Are you terrified of small spaces? Do you hate riding in elevators? Do you experience some form of anxiety or panic attacks when you're enclosed in a tiny room? If you've answered yes to any of these questions you probably suffer from some form of claustrophobia.

Claustrophobia is an irrational fear of being confined in a space with no escape, it doesn't necessarily have to be small.
