Social anxiety is one of the most common anxiety disorders and is the fear of scrutiny by others Specific social anxieties can include fear of public speaking, fear of using public restrooms, fear of ordering in a restaurant, fear of writing a check...among many others. People with generalized social anxiety have a phobia across many different situations involving scrutiny by others ( dinner parties, mingling, meeting new people, dating). Treatment usually involves medication management with SSRIs ( such as Prozac, Paxil, Zoloft, etc). combined with cognitive behavioral therapy. In addition, people might use benzodiazepines or beta blockers for specific events which cause anxiety. Regardless, this is a very treatable condition.
