I hear that some people on here has been diagnose with both. But I thought if you have general anxiety then anxiety in social situations is just one of the many areas you experience anxiety in.

In a prior question, you asked about drug interactions. Pq me if you want more of an informed answer.
I, too, have panic/anxiety and agoraphobia among other issues. Anxiety is anxiety. It just is, for whatever reason, panic attacks are something else. I understand that you are apprehensive about starting college. It's a world unto itself. You will meet many new people, some just like you.
If you aren't feeling better before school starts, make an appointment with your shrink to ask about Klonopin to take at night as it can make some people sleepy when taken in the morning. That may allay some of your anxiety. If, after you begin school, and are still unhappy, there are mental health counselors available to you on campus.
I wish you a wonderful time in your college years. Can be lots of fun.

Hello. As the others said, yes you can. Actually generalized anxiety disorder has many subsets and social anxiety is one of those. The main idea is what you do to be treated. My hubby has this too. He was excellent in his major and asked to do grad school by his professor. When he had to student teach, his anxiety became too much. To this day, forty years later, he still regrets not having proper treatment so he could have fulfilled his burning desire for a career. You are very smart to see what you may need. Major universities and colleges have extensive mental health programs, for just this type of thing. As you head off to college, be sure to check it out. It can be your ticket to health and a great and successful future. Good luck to you. seek treatment as you can. You will be amazed how many others have this condition. Go for it!
