Have you ever been curious about what the most common reasons people in the U.S. visit emergency room visits are? Thanks to the Atlantic, you can see them all, arranged by region.
Using data from the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, a map was created revealing the most common regional reasons for ER visits. Everything in the South, Midwest and West sounds normal, but the North makes you wonder what the hell people up top are getting themselves into.
The Atlantic notes that, regardless of the area, each region has the same top four complaints, they're just listed in different order. Should you find yourself enduring the average 28-minute emergency room wait, rest assured knowing that someone in a different part of the U.S. is probably there for the same reason as you.
