Hello scrolled down the web pages piece on what they called Cyber Chondria. People have been contacting their doctors because they suffer from what researchers say is Health Anxiety. Seeing health items on the web that they might have. The article says £420 million is wasted on unnecessary treatments. I feel it is another health story that interests me. I got in too healthy eating and herbs, spices because I felt some of the medications I was taking over the counter ones for stomach problems bought on by severe anxiety. Looking on the web and reading found certain herbs, spices certain foods benefited my well being and helped lessen some of the ailments I was experiencing. So am I an Cyber Chondriac.? I try to help my problems as much as possible. I have also found it is not easy to contact health services my doctors as the waiting times are lengthy. Should we as a community feel guilty asking for help on the web if it useful or to we need at all times to contact the GP for every little problem. What do others think?
