← Back to: List of phobias


Algophobia (from álgos, Greek for "pain") is the fear of pain. Pain is an unpleasant sensation caused by injury or illness and is also a mental suffering that can lead to this fear trigger. Algophobes who suffered pain would get anxiety attacks and want them go away immediately by taking pain killers. Unlike most other phobias that are most common in young children, algophobia is much more common in elderly people. Algophobia can be treated with behavioral therapy, hypnotherapy and anti-anxiety medication.
