A hypochondriac is a person who constantly has imagined illnesses and diseases. They are convinced they have one serious illness or another, one after another. They go to doctor after doctor, trying to find one to validate their belief that they have some sort of serious illness.

It sometimes gets so severe their body may actually begin to mimic the symptoms of the disease or illness they believe they have.
