How to deal with feelings of claustrophobia?
I wonder can anyone offer a little advice for a slightly (maybe not) unusual problem.
It is some 6 years since I was last visited Orlando. In the Autumn of this year I am returning with my wife and daughter.
Over the past 2/3 years I have become for some reason claustrophobic.This manifests itself in particularly smallish spaces like the rear seats of cars etc. My worry is of course that I will panic when going on some rides,particularly the rides with over head and shoulder harnesses.
Anyone got any advice as to how to tackle this issue.I will miss out in so much if I have to give these rides a miss.

Well, as for my own personal experience, I have been on every ride and coaster in Florida countless times and Great Adventure in New Jersey as well and have never had any problems. I'm still walking upright and feeling great. My best advice on this particular issue would be for you to visit your local doctor/ general practitioner, and have a physical exam. Then describe your concerns to him or her. You may even want to ask for a prescription for a mild anti-anxiety drug. Another good idea is to observe the guests who are just getting off the ride. If they look okay then there's a great chance that you'll be okay too. Best of luck to you!
Well I believe if you simply have some beer or maybe some nice Vodka you will be nice and relaxed for your vacation…
Have a great trip and thanks for vacationing in the USA….
Brian has some great advice.
Do not ride Mission: Space at Epcot. It will be your worst nightmare.
Brian You Speak Truth thats about all the clautrophobia that would be hell for you
except dudly do rights line sweet mama with a packed line
oh lord have mercy.
Be careful Mike. I assume your responding to Manny's post. The last thing we want is to resume the grammar wars of 2011-2012 that nearly divided our younger and older members.
Mission:Space has been the only ride where I have seen someone panicking on. Really research that one as it will more than likely prove to be the most challenging attraction in terms of claustrophobia.
James, anither gramer war would b aquosome!
Kidding, of course. We don't need that again.
Oh yes, I do remember this incident... ;)
Agreed My grammar in these past years suck but thats because im always busy so
lets not start another one.
I wasn't even noticing the grammar. That's a given with. I just couldn't make sense of the Dudley Do-Right line.
And, Dom, the correct spelling "awosome" :)
OK are we talking about folks Grandma’s or not?
Your Grandma is so fat….. hahahaha - OK I will not go there….
Have a great day Folks..
