Re: What symptoms do you get with social anxiety?

do you feel any other physical symptoms such as lightheadedness, nausea, rapid heart beating, chills when you're hot etc...?

Re: What symptoms do you get with social anxiety?

I dont get as many physical symptoms as i do mentally. Yes my heart beats very fast and i feel very warm and constantly trying to calm down

physical symptoms are very common in social situations, thats nothing to worry about
my anxiety has been reduced alot with anti depressents and keeping a diary of my thoughts and reading them back to myself, it gives me a clear insight into how im feeling at stages and working out what triggers my anxiety the most.
just a thought
