Does anyone else go through this with Agoraphobia?

Starting last year in August I have been slowly developing Agoraphobia and I thought it was something physically wrong because I would throw up constantly. When I go into some public situations like restaurants and crowded places I began to get really nervous because I am scared I will vomit in public. I become nauseous sweating and slight shaking, I have been able to control it sometimes by exercising constantly to burn all my energy up but I can't seem to get over this. I come from a family that has panic disorders yet they have no idea how to help me. When I try to explain they don't fully understand, and just tell me I need to push myself and get over this by going into public with friends. They dont understand the intense fear I go through and how much of a physical toll it actually takes out of me. I just don't want to waste my life with this fear I need to get over it but I am failing I need help. Does anyone have any advice to help me overcome this?

I too am agoraphobic.. Sometimes its barely noticeable and others it's pretty rough.. I hate doing some stuff but I do it anyway because maybe if I keep pushing I'll get back so some normality..

I too have similar anxiety... I am scared of experiencing symptoms in public. I exercise but dont use all of your energy, this causes more tension in my experience. As for social situations, I am currently in the middle of treatment. My psychologist has me doing gradual exposure therapy. I started going to public places with someone else then by myself. At first, I went to places I knew wouldnt be as crowded like the library then as my symptoms decreased, I began going to more stimulating places. Ive have some set backs but overall am making progress.
