Self consciousness, anxiety, fear, nervousness, inferiority complex

Hello, Am a Medical student currently doing my final year. From my child hood onwards i have a problem with shyness , Over Self conscious. Now i have fear of public speaking,blushing, anxiety ,lip shivering etc... I think am more active mentally than physically, because if am seeing someone then i ll guess myself ,what the other person is thinking about me and I ll act on that guess eg: I ll guess he/she is thinking badly about my standing position,my laugh etc etc..and I ll feel uncomfortable with that. This same is happening on all other daily activities. Because of these problems,Am very bad in mingling with friends and other social circles. My medical school life also getting distracted because of this,Am not even able to ask a doubt to my teacher even if am alone with teacher,if am asking a doubt I ll think for many minutes like what she ll think about me,what if my language is bad ,what if my question is bad etc etc... Also sometimes I ll have a fear or am afraid to ask something to someone, I have good patience,but if i get angry and saying something ,then my lip will shiver, Blushing on my face etc. Am making my own thoughts about what other will think of me. Because of all this I can t walk in public in a relaxed state,my mind will always be in working state.If am talking in a group who are not too close to me,then my lips will start to shiver, uncomfortable etc because during the talk my mind will be working on others like where are they focusing,are they focusing my talk,lip movement etc..are they laughing about me etc.... Am only good with my few too close friends.. because of the above problem,I only have few friends,I ll always be at my home ,I won t go out like others.. In summary i can say, I have self consciousness , fear, Blushing, anxiety, Nervousness , Panic etc.. Doc, Is there any ways to change all this ? Am very sad in medical school because of the above issues, Am very much like to perform on some topics on my class,but I ll hide from these stuffs ..

welcome to HCM. i read your query. since you are a medical student you yourself can see and admit the solution of the fear........thats is only and only to be courageous enough to throw away them all........i know you must have tried lot and wud have failed to do so. but always remember that in this world' the people sees in you what YOU shows''. whenever you meet some new person and start becoming conscious .....just think that he will observe your fear only if you show him ( by your body language, lip shivering etc) try to control that immediate change of behavior.
one more thing you can ask your own self......even after allllll...........if the opposite person dont like your speech, or question, or presentation.....then what will be the result?? one is going to hold you in jail.....never be afraid of the result......never fear to try. if you fail then try better and stronger. you just need some self motivation. you can try some personality development coaching if you want. no need to go to psychiatrist. need to do self evaluation. there must be some activity which u are never afraid of, which u r confident of....try to involve in them to built up confidence.
hope this helps you.
Thank you. best luck.
