So basically, one of my main issues is running into somebody I didn't expect. This can in turn send me into a panic attack. Granted, I'm usually a bit nervous before hand but I'm at college right now so this just increases that nervousness.

Does anyone else have this issue?

yes it does... some people just get affected by it more.

Oh yeah. Stumble on some words, run a blank in my head and get twitchy even if it's someone whose company I genuinely enjoy. My bf often runs into people he knows. When that happens I usually blend in the background. If it's someone I dislike or that makes me nervous I take cover behind a random stranger, bus stop, car- you name it.

That's a major source of anxiety for me. I do fine when I'm able to pick when to initiate conversation. But if I don't know when I'm going to have to be social, it's very stressful. For example, if I'm meeting somebody in public, I try to be the one to arrive a little later so that I can choose my most confident moment to initiate contact.
