If you have a fear of blood, you may think you are alone, but you might be surprised to find how common a fear or phobia it is. It can be known as hemophobia, haemophobia, hemaphobia or hematophobia. Essentially, fear of blood is an anxiety problem. If you suffer with blood phobia, you may know that it doesn’t make sense, but that still doesn’t prevent all of those symptoms happening at the thought of, or the sight of blood.
Common Symptoms Of Blood Phobia
Blood phobia is essentially an irrational fear. Many people experience dizziness, feelings of faintness, a sudden and rapid decrease in blood pressure, palpitations, dry mouth, sweaty palms, and feeling sickness or nausea.
Where Does Fear Of Blood Start?
For many people who experience a fear of blood, that fear or anxiety may have originally started many years before. Some people can pinpoint exactly when it started while others can’t. In many cases, it may have it’s roots in childhood or teenage years, when you might have experienced an accident, or witnessed someone else bleeding, or maybe it was a traumatic visit to the doctor, or to hospital. It could even start from someone else’s graphic description of something that happened to them. Whatever the reason, hypnosis is a great tool to uncover the memories and emotions that are at the very root of this problem.
Potentially Harmful Consequences
People who experience this fear or phobia of blood may avoid regular check-ups with their GP, they may avoid blood tests, they may refuse to have essential medical procedures and may even endanger their own health as a result.
