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.

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.
