About the Author "Susan Baur's book is a mixture of medical history, popular science and intelligent general reflection. Ms. Baur traces her story to antiquity, to Hippocrates and Galen, and brings it up to date with the findings of recent research; she moves easily between contemporary case histories and some of the great hypochondriacs of the past."John Gross, New York Times "An enjoyable, literate examination of how hypochondriacs come to be, how they maintain their condition, and how they have been viewed over the ages. Baur has examined the recent literature and has a good grasp of the historical underpinnings; she weaves this together into a tale that is far more entertaining than the standard popular medical primer." Kirkus Reviews "[Baur] draws on the experiences of a vast army of hypochondriacs past and present, known and unknown, to identify the condition and the consequences for the relationships the sufferer has with his or her surroundings. An excellent study for those on each side of the situation."

A persistent preoccupation with the possibility of having one or more serious progressive illnesses. Normal sensations are interpreted as abnormal or distressing. Attention is usually focussed on one or two areas of the body. Marked depression and anxiety are often present. Many people remain living relatively normal lives, and a psychiatric referral is often deeply resented, unless early in the development of the disorder.

September-October 2001 More cutting edge research... Next article... Right Now Same as it Never Was In 1688 a Swiss doctor, Johannes Hofer, identified a new medical syndrome, nostalgia : "the sad mood originating from the desire for return to one's native land." Various displaced Swiss of the seventeenth century suffered from the diseasestudents from the Republic of Berne studying in Basel; domestics working in France and Germany; soldiers fighting abroad. The nostalgia syndrome removed people from present reality. Sufferers took on a lifeless and haggard countenance, became indifferent to their surroundings, confused past and present, and even hallucinated voices and ghosts. "It was considered a curable disease," says professor of Slavic languages and literatures and comparative literature Svetlana Boym, Ph.D. '88, who has spent years studying the different manifestations of nostalgia. Once called "a hypochondria of the heart," nostalgia has now become an experience that nearly all adults can recognize. Boym's recent work, The Future of Nostalgia (Basic Books), explores nostalgia's value as well as its snares.

It's the butt of jokes and the bane of the medical community, but hypochondria is a real illness, and people with it suffer real pain. We'll explore everything from the history of the disorder to the latest treatments. Guests include: Dr. Arthur Barsky , a professor of psychiatry at Harvard Medical School and the director of psychosomatic research at Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston; Carla Cantor , the author of "Phantom Illness: Recognizing, Understanding, and Overcoming Hypochondria"; Dr. Susan Baur , the author of "Hypochondria: Woeful Imaginings"; and Gene Weingarten , a humor columnist for The Washington Post and the author of "The Hypochondriac's Guide to Life. And Death." Dr. Fred Goodwin begins with an essay in which he describes how normal health anxiety which he, himself, felt recently when he found a strange-looking mole differs from hypochondria. Once the dermatologist's tests came back negative, Dr. Goodwin stopped worrying. A person with hypochondria cannot be reassured he or she will continue to obsess. But, he says, this reaction should not be dismissed as "all in the head." Hypochondria is, itself, a real illness, and people with it are in real pain. As our guests discuss, there are even effective treatments. However, given the nature of the current healthcare system, the disorder still often goes undetected, and patients are not able to access proper care.

How to Treat Hypochondria
The participants of this study included 102 patients assigned to receive psychotherapy sessions and 85 who received routine medical care. The results of the study concluded that in the 102 patients who received six sessions of therapy, nearly 57 percent showed significant signs of improvement after a year, compared with the 32 percent who received routine medical care. Hypochondria, a condition where a person is preoccupied with thoughts of having a serious disease, affects approximately 5 percent of patients who seek help from primary-care doctors. Since these types of patients frequently switch doctors until they get the diagnosis they are looking for, hypochondria has remained a difficult condition to treat. Some doctors have claimed hypochondria is linked to genetics, while others have suggested it is a learned behavior from patients who have a tendency to overreact to illnesses. The cause of hypochondria has yet to be determined. Washington Post March 24, 2004

Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy Effective in Treating Hypochondria
by Krisha McCoy, MS People with hypochondria carry a persistent fear that real or imagined physical symptoms point to a serious illness, even when medical evidence suggests the contrary. It is believed that approximately one in 20 people who visit physicians on an outpatient basis suffer from hypochondria, which can significantly impair a persons quality of life. People with hypochondria benefit most when they have a close relationship with a healthcare provider, who can provide reassurance that a medical condition does not exist, and treat symptoms if necessary. In the past, psychological treatment and medications have had disappointing results in hypochondriacal patients. But a new study in the March 24/31 issue of the Journal of the American Medical Association found that a series of behavioral therapy sessions significantly reduced anxieties in people with hypochondria.
About the Study
This study included 187 people who screened positive for hypochondria or borderline hypochondria according to well accepted, standardized criteria. The participants were either recruited through their primary care practices (80) or responded to public announcements (107).

more about Hypochondria

  • Tremendous fear of illness
  • Symptoms may be vague or very specific
  • Misinterpretation of symptoms (e.g., a simple rash may be perceived as cancer)

Hypochondriasis / Hypochondria
(Intense Illness Concern)
Hypochondriasis, also known as Intense Illness Concern, and Hypochondria, involves a preoccupation with fears of having, or the idea that one has, a serious disease such as heart disease, cancer or multiple sclerosis, based on the person's misinterpretation of bodily symptoms.
The fear persists despite reassurance to the contrary from physicians. Illness fears can be triggered by bothersome physical symptoms such as headaches or stomach problems. In addition, fears can be made worse by stories about illness either in the media, Internet discussion lists, or from friends and family. Many quacks live off of these people.
Some people fear one specific illness while others fear many different illnesses. Because of their illness fears, some individuals go to the doctor frequently, see many specialists, and have extensive medical tests. Others avoid going to the doctor because of their illness fears. They may subconsciously fear that their doctor may suspect that they are deluded or even malingering. They may well risk being mistaken for being a factitious liar
Many people who worry about their health find that they check their bodies routinely for signs of disease and often ask others for reassurance that they are healthy. They are easy marks for so-called "self-health" ideas, where medical science and doctors are scoffed at, their own perceptions are considered superior, and quacks with a little knowledge are looked up to.
