So scared to look stupid...It makes me look stupid

I'm in a job that I like but they are constantly pushing me to do better, which is a good thing. But I have such a fear of looking stupid I end up looking stupid. We were in a training session and the trainer pointed at random individuals to summarize a video. Everyone immediately responded. When it was my turn my face turned red, my mind went blank and I began to panic. What is wrong with me?? If I could have said something, it would have been better than that. I hate situations like that and when they call a meeting like that, I get physically ill. I can talk to anyone about my job, I even do training sessions of my own. I speak to people much higher up than myself, but when I am put on the spot and not given time to prepare my words, I shut down immediately. How do I fix this?
