Agoraphobia and Marijuana Information: Treat Agoraphobia With Cannabis

Agoraphobia is a type of anxiety disorder in which you fear and often avoid places or situations that might cause you to panic and make you feel trapped, helpless or embarrassed.

With agoraphobia, you fear an actual or anticipated situation, such as using public transportation, being in open or enclosed spaces, standing in line or being in a crowd. The anxiety is caused by fear that there’s no easy way to escape or seek help if intense anxiety develops. Most people who have agoraphobia develop it after having one or more panic attacks, causing them to fear another attack and avoid the place where it occurred.

Typical agoraphobia symptoms include:

  • Fear of being alone in any situation
  • Fear of being in crowded places
  • Fear of losing control in a public place
  • Fear of being in places where it may be hard to leave, such as an elevator or train
  • Inability to leave your home or only able to leave it if someone else goes with you
  • Sense of helplessness
  • Overdependence on others

In addition, you may have signs and symptoms of a panic attack, such as:

  • Rapid heart rate
  • Excessive sweating
  • Trouble breathing
  • Chest pain or pressure
  • Lightheadedness or dizziness
