logo Self-Assessment: Phobias | NHC

If you suspect that you might suffer from a specific phobia, answer the questions below. If most of your answers are Yes, consider consulting with a health care professional for a more in-depth assessment.

Are you troubled by the following?

  • Fear of places or situations where getting help or escape might be difficult, such as in a crowd or on a bridge?
  • Shortness of breath or a racing heart for no apparent reason in certain situations?
  • Persistent and unreasonable fear of an object or situation, such as flying, heights, animals, blood, etc.?
  • Fear that interferes with your daily life?
  • The inability to travel alone?

Having more than one illness at the same time can make it difficult to diagnose and treat the different conditions. Depression and substance abuse are among the conditions that occasionally complicate specific phobias and other anxiety disorders.

  • Have you experienced changes in sleeping or eating habits?
  • More days than not, do you feel sad or depressed?
  • More days than not, do you feel uninterested in life?
  • More days than not, do you feel worthless or guilty?

During the last year, has the use of alcohol or drugs…

  • resulted in your failure to fulfil responsibilities with work, school, or family?
  • placed you in a dangerous situation, such as driving a car under the influence?
  • resulted in your being arrested?
  • continued despite causing problems for you or your loved ones?
