What exactly happens when people have arachnophobia?

The symptoms of arachnophobia are many and varied. They differ from person to person. However, one thing that is clear and obvious for all the people who suffer from arachnophobia is that they go into a state of shock when they see spiders. A mere picture a spider would make this people panic very much.
These people would sweat profusely, cry and scream, their hearts beat faster and even some of them suffer serious heart problems. People who suffer from arachnophobia are often restless when they stay in unfamiliar places and will only calm down when they are absolutely sure that the place is spider free.
