Hypochondria is the depression of the mind the mind or in spirit, often centered on imaginary physical ailments. In other words, it means that people imagine that they have one form of sickness or the other. They repeatedly go to the doctor not just thinking, but believing that they have some fatal disease that is going to kill them.

Many people have been known to go to the doctor every day, with thoughts that something is wrong. After a while, the doctor catches onto what the patient is thinking, and will tell them that hypochondria, is what they have. Most of the time, they will not believe the doctor, and then from there on the doctor will prescribe a placebo for the patient. (a sugar pill) This is usually reserved for patients with this condition.

Even from there, the doctor may encourage them go get further help, and seek counseling as well to assist the patient in understanding what the condition is. Hope this help
