Question

Proper name for fear of being held down? how do i get over it?

(Ex 1: Whenever anyone tries to restrain me or hold me down, even when simply tickling me, I will kick and scream and start bawling, and i cant help it)

(Ex 2: When I went to a church all-night jam, they had entertainment hired, including a guy who could get out of a strength jacket. I couldn't breathe and was shaking, sweating and having a panic attack, i had to leave the auditorium. Even now typing it i feel nauseated and i'm trembling)

I think I know what past experience caused the fear, but what is it called? And if you know, how can I get over the fear? And please don't answer if you don't have actual advice or an answer. Thank you very much(:
