Does anyone here have social anxiety?

I think I do. I get so anxious around people sometimes for no reason.
I'll be having a conversation with someone or be sitting in a lecture and will all of a sudden get insanely anxious.-To the extent that i'll literally start shaking and my palms start sweating like crazy. My pulse also go's racing and I have to leave the room. I cant control it.
Also, when i'm walking in a shopping mall it happens as well. One moment i'm fine and the next I get so anxious around all those people.. I know its irrational-but I cant control it.
How do I stop this shi*? Ive been like that since primary school.

i used to be really shy but not to this extent. the biggest help to me was to remember that acting confident gets ppl to think that youre a confident person. when this happens i was always in a comfortable place and truly became confident, not just pretending.

i get that sometimes, but not as bad as you. i'm pretty shy and whenever i wanna say something to a stranger i always wanna say it, but can't for some reason. as if something is holding me back

Its not that Im anxious all the time. But it just happens suddenly sometimes. Its brought on by being around people.
Like, I can be fine at a party for hours, and then suddenly get anxious

My social anxiety is the biggest thing holding me back. No job, no girlfriend, no friends, no car, all because I need the initiative. Though, I'm going to college and happy about that.

I have social anxiety (that was diagnosed by a doctor) to the point I used to puke every morning because I had to go to school and I was so nervous..

Just be glad it's shaking and sweaty palms and not getting sick.
#18
I used to have it pretty bad. Now it's not so bad, but I still get really nervous around people I don't know at all and when I'm with 1 person I know.

Occasionaly I do get a little anxious. For me, it's mostly when I have to talk to a group of people and some of them I don't even know that well. I'm good with one on one conversations, but when you start adding 3 or 4 people, I do tend to get a little anxious.

That must have been brutal, I find it hard to deal with just having the whole shaking, sweaty palms, etc. stuff.

I don't have many problems with people I know well, but whenever I meet someone new I get really anxious and sweat like crazy. I find it's easier to deal with talking one on one with a new person, but being in a group of new people is almost unbearable.

I don't have the hatred for every new person I see, but some just piss me off for some reason(usually if they come across as cocky, but then again, who doesn't hate cocky people?)

This is how it is for me, too. I don't do well with meeting new people unless it's one on one.

I have some social anxiety, mainly because of my lonely, hermit lifestyle . I manage to break out of it when I was 19, I worked in a sales job which forced me to try and talk to people. It worked wonders but once I quit that job, I retreated back into my shell.

I get it too. People will even notice that my hand starts shaking when I'm talking to a lot of people, really sucks.

Neil Young has said that he's like that too. It has nothing to do with being shy, our brain just works that way.

How do you solve it? Same way as me.
