Health Tip: Living With Social Phobia

(HealthDay News) -- It's common to get a bit anxious before a big event, but someone with social phobia gets extremely nervous about a job interview, reunion or giving a speech.

The American Academy of Family Physicians says possible symptoms of social phobia include:

  • Being very afraid of judgment or embarrassment in front of others.

  • Feeling that all others are more capable and confident than you are.

  • Blushing and sweating when faced with a social situation.

  • Feeling nauseous, shaking or trembling before or during a social situation.

  • Having a hard time speaking or making eye contact with others.

  • Continuing to worry after an event about what people thought.
