“I’m claustrophobic and wearing a mask is making me panic.” – does this sound like you?

With the COVID-19 pandemic, people have been talking more about their problems with wearing masks.

It can cause a combination of both psychological and physiological responses.

People with underlying anxiety disorders or claustrophobia can feel be particularly affected with emotional discomfort of wearing face masks.

Claustrophobia is a very painful phobia to live with and can become debilitating in everyday life. The disorder is one of the most common phobias of our time.

Claustrophobia is the fear of tight spaces and confinement. This phobia affects between 4 and 5% of the population and can become highly debilitating in everyday life.

The claustrophobic person has the impression of suffocating when in an elevator, confined to the subway, or any other small closed space. In extreme cases, this feeling of choking is accompanied by intense anxiety that can lead to a panic attack or the sensation of going crazy.

The causes of claustrophobia are difficult to define because they depend on each person’s history.
