Insight into Cyberchondria-a symptom checker

Pradhiba

Many people who experience severe illness will search the internet for self-diagnosis. It is estimated that about 70% of people rely on the internet to get medical information. For some people the information gives them relief and for some people it increases their anxiety level. Cyberchondria refers to the anxiety experienced by the person while searching information related to their health through online. Cyberchondria leads to non-medical problems due to stress. It generally affects the family and social relationship. It can also leads to financial crisis in person’s life.
