I have extremely bad stage fright please help!!!!!!!!

these are some things that happen before a presentation: I shake, face turns red, sweat, don't sleep a wink, stomach ache, head ache, eyes watering,face twitching, dizziness. I have tried everything under the sun to get rid of this "stage fright" and when I ask people for help they don't take me seriously. I can't eat the day of the presentation because I am so nervous. days before the presentation I thinks of ways to miss it like making myself throw up. this is very severe stage fright. HELP!!!! please!

What are you so afraid of? You don't say what kind of presentation you are making. Knowing your material and being prepared are key. If you are confident, you have no reason to be nervous. Practice in front of the mirror. If possible during your presentation, try looking just over the people's heads instead of directly at them. What's the worst thing that can happen, people might say something bad about you. People are going to do that anyway. Try to relax and focus on what you want to say. You might see a doctor and get something for anxiety also. Hope this helps.

you know how people say imagine every one naked? it doesnt work right. the same thing happens to me when i have to do a playing test in orchestra! act like your the only one there! dont think about what the people are thinking about you, they wont mind if you mess up because they messed up or felt nervous before too so its nothing they havent seen before!!

Just think of it this way. Some people have to get naked in public. You need to say a few words in front of people. If it helps, just keep your head on your paper. It may deduct some points, but it may save you from being so scared.
