Sufferers often know something is wrong. They may not know that there is a recognised condition called “social anxiety disorder” but they will usually be aware that they feel overly anxious in particular social/public situations.
The scope of the anxiety may be focused on specific types of social/public situations or generalised to almost any social/public encounter. It is often the intensity of the anxiety that differentiates social anxiety from shyness or self-consciousness.
There are screening questionnaires such as those below. Please note that a positive score on the questionnaire is not conclusive and a diagnosis cannot be made from this alone. The content is not intended to, and should not be, treated as a substitute for the medical advice of your own doctor or any other health care professional.
