Who has not ever been scared by a storm, a lightning strike or the loud sound of thunder.  It is most common to get hit when lightning strikes relatively close or when thunder rumbled loudly throughout the house.  However, there is a very common fear in childhood about lightning and thunder that is known as brontophobia.  It is nothing more than the fear of lightning and thunder that one has since childhood and that, if treated in time, may not take root into adulthood.  In this article, we are going to tell you in detail what brontophobia is, what symptoms it has and what can be done to treat it correctly.  What is Brontophobia? This is an anxiety disorder and is related to the phobic fear of storms.  Lightning and thunder also offer fear in the person.  For example, with the simple noise of thunder, the person with brontophobia may begin to tremble with fear, feel bad, feel overwhelmed, and generally feel bad.  It is a rather exaggerated, irrational and uncontrollable fear that develops into an anxiety response every time the person is exposed to these agents of nature.  As a consequence of the anxiety response, a repertoire of conducts, acts and different behaviors tends to originate that are carried out with the intention of avoiding this situation that produces fear in the person.  This person wants to flee from the situation that disturbs him as soon as possible.  Normally, brontophobia usually begins to manifest at an earlier age.  For children to be afraid of storms is completely natural.  However, if this fear intensifies and grows larger over time, it can transform into a true phobia.  If storms are common in the area where a person with brontophobia lives, this phobia can significantly interfere with the development of that person's life.  Imagine that a person with a fear of storms is in an area where there are 1 or 2 storms per month.  He will be continually exposed to unnecessary fears for the simple fact of not treating him well from a young age.  There are effective psychological treatments for people with this phobia.  Anxiety disorders To know that you have brontophobia, anxiety disorders are a good symptom to take into account.  The most direct symptom or consequence of brontophobia is to see that the person who suffers from it always tries to avoid or flee from the constant situations where he is afraid.  For example, simply by seeing some dark clouds, try to move to another side where there are none.  Just thinking that there is going to be a storm makes her very nervous, irritable and afraid.  These are the main characteristics of the person with brontophobia: • This person will have an excessive and disproportionate fear of the situation in which they are.  • The fear you have does not usually have much logic.  It is irrational or based on totally wrong ideas.  Ideas such as that lightning can strike inside the house, that the sound of thunder can break the windows, etc.  • Those who suffer from this fear cannot control it, even if they have someone by their side to support them and tell them that nothing bad is going to happen to them.  • Normally, the person with brontophobia tries desperately to flee from the situations where he will have said irrational fear.  • If this person does not undergo fear treatment, it can become permanent and cause worse consequences.  Symptoms of Brontophobia The first and most common is the anxiety disorder mentioned above.  This does not mean that all people will manifest the phobia in the same way.  Each person has their way of expressing themselves and we can see, in a generalized way, what the main symptoms are: Physical symptoms The fear and anxiety experienced usually give a series of changes and alterations in the body.  We find: • Increased heart rate.  • Headache.  • Greater respiration per unit of time.  • The person feels short of breath.  • Tension in the muscles.  • Increased sweating.  • Nausea or vomiting.  • Loss of consciousness in the worst cases.  Cognitive symptoms Brontophobia does not only have these physical symptoms where we can appreciate from outside the suffering of the person when we see that there is or is coming a storm.  There are also cognitive symptoms.  For example, the affected person may have uncontrollable ideas and little sense about the true danger posed by storms.  The consequences of a meteorological phenomenon are imagined in a catastrophic way.  Believe it or not, he is also afraid of losing his mind himself and not knowing how to act rationally.  For this reason, you always want to avoid situations where you are exposed to the storm.  Behavioral symptoms These two previous symptoms lead to behavior that is clearly different from other people.  The most indicative is to escape from said feared situation or flee when the stimulus is already appearing.  On the other hand, if the person cannot flee the storm, they will try to do all kinds of things so as not to think about it or try to forget that they are in a storm. How to treat it Brontophobia can be a wasting disease, especially if the person who suffers it is continuously exposed to these storms by a climate that favors it.  Cognitive and behavioral therapy achieves fantastic results in treating this phobia.  When you start a treatment, you try to carry out a series of techniques with the aim of eliminating the 3 symptoms that we have seen previously.  Through cognitive restructuring, irrational beliefs about storms can be modified so that the person can reduce the rest of the symptoms.  If a person knows that the storm is not dangerous at such a point, he can be calmer.  Science helps a lot on this.  On the other hand, negative news about lightning strikes in people causes even more fear in people.  During treatment, you have to know how to explain them but without omitting them or lying about it.
