Feeling jittery and dizzy. Could it be due to depression or anxiety? Any relief?

hi i feel jittery everytime i go out.. This is after i got dizzy and puked when i went out one time Seems like i cant get rid of that worry out of my head. What should i do? this is effecting my social status sometimes i dont go out anymore because im scared of getting dizzy.. I know its all in the head but its easy to say. When it slaps me i feel uneasy, my feet feels light and i feel like i need to rush somewhere or rush home. I calm myself with water sometimes and a menthol rub but it seems like its getting worse. Some people say it could be because im depressed or its anxiety .. what should i do?

Psychiatrist 's  Response
Thanks for your query. On going through your symptoms, it appears that you are suffering from social anxiety disorder which has adolescent onset. It is characterised by anxiety symptoms only ion social situations. Effective anti-anxiety medication are available in addition to psychotherapy (eg exposure & response prevention). Hence, i would suggest you undergo a thorough psychiatric evaluation so that appropriate management can be initiated.
