  • Social Anxiety explained by Fort Lauderdale Psychologist

    Social anxiety is a form of anxiety that presents when one has fear of being judged, ridiculed or embarrassed. The fear is irrational and sometimes accompanied by somatic symptoms including rapid heart rate, increase perspiration, shortness of breath, stuttering, etc. The increased nervousness can be triggered by exposure of an individual to social situations, which often results in the individual avoiding the situations.
