Well, from looking on the net, there does seem to be that part of hypochondria which can result in physical pain.

You say: " i'm constantly thinking i have the worst case illnesses constantly currently treating this but its tough battle and i always in pain"

Can you think of the good things you have going for you?

Can you volunteer at a dog pound and think about some of the rough things they have going for them, and try to help them.

They will help you, also, if you'll give them a chance.

Hi ubepaul,

Welcome to the forum!

I am sorry to hear of your struggles. Have you tried mindfulness for your pain? Even though the pain is physical, mindfulness can help. Some years ago, I got into a car accident and received some damages which caused a lot of pain. I used mindfulness which helped me through the pain sometimes.

Check out our resources area where you can get info on mindfulness in the anxiety, bipolar or depression sections:

I hope it helps and you feel better.
