Home > Specific Phobias> Symptoms

A specific phobia can be described, not only as an extreme fear, but as an irrational one of a particular thing. Such individuals may have no problem sky diving but may have extreme difficulty going down an escalator. A specific phobia can be defined as an intense fear of something that poses little or no actual danger. Though individuals experiencing these phobias may be aware that the fear they feel is irrational, they often find that facing the said fear causes severe anxiety or may even cause a panic attack. Examples of some of the more common specific phobias include the following:
  • Closed-in places
  • Heights
  • Escalators
  • Tunnels
  • Highway driving
  • Water
  • Flying
  • Dogs
  • Injuries involving blood
