Extreme social anxiety and obsessive compulsive disorderI am 27 years old male. I am suffering from social anxiety, OCD. I can not do things in front of people. I have fear of making mistakes in the presence of people. I was taking allopathic medicine since 3 years. But due to severe side effects i stopped from 3 months. Now problems again rise. I had taken ayurvedic herbs but could not get so much relief. I also used argentum nitricum 1 M for one month.
Kindly any experienced doctor help me.

My life is limited to home only. I can not go to college, functions, market etc. I have only one friend. No one likes to talk to me because i am cowardious. I can not face any social condition. Whenever i go to college then i think how i will meet students , how will i meet professors etc. Every problem has some kind of reason behind that. I have also. Some students were joking on me and they hurted me alot during graduation time in 2011. My father dont support me. He is very rude person. That is why I am like this now.
