I have had mild to moderate social anxiety for many years but, lately, a disturbing physiological accompaniment to this has been occurring.
When I am in a restaurant or in public, I cannot pick up a full glass of anything without my hand going into major tremors. I get a sharp jolt at the back of my neck strong enough to make me flinch and it prevents me from further attempts at drinking my beverage (this has happened with other items too, weight is not a determining factor) until I have calmed down.
I'd like to know if this is anxiety-related or something else. I really want to get past this so it doesn't limit my life.
Sorry for the delayed response, but I cannot tell you how relieving it is to have a professional restate what I believed was happening. My colleagues and I work with mental imagery for comprehension and have recently been researching its use in conditioning anxiety responses like this.
Thank you again. I've seen some improvement, though not completely so.View Thread
