Summary

Where do you go for help when no one believes you're really sick? The doctors can't explain your symptoms, but you know there's something wrong because you can sense it in your body. 

Living with the specter of an unresolved health issue isn't just painful, it's isolating. The preoccupation and stress it causes can disrupt your career or interfere with personal relationships. If you continually experience symptoms of illness, or worry a lot about disease, you may be suffering from health anxiety - a condition that can produce physical effects of its own, including muscle tension, nausea, and a quickened heart rate. 

In this compassionate and empowering book, noted psychologists Gordon J. G. Asmundson and Steven Taylor provide simple and accurate self-tests designed to help you understand health anxiety and the role it might be playing in how you feel. Concrete examples and helpful exercises show you how to change thought and behavior patterns that contribute to the aches, pains, and anxiety you're experiencing. 

The authors also explain how to involve friends and family - and when to seek professional help - as you learn to stay well without worry.

Great book for those who worry excessively about their health

This book does a great job of diving into the intricacies of health anxiety. It helps to highlight other personal disorders and issues that maybe the root cause of the health anxiety and really takes a 360 approach. The book can be a bit dry, but this topic I don’t think can be made “sexy”
through an audio book. I think this is a great read for those who have seen many doctors and continue to have bodily issues, but are told “you are okay”. It’s true, it’s not all in your head.
