Computer Phobia: Logizomechanophobia

By Deane Barker on December 3, 2003

Computer Phobia: Who knew it had an actual name? My mother-in-law will be thrilled.

Known by a number of names Logizomechanophobia and Fear of Computers being the most common, the problem often significantly impacts the quality of life. It can cause panic attacks and keep people apart from loved ones and business associates. Symptoms typically include shortness of breath, rapid breathing, irregular heartbeat, sweating, nausea, and overall feelings of dread, although everyone experiences computer phobia in their own way and may have different symptoms.
