Social Anxiety Disorder
Commonly called social phobia, this disorder is the extreme fear of being scrutinized and judged by others in everyday social or performance situations. People with social anxiety disorder know that their fears are excessive or unreasonable, but they are unable to overcome them. They worry about doing something embarrassing, and these situations typically cause great anxiety:
making a phone call
speaking in public
eating in front of others
Physical symptoms of social anxiety disorder may include:
nausea or other abdominal distress
shortness of breath
dizziness or lightheadedness
feelings of detachment
loss of self-control
