I can't say this has been a major problem for me by any means, but I don't feel so crazy for having occasionally had a mild fear of the possibility that gravity might randomly fail one day anymore. I guess I haven't had that in years, though.

More serious for me is the fear of very large but enclosed spaces, such as gymnasiums and theaters - specifically of "falling" and landing on the ceiling. It doesn't stop me from entering such places, but can make me a little uncomfortable in them sometimes. I know it's completely illogical, but then so is SA...

Is there a name for a fear of falling up while indoors? Would that just be a variant of casadastraphobia?
