Agoraphobia

Agoraphobia involves anxiety about being in places or situations from which escape might be difficult, embarrassing, or in which help may not be available in the event of having an unexpected or situationally predisposed Panic Attack (or panic-like symptoms). Agoraphobic fears typically involve characteristic clusters of situations that include being outside the home alone, being in a crowd or standing in a line, being on a bridge, and traveling in a bus, train, or automobile.
