Can you genuinely have more than one fear?

It’s something I’ve been asking myself and I was wondering if there are other people who think they fear more than one thing or have more than one phobia.

I don't see why not. There's an endless list of fears humans suffer from.

I have a fear of water, needles, hospitals, bugs, sharks. It is indeed possible.

I have multiple fears as well but I remember reading an article stating that humans can only really have one real phobia so it left me thinking

I do not believe that article. I have seen many people with multiple fears.

Another thing I was wondering was: can people have more than one fear that causes them panic attack, anxiety, anxiety attacks, etc? Again, the article said no (don’t know why it’s so stuck in my mind) so it made me think that all the other fears that don’t cause me to have anxiety attacks are just minor and insignificant

I believe they can. I have read members on hear having fears that cause them to have panic and anxiety.
