Acrophobia: fear of heights
Acrophobia is a persistent and extreme or irrational morbid fear of heights. Depending on the phobia’s severity, an acrophobic person may equally fear being on a high floor of a building, climbing a ladder and any other activity that involves being at height. This is one of the most common phobias which cause an intense, irrational fear of objects or situations.
Acrophobia can be dangerous, as in situations where the person has a panic attack in a high place and becomes too agitated to get themselves down safely. Some acrophobics also suffer from urges to throw themselves off high places, despite not being suicidal.
