Linonophobia refers to the fear of strings. It doesn’t have to be anything, like what’s seen in this image above. Any kind of strings really trigger this fear, you name it; guitar strings, balloon strings, etc. Symptoms typically include extreme anxiety, dread, shortness of breath, irregular heartbeat, sweating, dry mouth, shaking and so on.
