Are you, by any chance, not a cyberchondrick?

Soon we will ask each other such questions. Remember, as in a well-known literary work: I read the medical encyclopedia and found all diseases except for fever. Now everything is much more serious. Encyclopedias have given way to the Internet. And it began! … The availability of medical information is growing into real epidemics of various diseases.

Cyberchondria is a disease from medical information. According to American scientists, the availability of medical information online has led to an increase in the incidence of cyberchondria in the world – a disorder consisting in the desire to make an independent diagnosis based on the symptoms of diseases described on the Internet sites. The results of a study of people’s reactions to medical information on the Internet are provided in the journal Cyberpsychology, Behavior and Social Networking.

What Concerns for Health Lead

As the author of the work Thomas Fergus explains, a person who does not tolerate uncertainty and uncertainty can become very anxious – start looking for information on an exciting topic, examine his body, go to the doctors more often and feel more tired and sick. The problem is that the more a person searches, the more possible disease options he can find in his home. According to Dr. Fergus, concern for one’s health, whether justified or not, can cause people to fear disability, job loss and billing for medical services.

Previous studies have shown that approximately every 8 out of 10 Americans turned to the Internet for medical information. In the latest work, the scientist examined more than 500 healthy people, whose average age was 33 years. Of these, 55% were women, 53% worked at least 20 hours a week, and about 67% were unmarried.

Many fear the worst

To assess the level of anxiety of the subjects, the researcher used various tests in which people evaluated statements such as, for example, “I always want to know what the future can wait for me” and “I spend most of my time worrying about my health”.

According to the scientist, fearing the worst when it comes to health is common to many, however, as the results of the study showed, the abundance of accessible medical information on the Internet, some of which is rather doubtful, is a much more disturbing factor than the information that is stated in medical reference books or obtained directly from the doctor.

This is a type of hypochondria.

“When you look at medical books,” says Thomas Fergus, “you cannot immediately see all the possible diseases that correspond to your symptoms, but they are provided to you in large numbers on the Internet.”

Cyberchondria is a type of hypochondria. Symptoms such as excessive anxiety in matters of one’s own health and well-being, rapid transition from suspicion to confidence in the presence of the disease after reading the relevant information online, passion for online examinations, distrust of doctors working in hospitals and clinics, constant monitoring of this disease are observed. the main indicators of the state of the body (pulse, respiration, body temperature, blood pressure), as well as the frequent change of doctors.
