    Underground as in, for example, a cave, mine, tunnel (not claustraphobia)

    There is NO phobia for being underground. The next closest phobia to that is the fear of dirt called rupophobia. As a miner myself for 30 yrs before retirement, however many miners DO suffer from claustraphobia but it can be treated.
