You go and get professional help.
See a therapist or a psychologist.
They may be able to give you something temporary.

1 - Walk away from whatever is causing the anxiety, if not possible...
2 - Take a few calming breaths and talk to myself in my head in a calm, firm voice to use logic and cut off emotions. To put everything going on around me into perspective.
3 - Tell myself what "anxiety" is, why it is flaring up and that this too shall pass.
4 - Repeat back to #1.

There is a world of Social Anxiety Self-Help on the internet. There are you tube guided meditations to use, and most likely videos about social anxiety too.
You can go to the library and check out books regarding social anxiety recovery and self-help.
It all works when we WORK AT IT. Making positive life changes takes effort.

Don’t focus too much on yourself (easier said than done) look and concentrate on the people or person you are talking to and that will take you outside yourself. When you don’t look people in the eye, and you have weak body language (shrugged shoulders, looking down) you set yourself up to fail socially. Yoga has helped me enormously with my posture and body image and after a session I feel much more confident meeting people. The worst thing you can do is be insular because your brain can’t see the fear in front of it and will magnify it.

Trade it in for Agoraphobia? Just kidding. Try and keep your social circles small and if you must go to a public place do so when there's likely to be less people there.
