To help you out in deciding, I am enumerating some of the common symptoms faced by people suffering from asocial anxiety disorder that is said to be a new analogy in medical term as previously it was confused with Agoraphobia.
Actually, there are some physical and emotional symptoms but I will try to note them combined so that you do not get confused again in determining what are emotional and what physical symptoms are.
The first thing you get when you are in public is fear of losing control on yourself and you feel catastrophic.
You like to confine yourself in your own space and whenever someone tries to invade your personal space, tries to befriend with you, talk with you, or interact with you experience higher-level anxiety.
You fear parties and gatherings where you think you will attract lot of attention as you enter because the crowd will start judging you from your appearance starting from head to toe.
You fear to take part in social activities because you think you will fail the people’s expectations and they will laugh on you. Anxiety of being ridiculed is so immense that you not only avoid singing, dancing or playing but you even avoid speaking.
You always have difficulty in making eye contact when you are speaking with your colleagues or friends moreover you find it difficult to speak due to intense feeling of speaking something wrong and making fool of yourself.
In addition to all these symptoms if you find blushing, sweating, trembling or shaking, vigorous heartbeats, nausea, upset stomach, shaky voice, muscle tension, sold hands and feet as well confusion when you see crowd or pool of people then definitely these all are Social Anxiety Disorder Symptoms.
