Image: Why do I have the feelings of being judged?

Hi doctor,

I am a 33 year old unmarried male. I have become extremely self-conscious and unproductive during the past one year. I do not feel sad, but I feel that I am not good enough. I have become reclusive and feel stupid. Initially, I was a very shy child. Then I become more confident and could make conversation easily with everybody. But now, I feel that I am being judged and so I avoid conversation with most people. Please help.

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • These symptoms are also seen commonly in social anxiety.
  • SSRIs (selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor) like Escitalopram, Fluoxetine, etc., can help to reduce the symptoms and you will feel better. These drugs will help to reduce the social anxiety and you will regain the confidence.
  • If these symptoms are resulting in the loss of your work, social and personal life, then please consult a psychiatrist for physical evaluation and appropriate management.

Depression - Awareness, Self-Diagnosis, and Treatment Modalities
Article Overview: Depression is among the top five causes of morbidity in today’s world.
