How can I find out that I have SA?

There are certain behavioural patterns that you might have recognized with yourself or maybe others thave mentioned to you which could indicate that you have SA or a form of shyness. Obviously the strength can vary from mild to severe depending on your personal experience and comfort.

Some of the emotional stress that someone with social anxiety would experience would be triggered through the following situations:

  • Being watched

  • Being the center of attention

  • Meeting other people

  • Being teased or criticized

  • Meetings with authority figures

  • These are just a few examples

If you feel uncomfortable in these kind of situations or have tried or try to avoid them whenever you can, it is very likely you have a form of SA.

The physical symtoms to social anxiety may include racing heart, turning red or blushing, excessive sweating, dry throat and mouth, trembling,intense fear, shyness, swallowing with difficulty, and muscle twitches. It is possible that under circumstances simply being nervous can cause some of these emotions, however, if they occur in a pattern and on a regular basis then you are one of those that suffer from a form of Social Anxiety.
