Health Tip: Living With Social Phobia

Here are the common warning signs
(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.
