What Is Agoraphobia

For certain individuals, venturing out from home can make them panice. Deciphered from Greek as “fear of crowds,” agoraphobia means to a dread of any spot where departure might be troublesome, including enormous open spaces or zones with swarms, just as different methods for movement.

Individuals with agoraphobia may stay away from circumstances, for example, being separated from everyone else outside of the home, going in a vehicle, transport, or plane, being in a jam-packed region, being in encased spaces, for example, shops and films, or being on an extension or in a lift.

Approximately 1.7 percent of adolescents and adults are diagnosed with agoraphobia, while women are twice as likely as men to experience agoraphobia.
