History and Symptoms

  • Being exposed to the feared object, or even thinking about being exposed to it causes an anxiety reaction.
  • The person avoids situations in which contact with the feared object or animal may occur. For example, avoiding driving through tunnels, if tunnels are the subject of the phobia. This type of avoidance can interfere with job and social functioning.
  • The person may feel weak or cowardly and lose self-esteem when avoiding the object of the phobia.
