look up social anxiety disorder on the net
the antidepressant paxil is being promoted for this which ironically means many more docs will soon know of it and be diagnosing it, however, IMO some other antidepressant would be better as paxil (paroxetine) is simply 1 of many prozac type meds, but it does have a reputation of being unusually difficult to eventually stop

are your heart pills beta blockers? ask a pharmacist, if so they will help also with the physical anxiety and panic attack problems but the dose may need adjustment, any valium type med would also help a lot for social occasions if you can get any, both go well together

read up about panic attacks on the net, although unpleasant, they cant harm you :jester:
