Agoraphobia

Agoraphobia is a Greek word that means "fear of the marketplace," and actually refers to a type of anxiety or panic disorder. A person with agoraphobia is fearful of having a panic attack if they leave home without a trusted companion, and many actually do become housebound.

Symptoms include severe anxiety and dread at the thought of leaving the home or other place that is perceived as safe; hyperventilating; rapid heartbeat; and trembling. The person may be especially fearful of crowds or of small enclosed spaces such as elevators. Avoidance of such places actually makes the symptoms worse.

Panic disorders such as agoraphobia can be debilitating and greatly interfere with leading a normal life. But there is good help available to manage the symptoms and eventually move past the condition.
