    There are medications like Propanolol that help with social anxiety in crowds. As far as agoraphobia, there is a therapy called successive approximation that lessens the fear in successive degrees. Also, if you can find a practitioner in your area, EEG biofeedback (neurofeedback) will change the electrical patterns in the brain and lessen the patterns that set up unreasonable fear. The fourth thing that might help is cranial-sacral therapy, administered by a manual physical therapist trained in that specialty. These are not "quack" therapies--they actually work. They take time and not usually covered by insurance. Please look them up online and read about them.

    Read the book, "The Great Pain Deception: faulty medical advice is making us worse" by Steven Ozanovich. Panic disorder is totally avoidable once you understand what makes it happen.

    Contact your local social services or speak to your therapist or psychologist who diagnosed you. Many are aware of local support groups. These are very important in healing. Also, look on Facebook for support groups.

    Anti-anxiety medications

    Individual therapy

    Group therapy

    Support groups (although I don't know how many people with social disorders will decide to independently join a support group).
