Does the worry or anxiety cause significant distress (i.e., it bothers you that you worry too much) or significant interference with your day-to-day life? For example, the worry may make it difficult for you to perform important tasks at work, interfere with relationships, or get in the way of sleep.

Do you experience feelings of anxiety, fear, or panic immediately upon encountering a feared social situation?

Does fear of embarrassment cause you to avoid doing things or speaking to people?

Do you tend to avoid a feared social situation, or if you can’t avoid it, the situation is endured with intense anxiety or discomfort?

Do you recognize that the fear is excessive, unreasonable, or out of proportion to the actual risk in the situation?

Do you have sudden attacks of intense fear or discomfort that are unexpected or out of the blue?

Have you ever had one of these attacks and spent the next month or more living in fear of having another attack or worrying about the consequences of the attack?

What do I do next?
