B   Social Phobia

The preclusive concern of the social phobias is being seen or watched. People with social phobias would avoid being noticed in the public or performing a task while being watched.

Simple Phobia is the fear of a specific object or situation such as fear of darkness, heights, spiders, butterflies, or disease. The phobia's response is extreme.

Agoraphobia is the fear of the marketplace. Often, a panic attack accompanies the individual when he/she is in a crowd, in an open space, when traveling, or even on the street. A typical symptom during the panic disorder attack is shortness of breath, heart palpitations, profuse sweating, dizziness, and wild fear of dying or going crazy.

Almost everyone would show some Post-traumatic stress disorder after military combat, rape, being held hostage, captivity in a concentration camp or natural disasters. The symptoms of PTSD include numbness to outside events or withdrawal from such events; cognitive and emotional symptoms such as memory impairment, feelings of guilt, inability to concentrate, and exaggerated alarming response; and reliving the event through nightmares or sharp periodic recollections or feelings of the event.
