Social anxiety: A majority of people experience some anxiety or shyness in social situations. Anxiety becomes problematic when it interferes with one's ability to manage day to day life - work, family, things you believe are important. Anxiety is treatable and does not mean one is mentally sick - it is a physiological and and behavioral condition. Ok to see primary care to begin evaluation and discuss options.
