Dizziness When You See A Lot Of People Or Things?
Afternoon,. I want to ask. I read an article about feeling dizzy when you see a crowd that could be a sign of social phobia. What I want to ask, is the condition of someone who feels dizzy when in the library seeing the books lined up on the shelves also includes the effect of a phobia? But is there really a phobia of libraries? Thank you,.
Phobias are feelings of excessive fear of certain situations or specific objects.
Phobias are typically described as an uncontrollable fear accompanied by physical symptoms such as cold sweats, shortness of breath/heavy breath, cold sweats, body shaking, stomach pain and other physical complaints that are usually very disturbing to a person.
Phobias are actually part of the symptoms of anxiety disorders. Types of phobias are very diverse situations and objects, depending on the trauma / bad experience that has been experienced by a person.
When entering the library, a row of tall cabinets filled with books can trigger anxiety if someone has had a bad experience being in a narrow space or being crushed by a cupboard. It is very individual.
Dizziness when entering the library room must be distinguished from dizziness triggered by certain physical conditions. Symptoms of anxiety are usually not just one but usually several experienced at one time when a person is faced with a certain situation/object.
If you can't control your feelings of anxiety and it always occurs when you enter a room full of bookshelves, you should consult your complaint with a Psychiatrist.
The doctor will conduct a careful mental examination through detailed questions and answers. If needed, the doctor will perform behavioral and cognitive therapy and use psychotropic drugs if behavioral therapy cannot overcome your mental problems. Psychotropic drugs are given only on doctor's instructions and are used for a short period of time.
When you feel anxious and have physical symptoms that are difficult to control, you should find a large quiet place where you can sit comfortably. Close your eyes and try to practice relaxation techniques until the fear/anxiety subsides.
