Where do we hurt? Well here’s a graphic showing the number of Google search results corresponding to particular part of the body (e.g. “back pain” and “shoulder pain”)

I would’ve thought back pain and knee pain to be more prevalent but hand and foot pain greatly dwarfs the other parts of the body!

The data

Here are the number of search results for each search term, and the color for the corresponding bins used in the graphic.
