According to new data released 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 UNITED STATES IS INSOMNIA
According to information published by CertaAnimal, which is a leading company in the supply and coordination of service animals and emotional support animals for people, insomnia is number one.
However, in the data, which is based on Google Trends and other search criteria over the last year, in WA and OR, the most searched medical condition is ADHD.
20 states, including California, New Mexico, Arizona, Texas, and nearly all of the Southeast, showed up with Insomnia as the most wanted.
7 STATES HAVE ADHD AT THE TOP OF SEARCHES
They included WA, OR, Nebraska, Indiana, Kansas, Tennesee and Utah. A number of other categories only appeared once. Some of the other criteria that were the most frequent search in a single state included:
- Anxiety Disorder: Maine
- PTSD: Alaska
- Panic Disorder: Arkansas
Considering COVID, this is rather surprising. 5 states listed alcoholism as the most searched medical condition, binge eating disorder in 3, and schizophrenia in 2.
The data is rather startling, considering the issues we’ve faced as Americans during COVID. But it’s also possible that the increase in searches for ADHD information stems from the long lockouts of children from our schools.
Before you know it, warmer weather will be here, which often helps our moods.
