Health Tip: Living with Hypochondria

(HealthDay News) -- Hypochondria is a preoccupation with physical health. People with the condition obsess on physical symptoms and take them as signs of serious illness, despite lack of medical evidence.

People with the condition do not purposely create these symptoms, says MedlinePlus. For those living with hypochondria, talk therapy can be helpful.

Recognizing what make symptoms flare, and developing coping mechanisms, are key to treatment.
