I've just got home from having an exam, and I think I might of had a nervous breakdown (I'm not quite sure).
Here is the situation....
I feel like I have been suffering from social anxiety since I started University. In the second year I started attending less lectures as I got really nervous about being in such a big silent room full of people, and this past semester (in my final year) I only attended one lecture. Regardless I have still got good grades, but I just can't seem to handle being in a room full of people.
Today I had my first (and thankfully, last) exam during my time at University. In the early morning I was so nervous about the thought of being in the exam room with a bunch of people that I decided to go to my departments reception to see if I could do the exam in a separate room on my own. I had already been shaking before I got there, but when I went to ask I feel like I just broke down. I began shaking much more, and I could barely talk and was crying. I have never felt like this before, and I have no idea what came over me. I was just so nervous!
Is this a nervous breakdown? Or, is this something that usually happens with anxiety before? I have had shakes before and upset tummy, but never have I been scared enough that I would cry. It felt rather embarassing too, crying in front of people I don't know and one of my lecturers. Should I go to see a doctor as I have never been about my anxiety?
Thank you for any advice!
