensation in my throat as my heart rate keeps rising. After various examinations a doctor came to the conclusion that I had a raised level of enzyme in my blood due to a coronary problem. I went again to a cardiologist but he saw nothing my heart is perfect but I keep worrying about this.

Hello
Your behaviour is learnt from your family so you are probably anxious and get over stressed about health issues. Consider asking for a referal to a counsellor or psychologist to help you learn to accept how things are. Good luck

Hey pal do try to see a psychiatrist, this is all in your head. The fact that this illness (hypochondria) has touched some members of your family you make it an obsession. You better to a treatment else you will invest all your money in imaginary illness and this is useless.
