Are you terrified of something that does not seem scary to others? Do you try to avoid something just so that your fears don’t bother you? Commonly, phobias can include irrational fear of animals, insects, heights, public speaking and being in closes spaces such as elevators.

There may be otherwise good adjustment to general life situations but one may experience physical symptoms such as sweating, nausea, trembling, palpitations, or dizziness when one has to face the situation that causes apparently paralysing fear.

Phobias are treatable and one can get relief from this problem.
