It's Complicated

Find therapists that can help with Illness anxiety disorder (IAD) or hypochondria

Illness anxiety disorder (IAD), formerly known as hypochondria or hypochondriasis, is a mental health condition characterized by persistent and excessive worry about having a serious illness, despite little or no evidence of an actual illness. Individuals with IAD may constantly monitor their bodies for signs of illness, seek reassurance from medical professionals or loved ones, and avoid certain situations or activities due to fear of illness.
