Social Phobia

People who have social phobia fear that others are watching and judging them and that they will be humiliated by their own actions. The fear can be broad, intense and persistent, or limited to just one situation, such as a fear of public speaking, according to the National Institute of Mental Health. Symptoms can include sweating, trembling, nausea and difficulty speaking.
