Hypochondriasis is a chronic & intermittent ( occurs on & off with recovery between episodes)
The long term prognosis depends on multiple factors as each patient & contributing factors are different. Your doctor should be able to tell about your prognosis after discussing in detail & your past history.
Worrying will not solve the problem but active discussion with your treating doctor will help to be prepared to deal with the disorder effectively.
Hypochondriasis is usually part of an Anxiety spectrum of disorders, and can be treated with the help of medication as well as therapy either alone or in combination. I suggest that you don't Google up your symptoms as this may just increase your anxiety further like you have mentioned. Most of the articles are not written by a scientific community which are well researched before publishing. You have been treated earlier and have felt relief and I am sure it will happen again. Hope this helps. I further suggest you consult with a psychiatrist for further therapy.
