Fear Of The Dark-Nyctophobia covers the causes, signs, symptoms and treatment, along with what you can do about this condition.

Fear Of The Dark-Nyctophobia

Causes Of Nyctophobia:

Normally a problem in childhood, where we haven't learned when we're safe.  Adult Nyctophobia is often usually an indication we haven't faced that fear and probably have had some bad experiences in the dark.

Signs And Symptoms Of Nyctophobia:

While most of us have some fear of the dark, especially during childhood, our fears usually don't rise to the level of a phobia.  Rational fear of the dark is good for us, giving us caution and alertness for the natural dangers, like from tripping or being attacked by a nocturnal animal.  The extreme and irrational anxiety response to darkness where we know we are safe, like in our bedroom, is Nyctophobia.  Symptoms include disorientation, loss of control, nausea, sweatiness...even panic attacks. 

Treatment Of Nyctophobia:

Anxiety medication is often prescribed for cases where frequent panic attacks and lose of sleep occur.  Please make sure any medicine is accompanied by counseling to eventually lessen the reaction and the need for medicine.

What You Can Do About Nyctophobia:

Facing your fears is the best home therapy for children and adults.  Once we know there are no dangers from darkness alone, our fears will return to a more rational level.  Nightlights are often used to relieve the fear for children and adults.

Total Healing:

Mental Health conditions can be limiting and very painful.  There are no guaranteed cures or quick fixes, whether medicine, nutrition, herbs or anything else.  Complete healing is possible...including mind, body and spirit...from God.  If you want God's help with this for any problem, go to healing from God.
