THE Most-Searched Medical Condition? Insomnia–But Not By WA, OR
According to new data published by a leading service animal company, most Americans are troubled by not being able to sleep. But apparently not in WA and Oregon?
THE MOST SEARCHED MEDICAL CONDITION IN THE US IS INSOMNIA
According to information published by CertaPet, who is a leading company for supplying and coordinating Service Animals and Emotional Service Pets for people, Insomnia is Number One.
However, in the data, which is based upon Google Trends and other search criteria over the last year, in WA and OR the most searched medical condition is ADHD.
20 states, including CA, New Mexico, Arizona, Texas, and almost the entire Southeast, showed up with Insomnia as the most searched.
7 STATES SHOWED ADHD AS TOP SEARCH
They included WA, OR, Nebraska, Indiana, Kansas, Tennesee, and Utah. A number of other categories showed up only once. Some of the other criteria which were the top search in only one state included:
- Anxiety Disorder: Maine
- PTSD: Alaska
- Panic Disorder: Arkansas
Considering COVID, that's rather surprising. 5 states showed Alcoholism as the most searched medical condition, Binge Eating Disorders in 3, and Schizophrenia in 2.
The data is rather surprising, considering the issues we've faced as Americans during COVID. But it is possible as well, that the increased searches for ADHD information help stem from the lengthy lockouts of children from our schools.
Before you know it, warmer weather will be here, which often helps our moods.
