Birth of a new Hypochondriac

Now with the internet, there is a new breed of Hypochondriacs, they are called Cyberchondriacs. These are people who study conditions on the internet for self-treatment. These people will go against advice of their doctor because of something they read on the internet. Some people want to have the biggest and baddest disease or condition when in fact, it may be nothing at all. Lookout WebMD, you may be need to start up a support group for your visitors who are addicted to your site.
