In brief: Absolutely
Nervousness when speaking in front of a group is very common.
It's sometimes called "stage fright". If it is interfering with life in a major way, consider learning some strategies to manage the problem. Some people benefit from joining a toastmasters club, some use self-help tips available online, others contact a clinical psychologist to learn anxiety or stress management techniques.
