      #201215 - 07/25/06 02:34 AM

For each question, write down the number indicating how much this is true for you.
1=not at all
2=a little bit
3=moderately
4=quite a bit
5=a great deal

1. do you worry a lot about your health?

2. Do you think there is something seriously wrong with your body?

3. Is it hard for you to forget abot yourself and think about all sorts of other things?

4. If you feel ill and someone tells you that you are looking better, do you become annoyed?

5. Do you find that you are often aware of various things happening in your body?

6. Are you bothered by many aches and pains?

7. Are you afraid of illness?

8. Do you worry about your health more than most people?

9. Do you get the feeling that people are not taking your illnesses seriously enough?

10. Is it hard for you to believe the doctor when he/she tells you there is nothing for you to worry about?

11. Do you often worry about the possibility that you have a serious illness?

12. If a disease is brought to your attention (through the radio, TV, newspapers, or someone you know), do you worry about getting it yourself?

13. Do you find that you are bothered by many different symptoms?

14. Do you often have the symptoms of a very serious illness?

Now add the numbers from all the questions above.
14-28 range: healthy
anywhere near 32-55: hypochondria

A high score may also signal symptoms of depression or anxiety disorders.
