Claustrophobia is the illogical concern of restricted spaces. People affected by claustrophobia will typically head out of their way to stay clear of confined spaces, such as lifts, passages, tube trains and public commodes. Some people with claustrophobia experience mild stress and anxiety when in a confined space, while others have serious stress and anxiety or a panic attack. It's approximated around 10% of the UK population are affected by claustrophobia throughout their lifetime. Many different circumstances or sensations can set off claustrophobia. If you have felt nervous in the last 6 months about remaining in a constrained space or crowded place, or you have stayed clear of these scenarios for this reason, it's likely that you're affected by claustrophobia. If you have claustrophobia and require to have an MRI check, let the staff at the healthcare facility know before the day of your visit. In some cases, you might have the ability to attend upright or open MRI centre, made for people with extreme MRI stress and anxiety.
