Hypochondriasis is commonly refered to as "Health phobia"..The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders defines this disorder, "Hypochondriasis," as a somatoform disorder and one study has shown it to affect about 3% of the population...But i may say that its kinda common... Everyone do have some small amount of Hypochondriasis in their mind... Right???

Now u'll just say.... Oh No am not that mad...haha..None will accept they are mad...forget about it...My friend is a Doctor..and he says most of his patients suffer from this disorder..They will guess they are suffering from cancer..or some bloody diseases...Thats purely fictional...i may say...

Wont you feel that you are suffering from an illness when someone tells you the symptoms of that illness??? Its human nature...This happening because everyone loves to live... and they care about them more than anything in this whole damn world...its perfectly psychological...Dont you feel?? If you think that you are feeling so...then i may recommend to consult a psychiatrist soon...Hey i was just I?? hahaha :)

The best way to deal with someone who is suffering from Hypochondriasis is to tell them or accept them that they are weak...Tell the Doctor to accept him as a Patient who is suffering from severe illness... and on regular basis give him medicinal tablets...Give him some Vitamin Tablets..its good for their health and will do no harm.and dont buy those colorful vitamin tablets...because if that patient is a smart ass ..he'll surely kick your ass off...

And do give him those tablets daily..One in morning..two after lunch and one at you like...and tell him not to change the timing...and scold him if he miss to have medicine. This will make him to think that its perfectly genuine...and please dont over act...because he'll think he gonna die and this will further create much more complex problems. Visit doctor after having medicine for sometime..if he stills says there is no change..then Doctor have to prescribe Overdose medicine..(Saying will do...).. and give him same medicine or give him Vitamin tablets manufacted by some other company..

The next time when you visit the doctor should say you are doing well...or something like that. After sometime he too will feel that he is doing well... this surely works...Otherwise these guys going to be a big problem.. Because you cant do your work... Do this...This surely Keep them calm and you will get peace...tell them to sleep if you cant tolerate them...

Hope i helped you...but am not very informative in this subject...but i think this will work..if its not working..then we have to think of some alternatives...

Ah...Forgot to tell ...Dont Misunderstand a real disease as Hypochondriasis...Please consult a doctor if he tells that the patient is perfectly alright .......then its ok...
