Fear of Needles Swindon

Therapy for the Fear of Needles

Trypanophobia is the fear of needles. It is a type of specific phobia, which is an anxiety disorder that is characterised by a persistent and excessive fear of a specific object or situation. People with trypanophobia may experience a range of physical and emotional symptoms when they encounter needles, such as:

  • Sweating
  • Trembling
  • Rapid heartbeat
  • Shortness of breath
  • Nausea
  • Dizziness
  • Feeling faint
  • Panic attacks
  • Fear of being injected
  • Fear of pain
  • Fear of infection

Trypanophobia is a relatively common phobia. It is estimated that up to 25% of adults have some degree of fear of needles.

There are a number of reasons why people might develop trypanophobia. Some people may have had a negative experience with needles in the past, such as being injured by a needle or having a bad reaction to a vaccine. Others may have learned to fear needles from their parents or other caregivers.

Trypanophobia can have a significant impact on a person's life. It can prevent people from getting necessary medical care, such as vaccinations or blood tests.
