Is social anxiety negatively affecting your relationships and causing you to avoid social interactions?

Many people feel anxious in social situations, where they feel they might be judged or embarrassed. Agoraphobia is a more extreme form of social anxiety where people fear having an anxiety or panic attack around other people and losing control of their body and emotions. No matter what kind of social anxiety you are experiencing, you’ll be glad to know that there is help available.

Wherever you are located in Rhode Island from Cranston to Woonsocket or even Providence, or anywhere else nearby, Mental Health Match can help you easily find an experienced therapist or counselor who best meets your needs.

Symptoms of Social Anxiety Disorder

If you’re not sure whether you are dealing with social anxiety, this section will help. It is very normal to feel nervous in some social situations, but people with social anxiety disorder feel a great sense of fear and self-consciousness in everyday interactions, like working around coworkers, going to the store, or riding public transportation.

Here are some symptoms you may experience in everyday social situations if you have social anxiety:

  • Trembling, shaking, or tense muscles
  • Quick shallow breaths that leave you feeling lightheaded
  • An upset stomach or nausea
  • A racing heart

These symptoms may be felt in anticipation of a social situation, during, or afterward. If you experience symptoms like these, you could benefit from seeing a therapist.

If you think you may be suffering from social anxiety, read licensed therapist Alexandra Lambeth’s tips for coping with irrational thoughts, fear, and anxiety.
