paura di ammalarsi

Hypochondria test

This test has been developed by Noanxiety.com to give you the possibility to verify the presence of thoughts and behaviours generally associated with hypochondria. A hypochondriac person is always worried about his/her health and presents an irrational fear of contracting diseases. This fear comes from an incorrect interpretation of the "symptoms" perceived by the person. Please remember that this test has no diagnostic value.
