I remember this thread, but now that I read it more thoroughly, I'm going through exactly what you are. SA had caused it 3 years ago but now it's the cause of SA. It made me quit college, stay home all day, and unable to smile like you.
On top of that, it led me to (what people say to be but I still don't think it is) the misbelief that my head tremor 'spreads' the anxiety to people who see it and they start clearing throat or coughing. That coupled with hypersentivity to noise makes me extremely irritated by those sounds. It gives me so much chest pain I feel like I'm gonna have a heart attack someday.

That's what I thought I had. But I've already been to 2 neurologists who said I seemed fine. I've also tried a low dose of propranolol(up to 40mg) but it did not reduce the head tremor.
