Agoraphobia is an anxiety disorder which primarily consists of the alarm of experiencing a difficult or embarrassing situation from which the sufferer cannot escape.

People next to agoraphobia may experience panic attacks surrounded by situations where they touch trapped, insecure, out of control, or too far from their personal comfort zone. In severe cases, an agoraphobic may be confined not simply to their home, but to one or two rooms, and they may even become bed-bound, or a recluse.
Acrophobia? Its the suspicion of heights. I have it BAD when I was younger. I get over it when my cousin took me to Cedar Point and made me ride Magnum XL 200 with her. Then I go bungee jumping. Now I LOVE height!!
Has your mom been to a doctor? That is the first step.She may call for to be put on some type of medication to control it. Other than that, the only passageway that I can suggest is that she is going to have to obverse her fears head on. I needed the meds and I used to not be capable of go on the front porch. I basically retired from an office living after 20 years of being out and almost and it was the pills that help me. I could not do it alone. Good luck.
