Haphephobia or Haptephobia – Fear of being touched

Harpaxophobia is usually caused by an intense destructive experience out of your past. But your mind may also create that worry seemingly without basis. The secret is digging down to the source and changing negative associations with positive ones. Those at greatest risk include:

People with a common tendency towards fear and anxiety
People characterised as excessive strung
People affected by adrenal insufficiency

Symptoms of Harpaxophobia: Test & Diagnosis

We could attempt to further enhance our credibility with some complicated test, but it’s really pretty simple: If this concern is having a major negative impact in your life, it
s time to do one thing about it.

Does the thought of being robbed make you nauseous? Does it trigger a dry mouth and clammy hands? Does your heart really feel like it should pound proper out of your chest? Do your legs flip to rubber bands?

Harpaxophobia Drugs & Medication

We don’t encourage the usage of drugs and medicine because we see them as a mask. They could help you deal with your harpaxophobia, but they don’t actually help you overcome it.
No drug has ever been developed particularly for harpaxophobia, and none can ever cure the root cause, only suppress the symptoms. And with all of the uncertainty surrounding potential aspect effects it’s hard to justify popping a prescription as a healthy solution.
