Anxiety disorders can also produce physiological symptoms, the body's response to feelings of dread. Social anxiety disorder can lead to sweating, shaking, nausea, and tears — stress or fight-or-flight responses. In some cases, people with the disorder become overly conscious of the way they are moving, causing them to appear clumsy. Blushing is also extremely common.
