Social Anxiety Symptoms
Many people become nervous or self-conscious on certain occasions, but those who suffer with social anxiety often experience these feelings more often than normal, and in most cases the feeling is intense and unbearable. The common symptoms include fear of embarrassment, which is often very intense. In some cases, the person will go to great lengths to avoid situations that cause these feelings.
People with social anxiety may intensely worry for days, weeks or months before social situations occur. They express an extreme fear of being judged or watched by others, particularly people unknown to them. They fear that they may humiliate or embarrass themselves. They fear that others may notice they are nervous. They avoid social situations to an extent that limits their activities and often disrupts their lives.
Signs and symptoms include tightness in the chest or pounding of the heart, shaky voice, trembling or shaking, rapid breathing, muscle tension, blushing, sweating or hot flashes, dizziness or feeling faint, twitching, clammy hands, dry mouth, upset stomach or nausea.
