Anxiety disorder, thinking too much, unable to answer questions quickly, nervousness, sweating on talking to others. Treatment?

I m 14 years old. I think I have some kind of anxiety disorder . Because I think about anything before I do it thousands times. For some reason I hate answering questions out loud in school even though I m sure of the answer, sometimes I doubt if so much but deep down I know that s the right answer. When having a conversation with a stranger, a teacher or even a close friend I get nervous and sweaty, sometimes I come up with any wrong answer to end the conversation. It s just that I m always nervous or shy and it s annoying me ..

Psychiatrist 's  Response
Hello and welcome to Healthcare Magic. Thanks for your query.

You seem to be suffering from an Social Anxiety Disorder. I would advise you consult a psychiatrist for a detailed evaluation and further treatment. There are effective treatment options available - in the form of medication and counselling / psychotherapy which will help you overcome this problem.

Wish you all the best.
