These Are The Most Googled Health Problems In Maine and New Hampshire
Nowadays we all share the same primary care physician; Dr. Google. We are able to diagnose ourselves with just about any disease with just a few taps of the keyboard. Its a hypochondriacs dream! Or nightmare, rather.
A website called medicarehealthplans.com conducted a study to determine which health problems were being googled most frequently in each state. You might find the results home-hitting.
In New Hampshire, people are googling ADHD the most. That goes the same for Massachusetts.
Many children and adults too have issues focusing at work or school and the "go to" diagnosis seems to be ADD or ADHD.
The most googled health problem in Maine is Rabies.
This is pretty crazy given the recent stories in the news of people being attacked by rabid animals in Maine.
As far as the rest of New England, Vermont was googling opioid use disorder. That isn't uncharacteristic as Vermont has one of the highest rates of opioid-related deaths in the country.
Connecticut googled quarter life crisis! Which I find amusing because I thought that was something we made up to describe the breakdown of turning 25 and not having your life completely where you hoped it would be.
Rhode Island googled Lupus.
