Fear of Enclosed Spaces (Claustrophobia)

Symptoms and signs of Claustrophobia

Do you or anyone you know suffer from a fear of enclosed spaces, the condition more commonly known as Claustrophobia? This phobia is triggered by certain situations, such as being in an elevator, a small room, the cabin of an aeroplane etc When it comes to Claustrophobia you can experience some of the following unpleasant and often debilitating symptoms which affect your everyday life. Feelings of nausea, fainting, increased heart rate and shaking are the most common feelings. In general these symptoms may be mistaken for a panic attack even though the condition is really a phobia which the brain has learned through a patterned response at some point.

Where does this phobia for enclosed spaces originate?

Most likely your Claustrophobia can start when you are a child, perhaps in a situation where you found yourself trapped in a small, confined space when you were exploring. It can also start later in life due to a traumatic incident which leaves you feeling trapped and unable to cope through stresses brought about by work or even in your personal life.
When I was really young my brother locked me in a cupboard for a joke. Kids play, but this game left me unable to be anywhere where I felt hemmed in. I am now free of my fear becasue I have learned to spin the feeling away and find my level quickly. Cheers Dave
