Based on your answers, you may have agoraphobia without panic disorder.
Agoraphobia is the fear of any place where it might be difficult to escape -- like being in a theater or a crowded mall, or traveling on a bus or an airplane. People with agoraphobia avoid such situations to avoid the anxiety that goes with them. Fortunately, the anxiety never reaches the level of panic.
Agoraphobia is a very treatable illness. The symptoms or discomfort may improve or be eliminated by psychotherapy alone, or with the addition of antianxiety medication.
