Hypochondria and High Blood Pressure
Hello all, I have suffered from hypochondria since about 19. Ive had tests for just about every kind of cancer, as well as HIV, Lupus you name it. However last year I was diagnosed with hypertension, also known as high blood pressure. Now I consistently focus on blood pressure, reading statistics on strokes and heart attacks. I can't help but take it 30-40 times a day and although it is controlled on medication, it ocassionaly spikes and it sends me into days of inactivity and fear.
Am I still a hypochondriac if I have hypertension? And are there any other hypochondriacs out there with it?
