Health Tip: Symptoms of a Social Phobia

(HealthDay News) -- A social phobia occurs when a person has unusually high anxiety before a social situation, such as going to a party, giving a speech, or going to a job interview.

It may include some or all of these physical symptoms, says the American Academy of Family Physicians:

  • Blushing.
  • Sweating.
  • Feeling nauseous.
  • Trembling or shaking.
  • Having trouble talking to or making eye contact with another person.

If you have these symptoms, a doctor should evaluate you for a social phobia. The physician can also recommend treatment options, including medication and/or behavioral therapy.
