In certain traumatic and anxiety-provoking past events, physical and emotional reactions can become linked to the experience and moment of trauma. When you experience similar moments in the present, those previous physical and emotional reactions, whether they are positive or or negative, are reactivated. This means you re-experience the original trauma in the present.
If you are experiencing social anxiety disorder now then it is likely you experienced one or more traumatic events in the past, perhaps in your teenage or childhood years.
Panic Attack Symptom
