I've got nosocomephobia. Within minutes of being informed that i need to visit the A+E department or need to attend an appointment. I get a tight chest, feel tearful, heart palpatations, unable to speak ( like i have had a stroke).my eyesight goes although my hearing intensifies, eventually I pass out and remain unconcious for several minutes. usually waking up with the crash team in attendence.

once concious again the whole episode can easily repeat itself. usually when the attending medics, request full blood counts and possible admission.

The most annoying factor is that I have no control over my action, many people think its funny that a grown man can be this way.....and especially when they enquire as to my profession ( A mental health nurse, ) who treats anxiety related problems that others have on a daily basis.
