Specific Phobias

 

A specific phobia is an irrational fear of specific objects or situations.

Some specific phobias cause little inconvenience, while others severely interfere with functioning. For example, a city dweller who is afraid of snakes may have no trouble avoiding them.

However, a city dweller who fears small, closed places such as elevators may encounter them frequently.

Some specific phobias, such as fear of large animals, the dark, or strangers, begin early in life.

Many such phobias stop as people get older.

Other phobias, such as fear of rodents, insects, storms, water, heights, flying, or enclosed places, typically develop later in life.

At least 5% of people are to some degree phobic about blood, injections, or injury. These people can actually faint because of a decrease in heart rate and blood pressure, which does not happen with other phobias and anxiety disorders.

Many people with other phobias and anxiety disorders hyperventilate. Hyperventilating can cause them to feel as though they might faint, although they virtually never faint.
