I'm Just Me

Has anyone else developed irrational fears due to abuse and trauma, even from events you can't really recall?

Since about the age of 14/15 I've had issues with particular sounds, namely anything that I consider makes a noise similar to if you stir up mayonaise. I have NO idea why I freak out. I didn't realize how bad it got until last night. My friend was playing with a squishy ball thing and it made that noise and I started having a panic attack so close to tears due to that noise. I can't figure out why and it's bugging me. Who has a fear of the sound of mayonaise!? Sheesh. I huge fear of going to the dentist and I figured out why by connecting the dots after I read part of a recovery book. Anyway, I just wanted to know if I was alone in this odd irrational fear thing? Including places, objects, etc.
