It’s not easy to hide the symptoms of social anxiety. While your brain may tell you that there’s nothing to be afraid of, your body may respond differently – through blushing, quickened heart rate, sweating, trembling, nausea, or dizziness, says the Mayo Clinic.
You may disengage from a conversation or have trouble remembering what someone just said to you when you’re in the throes of anxiety – like forgetting someone’s name at a party after hearing it moments earlier. The source says you may have a “feeling that your mind has gone blank.”
