Cyberchondria…yep, you have your own term now. You are a symptom searcher. What does it mean exactly? Cyberchondria is a designation given to those who research AND diagnose an illness online. And it’s not just you. Research shows that of the 81% of U.S. adults (that use the internet) 59% are using it to find information about their health. And just in case you weren’t aware of it — the internet doesn’t always tell the truth. Don’t agree? Let me ask you this — Did you really LOL the last time you wrote those three letters? Exactly.
