Patient Comments: Phobias - Symptoms

What were the symptoms of your phobia(s)?

Comment from: Mae, 35-44 Female (Patient) Published: November 01

I have agoraphobia, panic attacks, epilepsy and migraines. My agoraphobia keeps me from attending parent teacher conferences. I have left grocery stores with a full cart, because I am having a panic attack. The fluorescent lighting is going in and out, needs to be changed; it is making me sick to my stomach. I think I am going to have a seizure. When I get home I barely get in the door, and have a grand mal seizure.
