Do I have claustrophobia If I am not afraid to ride in trains, elevators, or airplanes, but I am afraid to enter the small, confined spaces in aircraft wings? These are for access to the fuel tanks, and are called fuel cells. As you can guess, I am an aircraft mechanic. I had severe asthma attacks when I had to work in the fuel cells with a half face respirator. I am afraid to enter again.

Please help
