Phobia: A phobia is defined as an irrational, intense fear of an object or situation that poses little or no actual danger. At first glance, a phobia may seem similar to a normal fear, but it's is the degree to which a person is affected that determines whether that fear has become a phobia.

Understanding your phobia is the first step to overcoming it. It’s important to know that phobias are common. Having a phobia doesn’t mean you’re crazy! It also helps to know that phobias are highly treatable. You can overcome your anxiety and fear, no matter how out of control it feels.

Social and specific phobias sometimes run in families, providing evidence of a genetic connection. Some people are born with a predisposition towards anxiety, which makes them particularly susceptible to developing phobias.

Symptoms of phobia:
Panic attack is common in people with agoraphobia, social phobia, and specific phobia. Symptoms experienced during a panic attack include the following:
v  Abdominal distress
v  Chest pain or discomfort
v  Chills or hot flashes
v  Fear of dying
v  Fear of losing control or going crazy
v  Feeling faint, dizzy, lightheaded, unsteady
v  Feeling of choking
v  Feeling of unreality or of being detached from oneself
v  Numbness or tingling sensations
v  Palpitations, pounding heart, racing heartbeat
v  Shortness of breath, feeling smothered
v  Sweating
v  Trembling or shaking
Some people with agoraphobia become fearful of having a panic attack in any public place or situation and eventually fear and avoid leaving their home. Some are capable of leaving home only with someone they trust. Others become completely housebound. Those who are housebound can suffer severe anxiety or nervousness even inside their home.
