Social Anxiety Disorder or SAD is characterized by extreme fear about being judged by others or behaving in a way that might cause oneself embarrassment or ridicule. This intense anxiety may lead to avoidance of social situations and significantly restrict one’s social and work life. Physical symptoms associated with this disorder include heart palpitations, faintness, blushing, and profuse sweating.
