Needle-phobia, or plainly put the fear of needles is more common than you might think. It’s the extreme fear of not just needles, but it leads to the fear of any procedure that might involve hypodermic needles. You might have heard it referred to as aichmophobia, belonephobia, or enetophobia as well.
Sadly, in turn, the fear of fainting itself can then lead to the development of a more standard phobic response. Needles produce fainting; fainting is anxiety provoking; and anxiety produces feelings of being light-headed, sweaty, and blurred vision, which mimic the symptoms of fainting.
As much as 30 percent of people suffer from a phobia called trypanophobia, which is a fear of needles and injections. Of those who have a fear of needles, at least 20 percent avoid medical treatment as a result. The fear of needles is both a learned and an inherited condition.
