Fear of illness is normal and helps us take care of our health. However, when it becomes excessive to the extent that whenever something hurts us, we suspect the worst, a serious disorder occurs. If you are one of those people who always suspect that they are ill and know all the symptoms of incurable diseases by heart, it is likely that you are really sick, but from - hypochondria.
Hypochondria intensified at the time of the corona. The corona virus pandemic has caused a stir around the world, the number of infected and dead is growing day by day, so it is not easy at the moment. How to stay healthy at the time of the corona is one of the main issues in 2020 - the goal is not to cough, not to sneeze and not to get a fever. We read every day, everything related to the corona virus. New symptoms, statistics, finding a vaccine ... It all came down to the level of information, and then the slogan is "I don't want it" and then panic squeezes my chest, it seems that my throat is scratching, that I am one of the infected.
Behind hypochondria often lies the need for a person to attract attention or to find a valve for the bad feelings we have towards ourselves or others. For example, you have emotional problems that you do not dare to talk to your partner about, so instead of "darling, we have a problem", you will say "my heart is constricting, I'm dying".
Not all hypochondria behave the same. Some run to the doctor as soon as they feel the first symptoms of a "serious illness", asking for all possible analyzes to be done. Others are not responsible for their health at all. Fearing what the doctor might diagnose, they avoid any examination. They think that the disease occurs when the doctor finds it and they are known for the sentence "I will not go, who knows what they will find for me". Whichever group they belong to, hypochondriacs must seek professional help from a psychologist or psychiatrist.
In addition to harming their own mental and physical health, hypochondria unknowingly harm people in the environment. As a rule, the family initially takes the complaints of one hypochondrium seriously. It is often called Ambulance and reacts violently to his every cry for help. When they see that their loved ones are imagining everything, family members resort to day and night conversations and persuasions. However, you can't just convince a hypochondriac that just dying of a heart is just a figment of his imagination.
General practitioners also have problems with hypochondriac patients. In the world, such patients are entered in the health card as hypochondria. That way, the doctor does not waste time doing all possible analyzes.
