Yes it certainly can. Its a mixture of behavior and habits of thought which can when severe be called Social Phobia or Social Anxiety Disorder. While some drugs may help, the best treatment is CBT ( Cognitive-Behaviour Therapy ) which helps you to shange those negative ( and inaccurate !) assumptions about yourself, change the negative thought habits, and learn to behave and then feel, confident and comfortable when socializing with other people. So you neednt remain so unhappy and uneasy for much longer. See a good local psychologist for assessment and a discussion of this treatment
