Claustrophobia

If you are suffering from Claustrophobia I am sure you have had the experience of having varying forms of Claustrophobia Symptoms. For many people these symptoms can be harsh enough to have an adverse effect on your quality of life. As the panic and fear seem to happen more and more frequently one of the common questions asked is “Will these Claustrophobia Symptoms be with me for the rest of my life?” The short answer is, yes they will unless you decide to do something about them.

It is important to understand what is taking place within your mind as you are having a Claustrophobia attack. In some sense, your subconscious mind is playing a cruel trick on you. Your subconscious has learned that by taking control of your emotions it is able to get you to flee the current situation. It is important to understand that you are having an emotional response to what is being perceived as a dangerous situation. Make no mistake about it, to YOU the panic and fear are real and that is why your subconscious has raised the danger “flag” and took control of your emotions.

The obvious cruel trick that is being played is that usually after the Claustrophobia attack most people can look back at the situation and acknowledge that there was no real danger to be worried about. This tends to send a very confusing message to most people because they know prior to being in the situation that there is no reason for worry and they can look back after an event and acknowledge there was no reason to worry..so what happened? Why was I so out of control?

The basic premise is one of “fear or flight”. When presented with a situation that your mind has marked as dangerous you are faced with two options: a) stay in the situation and work through the fear or b) flee the situation and get away from the perceived danger as soon as possible. You have proved to your brain that the preferred choice is to “flee” the situation.
