It sounds like panic attacks to me. I didn't find Effexor to be very effective for anxiety. The fear of going out is called anticipatory anxiety, and it all becomes a vicious cycle.
In addition to medications you might want to see a cognitive behavior therapist and read "The Anxiety and Phobia Workbook". At least you'll find out that you are far from alone.
