Symptoms and Treatment of Agoraphobia

Master Of Science In Counseling & Psychotherapy
Psychologist, Bangalore
Symptoms and Treatment of Agoraphobia

Agoraphobia can be defined as the fear of being in a situation from which one cannot escape or a situation that humiliates the person. This causes people to avoid situations that they anticipate to be humiliating. Such a situation makes the person feel trapped and helpless. Everyday situations like standing in a queue, getting into an elevator, using public transport etc. can trigger Agoraphobia. 

Agoraphobia affects more women than men. It usually affects people under the age of 35, but can sometimes affect older people as well. Having a relative in the immediate family circle that suffers from this condition can also increase a person's risk of suffering from it as well. Additionally, the death of a parent or loved one or domestic abuse could also trigger such behavior. Depression and alcohol or drug abuse could also increase a person's risk of suffering from this psychological disorder.

This phobia usually develops after a person experiences panic attacks or goes through an extremely stressful experience. Some typical symptoms of Agoraphobia include:

  1. The fear of being alone
  2. Fear of crowded places
  3. Fear of being in locked places from where you cannot escape
  4. Fear of losing control of one's actions
  5. Inability to leave the house alone
  6. Helplessness
  7. Being overly dependent on others

You may also experience symptoms similar to those of a panic attack, such as excessive sweating, breathing difficulty, dizziness, diarrhea and chest pain.

An in depth interview with a counselor or doctor can help diagnose such a condition. A physical examination can also help rule out other health conditions that could be triggering such a reaction. To be diagnosed with Agoraphobia the patient needs to present at least two of the below symptoms:

  1. Severe fear of public transportation
  2. Fear of being in an open space such as a parking lot or mall
  3. Fear of being in closed spaces such as movie halls or elevators
  4. Fear of standing in line
  5. Fear of being in a crowd
  6. Fear of leaving home alone

Treatment for such a condition involves medication and psychotherapy. Anti depressants and anti anxiety medications are commonly used to treat such disorders. There are a number of different types of such medication and you may need to experiment with them before finding one that suits you. Psychotherapy or talk therapy focuses on cognitive behavioral therapy that reduces anxiety symptoms and teaches patients how to deal with fears. If you fear leaving the home alone, you could take someone along with you or consult a therapist who can offer you telephonic advice, through email or meet you at your home.

Dear lybrate-user. Please understand there are no short cuts to cure the performance anxiety on bed. This happens because of over expectation. But the more you try to cure it, the more it worsens. That is the basic problem of any performance anxiety. So keep this in mind. Approach it coolly. If not today, tomorrow it will be ok. If you want an" immediate cure" it worsens. Take care.

If depression is the main problem you should continue to be under the care of a psychiatrist regularly. Apart from medication you should have healthy life style, regular exercise like walking, relaxing techniques like deep breathing, pranayaam, etc and counselling by psychologist to get at the root of problem

Chest pain irregular heartbeat and Anxiety trouble sleeping fear in public place.

Chest pain irregular heartbeat and Anxiety trouble sleeping fear in public place.
Dear Lybrate user You seem to be an introvert and social anxiety. Anxiety may disturb your sleep and also cause physical stuff like you have mentioned chest pain and irregular heartbeats. Anxiety has become very common these days. Monitor your negative thoughts that you have which make you anxious and challange those thoughts. Like your fear in public places challenge this thing amd think what is fearful in this? Many people are easily living in society with no fear at all. If you are very much conscious about yourself then stop getting carried away for the same. Try to think rationally about things which make you anxious. Remember being an introvert is not bad and introverts have the strengths as well. Identify your strengths and work on them feel proud that you have them. Many people do not have it. Have a good and timely sleep. Feed your body with good nutritious food and that too on time. Do meditation or yoga or a brisk walk in the morning. Spend time with people you love people with whom you are happy amd comfortable. Make goals in your life if you have not already. Goals regarding health finance relationships etc. And work hard to achieve them. Following your goals is a pleasant and satisfactory feeling. You can also take Mind Training from us and that too online by staying at your home only just like many other people. Contact me for more information regarding this. Good luck. Take care.

Hi. I am 27 years old male single. I cannot control my anger. And whenever I get angry or falls into any kind of arguments my heart beats very fast and hand and legs starts to shiver. Please help.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

The physical reactions you describe indicate that you could be really scared but acting angry to cover it up. The fear is an energy sapping feeling, whereas the anger supplies energy! that is why many people act angry when they are really sacred. If that is true for you too, look into that and talk to a counselor, if you do not understand the mechanism. Sometimes the fear may be too much to let yourself feel it. Delve into your background with the counselor to locate that and when you deal with that your problems may just disappear. If on the other hand, the anger is genuine, trace it back to whenever from your past and deal with it. Many of us accumulate unexpressed feelings from the immediate or long past and we then become very fragile and vulnerable to even minor provocations and let out huge steam unmatched to the stimulus. This will make you an easy target by those who want to get a sick pleasure out of provoking you. You will then become a spectacle and a plaything in their hands. For this too, I recommend the help of a counselor. Exercise is an excellent outlet for the energy of the anger so that you will never loose your cool.

