fear of fainting in public

hi i have a fear of leaving the house because i start thinking i am going to faint and then i actually start feeling anxious and my senses react like i am going to faint which i don't but i don't go out and when i do i am so afraid that i get exhausted fighting to control my thoughts.

it started one day at the market when i felt like i was about to faint and i rushed to sit down. i didn't faint because i fought the feeling any way i can. i had my baby with me. after that every time i go out i feel the same, but once i get back inside the house or somewhere, where i can sit i feel fine.

My life has really changed i don't go out except for my sons school and i don't walk i take a taxi to the school and have them return for me infront of the school and back to my door...i have tried many things. i went to doctors and nothing works. i would really like to get back my life can any one give me some insight on my situation and what i can do to help.

very grateful
