Dextrophobia: The Fear of Objects to the Right Side of the Body

Dextrophobia is the abnormal and persistent fear of objects at the right side of the body.  This phobia is closely related to Levophobia, the fear of things to the left side of the body.
A phobia is a strong, persistent fear of situations, objects, activities or persons.  The main symptom is an excessive and unreasonable desire to avoid the feared subject. Other phobia symptoms include shortness of breath, irregular heartbeat, sweating, nausea, and an overall feeling of dread.  Phobias are the most common form of anxiety disorders.
