About the symptom

Social anxiety can be the fear or anxiety in situations such as social interactions, being observed by others, or performing in front of others.

Possible causes

  • Social anxiety disorder

    This is also known as social phobia and is a mental health condition characterized by a constant fear of being watched and judged by others. It can impact work, school, and other daily activities.

  • Hyperactivity disorder

    Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is a chronic condition characterized by attention difficulty, hyperactivity, and impulsiveness. It often begins in childhood and can cause a child to have trouble in school, at home, or with friends. Causes may include genetics, head injury, exposure to environmental risks (e.g., lead) during pregnancy or at a young age, alcohol and tobacco use during pregnancy, premature delivery, and low birth weight. It is more common in male children.

  • Gastro Esophageal Reflux Disease (GERD)

    A condition where stomach acid flows back up the esophagus (food pipe). It can be caused or worsened by obesity, alcohol, and caffeine. Eating habits also play a role - eating large meals quickly or lying down after meals are known triggers.
