Nobody likes to fall ill, but Hypochondriacs fear it all day long such that they experience physiological discomfort such as hyperventilation, nausea, trembling, panic attacks dindriac even more, as they resemble symptoms of real illnesses such as heart disease. It then becomes a vicious cycle.
Hypochondriasis often coexist with Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder or OCD. This makes the sufferer worry a lot about his or her own health, as well as loved ones. They may also pop many Vitamin C tablets a day or eat foods that they deem healthy for fear of deadly illnesses.
