Comedy and health are two things that often go hand in hand. After all, laughter is the best medicine, right? But what happens when you have health anxiety?

Abhishek Upmanyu is a stand-up comedian who knows a thing or two about health anxiety. In his latest special, "Health Anxiety," he opens up about his own battle with the condition and how it's affected his life.

Upmanyu's anxiety manifests itself in a number of ways. He's constantly worried about his health, even though he's perfectly healthy. He obsessively checks his body for any signs of illness and Googles every little symptom.

This leads to a lot of self-diagnosing, which is never a good idea. Upmanyu has diagnosed himself with everything from cancer to Ebola.

Thankfully, he's able to find humor in his situation and uses it to cope with his anxiety. He also finds comfort in knowing that he's not alone in his struggle.

If you're struggling with health anxiety, know that you're not alone. And if you need a good laugh, be sure to check out Abhishek Upmanyu's "Health Anxiety" special.
