    In first year whenever I had stomach pain I had a feeling like its coming from McBurney's point :D
    Then in third year I had a single episode of hemoptysis. I discovered that I had lost 2kg wt in last month. I kept searching for other symptoms and really found evening rise of temp and a little bit cough. I did a CXR & came up with nothing :p

    or maybe you are in a psychiatry class, and as the doctor is busy teaching about personality disorders and psychoses, you start thinking that you probably have one,especially Bipolar!!!!

    Well, sometimes having some medical knowledge can actually be a blessing when confronted to a real and often misdiagnosed disease... We just have to use this knowledge wisely.

    1. How do you explain experiencing the symptoms of the disease you are studying as a medical student?
    2. What really happens to the mind of a medical student?
    3. Have been told that the syndrome causes fear ( health phobia or health anxiety) in students and that some authors have suggested to call it "Nosophobia" rather than "Hypochondriasis
    " because of the low Hypochondriacal behavior in the students suffering this syndrome.
    4. Nosophobia being the fear of contracting a specific disease which be Heart Disease, for example.

    I feel like everyone at one point or another feels that way. Its inevitable to feel like that your perfect. Once you get into medicine, you realize that the only person you need to satisfy is yourself. did you get the marks you wanted? No? Then, go to educational resources or get a tutor. its okay to be struggling in a class. Its ok because things take time and not every subject comes naturally to every person. Medicine of all things should require persistance, the studying isn't done after medical school.