I am a 43yr old male married with a 5 year old child. I am suffering from depression from last 10months. Before that I was living a normal life. I am a working employee. And during this last 10 months I lost interest in life. I don't feel like doing anything. I stopped going out or meet friends and relatives. I just stay at home on weekends either continuously watching TV or browsing the net. My appetite has gone low. I have disturbed sleep. And feel very low in the mornings. I don't talk to my wife nor spend time with my daughter. I am always worried I may loose my job and my family would be destroyed due to my condition. Previously I had depression in 2009 it was for 6-7 months. I suffered depression for the first time in 1996 for a few months again in 2002 for more than an year. During that period I also tried committing suicide by consuming sleeping pills. I tried medication during all this bouts of depression but never completed the course. I don't find any particular reason for finding myself in dep, session. I have stopped allopathy medication due to side effects. I am on homeopathy medication from last 3 months. But I am not finding any difference. Rather I'm feeling more depressed. I am loosing hope.

You have been in treatment in fits and starts and so has your illness. The lack of consistency is one major problem in your approach in the treatment of this condition. The second big drawback is that you have not combined therapy with the medication. It is absolutely a must to work with a counselor and deal with so many other aspects f this condition that in isolation medication cannot be give you the total benefits of combined therapies. The third worst thing that you are doing is to regulate the medication on your own. That is very immature and can only lead to regular relapses. You have what is an anger-related depression and so there will be violence towards self in the form of suicide: you have become your worst enemy. This anger may be rooted in your childhood and it will help to investigate that and locate the genesis and treat the same with some therapy. In the meantime you can follow these simple rules too: Have a good night?s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber, nuts, avocado, exercise regularly, eat dark chocolate, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. I suggest you do the opposite of what this depression makes you feel like doing (actually, not doing): you will need to fight this condition. You must become active; stay upright during the daylight time; meet people; never sleep during the day, wake up by 6 am every day, play some active games, especially contact games, do physical exercises, talk to people and join some social clubs, attend Yoga classes etc. Watch sitcoms on TV or comedies and cheer yourself up. Go for excursions in groups, for outings, camps, conferences, and religious conventions. Get a pet dog and spend time training it, exercising it and relating to it. Expose yourself to some sunlight every day, at least 30 minutes but not in the scotching heat. Whatever happens, please incorporate these three important adaptations in your life: always be responsible, be respectful, and be functional. If you did these three, lots of things will go well in life. Please pray and have faith in God to alleviate your sufferings. Don?t wait for others to help. Use your own motivation, which might be at its lowest, but persevere and win this battle. Above all to be really happy, you need to live in love and for love: you have a wife and beautiful child. If they don?t experience love from you they may themselves lose the motivation and become depressed. In fact your child is already carrying your genes! Work with a counselor who is there only to facilitate you, all the hard word must come from you, and your cooperation with that person is very critical for your success. Be positive everyday and learn to be contended with what you have. Do some left brain exercises: it is the happy brain. Here are a few suggestions: shut your left nostril and breathe, move your eyes from right to left and vice versa for at least half a minute at a time, and do calisthenic exercises with some form of counting, regularly.

Dear, You must be able to understand Concentration, attention span, recollection and distraction. If you are able to watch a movie for two hours continuously, if you are able to play a game for an hour, then you do not have any concentration problems. You can't be attentive towards your studies because you are not interested in it. You are able to watch movie and play game because you are interested in it. Human cannot be attentive towards anything for more than 10 minutes. Then you should study in such a way that your attention is continued and make the subjects are interesting to you. Effective learning techniques should help you. Recollection depends on anxiety, stress and other physical and circumstantial factors. Distractions while studying are plentiful. You should be able to overcome distractions or avoid distractions. Please understand the above. Change your study style and attitude accordingly. Please post a private question to me and I will help you with "effective learning" techniques. Avocados, Beetroots, Blueberries, Broccoli. Celery, Coconut Oil, Dark Chocolate etc are good for improving concentration. Take care.

Good Morning ~ I am so glad you are seeking help for your wife. I am sure that if it were not for your your wife would have been lost due to paranoid schizophrenia. I also realize how hard it is to deal with someone with paranoid schizophrenia and realize that your problems as a care giver are immense. I believe after having read your description of the medications regimen and her symptoms, I am sure you need second opinion and you are at the right place. A small tweak in the medications that you use along with the help of a psychiatrist may make a large difference in your symptoms. I am sure you will also benefit from a paid appointment as it will not be in a public forum and you can get prescriptions for your wife if I believe she would need some medication changes.
