https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cyberchondria

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Cyberchondria, otherwise known as 'compucondria', the unfounded escalation of concerns about common symptomology based on review of search results and literature online.[1][2] Articles in popular media position cyberchondria anywhere from temporary neurotic excess to adjunct hypochondria. Cyberchondria is a growing concern among many healthcare practitioners as patients can now research any and all symptoms of a rare disease, illness or condition, and manifest a state of medical anxiety.
