Do You Have Social Phobia?

When Should I Talk to My Doctor About Social Phobia?

First, it's important to know that you are not abnormal if you have social phobia. Many people suffer with social phobia, and it is treatable. If you have unusually high anxiety and fear about social situations, talk openly with your doctor about treatment. If left untreated, social phobia may lead to depression, drug or alcohol problems, school or work problems, and a poor quality of life.
