Health Tip: Understanding Phobias


HealthDay News
Updated: Jul 25th 2019

(HealthDay News) -- A phobia is an anxiety disorder that produces a strong, irrational fear of something that poses little danger, says the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.

Phobias can range from a fear of highway driving to a fear of blood.

When people are anxious and extremely self-conscious in social situations, they may have a social phobia.

People with a phobia try to avoid what they are afraid of. If they cannot avoid the fear, they may experience panic, rapid heartbeat, shortness of breath, trembling and a strong desire to leave the phobic situation.

Treatment options include medication, therapy or both.
