There are different kinds of phobias: Phobia against fear of heights is termed acrophobia, fear of public places is termed as agoraphobia, and claustrophobia is the fear of being in closed places. If one is extremely self-conscious in everyday social situations, one could have a social phobia. Other common phobias involve fear of tunnels, highway driving, water, flying, animals and blood. Symptoms of phobias include: anxiety, nausea, vomiting, palpitations, shortness of breath, trembling, upset stomach and sweating
