    Hypercondriac is a situation in which a person is preoccupied with the interpretation of normal and minor body sensations as an indication of potent future serious ailment. Although it is normal for an individual to get tensed or nervous if he or she experiences any kind of abnormality in their body and they need not be necessarily termed as Hyperchondriac. But if the fear lasts for more than 6 months in all likelihood it is apparent that the individual is a Hyperchondriac. For a Hypercondriac person even simple headache or a runny nose, slightly swollen lymph nodes or as simple as a throat sore can be cause of serious worry. No amount of reassurance are helpful for such persons. Even after repeated medical evaluations and consultation with doctors such persons remain adamant on there belief and refuse to accept that they are fit and fine. Their anxiety remains high and their desire for more physical attention grows. Hypercondriac is caused by anxiety that can affect your physical and mental signs such as headaches and fear of death because of the illness. It may lead to chronic fatigue or tiredness of the whole body, develop muscle tension, uncontrollable sweating, shaking or trembling, frequent need to urinate and chest pains and change in the heart beat that affect breath. Some of the other symptoms can be mood swings that make you feel wrong and cry for no reasons. You may develop fears of how people think of you, feel trapped in a non-existent world, fear the public and fear of the unknown.
