Does Anyone Experience Issues With Heights?

I am just curious as many people have problems with Heights.  What causes this and do any of you have this problem?

I would also be curious to know this.    I am 56 and, in recent years, have found increased difficulty in changing lightbulbs which necessitate me standing on anything.    When I first moved into this terraced house in 1978 I was even able to put a bulb in the light at the top of the stairs!   Fortunately, the last time I was able to do this the energy saving bulbs were coming in during the 1980s - I put one in, thankfully, as they were also sold as "long lasting" bulbs which was good news to me - it has lasted absolutely ages - decades in fact!

Is the problem of not being able to stand on anything to do with ears or blood circulation?  I am fine up high if I am in an enclosed space.    If I looked out of a window of the top floor of a tower block I would be fine but if I had to go on the roof of even a lower building it would be extremely difficult for me to look over it!
