my familyis suffering because of my fears about this. 29 msv was
just one exam. i know i need help but is it hypochondria like my
husband is saying or is this s areal concern? everyone says its anxiety.

It is hypochondria if you cannot let go of these thoughts about the radiation exposure. I will be honest here, i have no idea whether that is a legitemate concern or not (although I doubt you have anything to be worried about). However, it is not so much the legitemacy of the thoughts but the inability to stop thinking about them which is the hypochondria.
