Social anxiety disorders can take the form of agoraphobia, which is the fear of open places or large crowds, or generalized anxiety disorder where a person is tense and anxious at all times. These types of anxiety disorders are specifically related to people and especially strangers; rarely do they occur when someone is safe in their own home or in a familiar place.

Panic Attacks or Panic Disorders

Panic attacks are also classified as a type of anxiety disorder. This feeling of panic can come on at any time or anywhere; some even experience them when in their own bed! They can also be triggered by certain uncomfortable events or circumstances, such as being in a crowded room or when needing to do some public speaking. Panic anxiety disorder can be experienced by children, or can develop in adults for what seems like absolutely no reason at all.
