It took a while to find these support groups. But I have had SA for a long time now.. Think it came around when I was 18. (Now I am 33). I was always shy around girls & groups. Had panic attacks, mainly sweating, twitching & tons of embarrassment.

Interestingly, I had had other symptoms as well lots of fatigue, fuzzy memory, food allergies & body pains.

I went to lots of docs here in the US but I wasnt convinced that they knew what they were talking about. In 2005 things got worse. I was getting increasingly allergic to most foods. I quit my job. Took a long break 2 years not knowing what was wrong with my health.

Between all this, I would go out & party & go out to meet women. As long as I was drunk to an extent (2 beers) the SA didnt bother me. I didnt realize that I had SA at this point. But when I wasnt drunk, the SA would be on. My face would twitch & I would get all nervous etc..
