Agrophobia - a fear of being in a crowd? Anyone w/ PCD?

Recently I was referred to a specialist regarding the Post Concussion Syndrome I have suffered since a severe car accident last year. I was referred there to recieve another referral to Health School, which allows me a tutor once a week and work at home instead of being in a classroom.

He said I could also be suffering from agrophobia, a fear of being in a crowd.

I often find I am terrified of going to parties, etc because I don't want to deal with all the people.
I would rather stay at home and watch a movie with a person I know rather than go out.

Has anyone else been diagnosed with agrophobia or PCD?

I suffer from it when I have to leave the house to go anywhere. Having MRSA which leaves your immue system compromized, I am deathly afraid of getting any kind of germs. If someone sneezes around me, I go right into a panic attack and want to just run out of the store. I limit my outings as much as possible because of this fear. It is a horrible thing to have and I hate it. I fear of being on the vent for 10 out of 16 days in CCU like I was last December with double pneumonia and MRSA came to life. I never want to go here again!
