Acrophobia: Fear of Heights
Many of us are terrified when exposed to heights, and also when there is little or no protection. But in extreme cases, a person may suffer from Acrophobia – a very strong fear of heights.
Acrophobics can suffer from panic attacks when they are placed on heights, and may get very restless if not relieved immediately. Women tend to suffer from the fear of heights more than men. This fear can lead to anxiety attacks and avoidance of high places. (Via)
