    Over the past several years I have become claustrophobic. Sometimes even when driving if the seat belt rides up to my neck, sometimes in bed. I spend almost all of my waking hours outside. Anyone know of something to help it stop?

    That sounds like it's very bothersome. I have problems with small places, but not like you are describing. There are of course medications, like xanax, and the like. But they are only temporary, and short-lived. You can try breathing excersises, and guided imagery-just not when you're driving of course. It's worth a try...

    I also have claustrophobia; even wearing a polo neck jumper can sometimes set it off. I've had six sessions of hypnotherapy which helped enormously and I also use EFT (emotional freedom technique) which helps to keep it under control.
