Hypochondriacs have an "abnormal anxiety about one's health, especially with an unwarranted fear that one has a serious disease". Read on to find out if you're a TRUE hypochondriac.

3. At one point, you've said to yourself, "I totally have that!!"

You totally have it.

4. If you think you have something, you'll bug your doctor until s/he decides to check up on it.

5. Or you switch doctors until you find one that will tell you what you want to hear.

6. You've had your fair share of blood tests, MRIs or other medical tests, and every time your results are in it's a bittersweet moment.

Now that you mention it, my hair HAS been feeling more brittle lately...

8. You see potential health issues everywhere.

WHAT'S THIS DOT ON MY ARM? Oh, false alarm. Just a hair.
