Sounds like the beginning of agoraphobia to me. I would see a doctor about it.

Yes you do have social anxiety. I have had it for years and now it has turned into agoraphobia. I also have panic attacks. I am not saying all this could happen to you but just be aware of these things.
Have you seen a therapist? I stay secluded to my home but my therapist is trying to help me with these issues. I take xanax for the panic attacks and anxiety. But they do have different meds.

I suggest you go to a mental health facility in your area. They can be quite helpful.
I wish you well and God Bless!
