  1. From the short description that you have given I suspect that you have social phobia. Social phobia is an anxiety disorder and it has treatments. I strongly recommend you to talk to your family physician and get advice. He might refer you to a consultant Psychiatrists.

  2. Fawas, similar psychiatric illnesses are very common. But due to the social stigma we are reluctant to get the help from a doctor. It should not be the case as mental diseases are also like other disease. It is not our chosen illness and we do not have a control over what kind of disease we get. One may get Diabetes and one may have anxiety.

    Most of the mental illness have treatment in western medicine. They have pills and also there are speech therapy which include many treatment methods like family therapy, group therapy, behaviour therapy, cognitive therapy.

    I hope you will make the decision soon to visit a family physician/general practioner or directly channel a psychiatrist.

Hello Adil,

I understand your concern regarding your health. Rather than getting 2nd hand information on the internet, I think you should best speak to the nephrology/renal units at various Sri Lankan hospitals and obtain the information straight from the horse’s mouth. You could try the state run National Hospital of Sri Lanka (telephone: 94-11-2691111) – where locals are treated free of charge, I don’t know how it is for foreigners. Or else there are several private hospitals such as Lanka Hospitals, Asiri, Nawaloka and Durdans. You could look up their phone numbers online and call them directly.




No. She is a clinical psychologist, not a psychiatrist. But she will refer patients to a psychiatrist if medication is needed.
