Exclamation Phobia

For a long time I have suffered from Panic/Anxiety Disorder. I never really thought that I had major phobias until I came to the realization last night that I honestly do have one, and I never knew it effected my life.

I have always been afraid that if I were to get into a situation that I was being raped, assulted, ext. that I would try and talk but no words would come out of my mouth. I would try and scream but I would be to shocked to be able to say ANYTHING, not even a scream for help.

I often have dreams like this and I wake up in complete panic. I avoid places that this might happen and I am extra cautious and when I'm in a situation where I would think this could happen I freak out right off the bat.

So, here are my two questions. Does this happen to anyone else or am I the only one? Does anybody know the name of this Phobia?
Thank You!

yes!!! i have had those dreams
my dreams are like though ive got a killer with a knife running at me but i cant run away and no matter how much i yell nothing comes out of my mouth and people ignore me on the street because im the only one who can see him
however i dont avoid situations where its happened in my dreams, sometimes i am cautious but generally im not.
