Crowds, No Thanks!

I avoid crowds as much as possible. Whenever i'm surrounded by people, I become unsettled and my mind starts racing. I start breathing harder and my pulse beats faster. I feel so uncomfortable that if someone starts a conversation with me, I reply with no emotion and might sound uninterested. What bothers me the most is when people come up and ask me why i'm mad, sad, shy or quiet. Which makes me even more self conscious, because I begin to think people are noticing my anxiety. Then my cheeks get flushed and I stand alone, in a crowd of people, while everyone socializes.
