This kind of avoidance can sometimes lead to the development of an anxiety disorder called Agoraphobia. Agoraphobia usually develop over a period of many years but can strike suddenly as well.

Agoraphobia is a disabling condition in which the person fears places that are difficult to escape from or will cause them to be embarrassed. In extreme cases, the person may never or rarely leave their home. Agoraphobia is usually treated in connection with panic disorder as they normally are closely connected.(but not in all cases) People who suffer from panic attacks may also develop other phobias or OCD's. Although it is not know for sure,early treatment of panic attacks could in theory prevent Agoraphobia all together.
