Agoraphobia is an illness which affects approximately 5% of Americans in a given year. The anxiety and fear that being out causes is very real and often leads to terrifying panic attacks.
People who suffer from a Panic Disorders have sudden and repeated attacks of severe fear that lasts for several minutes or longer and can be terrifying to the individual suffering the attack. These episodes are called panic attacks. Many people express the belief that they are dying or going insane during these attack periods, even when there is no real danger. An attack may also feel like a heart attack.
Panic attacks can happen at any time, and those who suffer with panic attacks constantly worry about when the next attack will occur. This obviously can seriously interfere with a person’s ability to engage in full time work activity in a sustained capacity.
