Is it possible to trick yourself into feeling [any kind of] symptoms?

I won't go into too much detail, but basically I was stressing about getting sick because of something stupid and I was reading up online and reading all of these symptoms and obsessing over it.

Your mind is very powerfull it shows just how powerful it is and you can also learn to use it in a more posotive way,I used to look up how i was feeling on the internet also and i picked the worst symtoms and felt that is what i had,but soon learned i could go to a totally different illness and it had the same symtoms,so i dont bother looking a illness up.In my case it was only anxiety and i dont go on the internet for that anymore.
