Social Phobia, Anxiety
I have started to develop this phobia where I am not able to interact with my colleagues. My hands start shaking and my heart pounds when I sit for lunch or tea with them. I have started being alone, avoiding people. This is like a phobia which is scaring me and getting me extremely low. I am not able to focus on anything. I have stopped caffeine and nicotine. Will this go away overtime ? Can a doctor help me out?

Hello, as per the description provided by you here, is suggestive of significant anxiety and possibly low mood specifically in presence of your colleagues, additionally you have described poor concentration affecting your day to day functioning. Such a profile of symptoms may be suggestive of social phobia or depressive episode or some other anxiety spectrum disorder. Hence I would suggest that you seek a face to face consultation with a psychiatrist near you for a comprehensive assessment. The psychiatrist after thorough assessment will guide you through managing these symptoms. Hope this helps you..
