Algophobia (derived from the Greek algos meaning pain and phobos which means fear) is an exaggerated and irrational fear of pain or pain.


A person with algophobia can feel very pain, although for normal human size the pressure does not cause pain. Immediately, a patient with a phobia of pain will feel dizzy, nauseated, vomiting, trembling, heart palpitations or cold sweats, when he feels he will be hurt (such as being pinched or beaten).

Immediately, a patient with a phobia of pain will feel dizzy, nauseated, vomiting, trembling, heart palpitations or cold sweats, when he feels he will be hurt (such as being pinched or beaten).


It is believed that this happens because the patient is too excessive in predicting the pain / danger that will be obtained from a treatment, resulting in a shadow of pain that is very, very accompanied by fear.


However, the cause may also be due to environmental factors, an event in the past, and other accompanying psychological conditions. In an algophobic person, he will experience the psychological pain of the phobia, and this aggravates the pain and the phobia of the pain will be even greater. This phenomenon is also called the term cycling-phobia.

Phobia against pain can interfere with everyday life, because even some people are afraid of pain just from lifting an object or playing with children. Therapy that can be given to people with algophobia may be counseling, hypnosis, or sedation.
