Question
hello,
Im 20 years old female, I always feel so scared,nervous and uncomfortable around people that Im not familiar with. Even when I want talk to them, I will feel really nervous. In a discussion, I always become so quite and nervous because I feel that all the questions that I ask are so stupid.  The worst thing is, when I did something that embarassing  myself like asking stupid question, I will keep thinking about it every day and my heart will beat even faster. Also, when Im at rest and alone, my heart always suddenly beats so fast.Is that a sign of anxiety?

Answer
HiCaroline,

This are all signs of Hypoglycemia (http://www.hypoglycemia.asn.au/2011/what-is-hypoglycemia/,) which causes the over-production of stress hormones. These form the symptoms of mood disorders over which you would not have conscious control.
This can be treated by going on a Hypoglycemic Diet (http://www.hypoglycemia.asn.au/2011/the-hypoglycemic-diet/).
