Do I Have Health Anxiety?

You’ve probably found yourself worrying a bit more than normal over physical symptoms you’re experiencing, or perhaps even going down a rabbit hole looking up your symptoms online or asking your doctor about it. In severe cases, this is known as health anxiety or hypochondria. But when is it normal to worry about your health and when it is causing you more problems? We speak to consultant clinical psychologist Lavender Tan to help us better understand this condition and how it affects the lives of individuals who are dealing with it.
