I'm sure it feels strange, as well as unpleasant, but this sounds like a very well-reconized condition which fortunately usually responds very well indeed to the proper treatment. We'd call it Social Anxiety Disorder these days - classic symptoms of physical and psychological anxiety, in social situations, especially where you feel people might be focussing on you or evaluating you.
And of course a vicious cycle easily get set up - once you've had a nasty experience of being too nervous in front of people, you dread i happening again, come to expect it to happen, and of course that makes it more likely to happen, and so on.
Cognitive-Behaviour Therapy ( CBT ) friom a psychologist can usually clear this up surprisingly soon, perhaps with the addition of some medication otherwise also used to treat Depression, which is also helpful in reducing anxiety disorder.
After treatment, you won't even need the vodkas before performing ! They'll be optional !
Anxiety is physical and psychological, hence the shakes and the other features.
