You are actually suffering from what is known as, glossophobia, the fear of public speaking.

San Antonio based psychiatrist, Dr. Harry Croft offers help to those resolving to conquer this phobia that is among the top fears most people have, ranking up there with fear of spiders, snakes, drowning and yes, even death.

1. Understand and rethink your stage fright by renaming it from fear to excitement.
