I understand that you are wondering if you have social anxiety disorder and what the head symptoms can be attributed to. It is not possible for me to tell this based on your description. You may want to see your doctor about your head symptoms. I am not sure if you are experiencing social anxiety disorder because I do not know what your psychological symptoms are. Are you anxious about meeting people, talking to people, being in social situations, etc.? A psychologist can help you determine whether anxiety is playing a role here.
