Do you feel like the walls are closing in on you? Are you terrified of small spaces? Do you have mild - or severe - claustrophobia? If you answered "yes" to any of these questions, you definitely shouldn't look at the rest of this list. Claustrophobia is a type of anxiety disorder where the person experiencing it is EXTREMELY afraid of small spaces. People suffering from claustrophobia might experience panic attacks or intense feelings of terror when confined in a small space.   

Typically, claustrophobic people are afraid of being enclosed in small spaces because they're afraid of being restricted, or not having enough oxygen. Some of the worst places for a claustrophobic person to be are inside of an elevator, on an airplane, or in a small room. These pictures of tiny spaces will definitely trigger your claustrophobia, even if you don't have the disorder. We've put together photos of the most cramped spaces on earth for you to totally cringe at.
