Fear of Reversed Gravity

Barophobia is an overwhelming, irrational fear of gravity. The barophobic individual may have a completely distorted view of the force and consistency of gravitational pull. Individuals coping with this phobia may fear that they will be crushed by the force of gravity were it to become too great. On the other end of this spectrum, there are barophobic individuals who may fear that gravity could reverse itself and that they will be doomed to live upside down.
