Agoraphobia: The Fear of Situations in which Escape is Difficult

In some cases, this relates to a fear of ‘open spaces.’ This fear can take place anywhere; at home, in places of worship, crowded malls, etc. Usually this phobia deepens when a person starts avoiding spaces or situations like driving, shopping, crowded places, and traveling – essentially all spaces that he or she perceives to be part of his/her phobia.
 
Agoraphobia arises from an internal anxiety condition that becomes so intense that the suffering individual fears going anywhere, especially to places where these feelings of panic originated. Once these panic attacks have started, they are followed by ongoing stress, even when other obvious symptoms diminish. (Via)
