Unexpected fear: The cause could be your lack of familiarity about a situation or not being adequately prepared for whatever happened. Try discussing your fear with someone and see if your response has changed.Mif your fear is persistent then it would need closer evaluation.

Unique: It is always important to keep in mind that a psychological symptom may be caused by an underlying physical disorder. A physical disorder should be ruled out before undertaking a psychological course of treatment. Psychologically, the cause is unique to the individual and benefits from exploration in psychotherapy with a clinical psychologist.
