Step 4: Read and complete the decision guide to learn more about your symptoms.
Some people never have typical panic attacks, but they're uncomfortable or anxious when in certain settings. They might always take stairs to avoid using an elevator or take a longer route to avoid driving through a tunnel.
The fear is not caused by having to perform or socialize.
Please tell us whether there are uncomfortable settings you avoid. (Anxiety about performance and being in social situations are addressed in separate questions.)
Even if you don't get severe anxiety attacks, are you afraid of getting stuck somewhere you can't escape. Do you avoid those situations because you fear becoming anxious (for example, being outside, in a crowd, on a bridge, bus, train or airplane)?
