Claustrophobia Symptoms and Treatment
Claustrophobia (from Latin claustrum, "a shut in place") is the fear of having no escape, being in small spaces or rooms, or being confined. The fear is usually most intense in young children, and it is common in adults too. The fear is often triggered due to being locked in a dark room, closet, or even in a box, wearing clothes that are too tight on them, being trapped in an elevator due to blackout, being alone in a vehicle, or getting stuck in the holes or between bars of a fence.
Sufferers would avoid being in a small room (even when lit especially without windows), small spaces, vehicle, elevator, crowds, cellar, and caves. Since suffocation is commonly caused by limited amount of air available in small spaces, claustrophobics may often fear being suffocated as well.
Studies suggest that about 5-7% of all people suffer severe claustrophobia, and it is believe to be more commonly suffered by fat people.Not just fat people suffer from claustrophobia, skinny people to.
Claustrophobia is treated by gently facing their fears.

Radrook Admin: Yes, sooner or later this entire website will disappear with everything posted on it for lack of finding someone to take over when I croak. But it won't be because you folks are refusing to respond. That I can guarantee.

Radrook Admin: That's one reason why I stopped providing long insights into the chess games I play. It's like speaking to the wall.

Radrook Admin: Funny how I can have approx. 400 people at one point browsing, and not one of them wants to give feedback nor participate in any way manner or form. Not even a simple click with a like.

Radrook Admin: Funny how these discussion forums were all the rage once until Twitter and YouTube and other such discussion venues came along.

Radrook Admin: I wish visitors would say something instead of just reading and leaving in silence. Or at the least, at least have the courtesy to rate the material.

Radrook Admin: Thinking that doctors are beyond criticism no matter what is a cultural trait I do not share.

Radrook Admin: Reporting physician malpractice might save someone else from getting murdered.

Radrook Admin: Funny how nobody believes you when you describe physician malpractice until it happens to them-isn't it.
