Health Tip: Warning Signs of Social Anxiety Disorder
Having a normal conversation may seem nerve-wracking

By Diana Kohnle

(HealthDay News) -- Social anxiety disorder can make seemingly simple social engagements seem like a nightmare.

The U.S. National Institute on Mental Health says common symptoms of social anxiety disorder include:

  • Finding it difficult and nerve-wracking to have a conversation with other people.
  • Feeling extremely embarrassed and self-conscious in front of others.
  • Having constant fear of being judged by others.
  • Avoiding social activities or worrying for weeks before an event.
  • Having difficulty making friends and maintaining friendships.
  • Having physical symptoms such as trembling, blushing, sweating or feeling nauseous when around others.
