i suffer from both anorexia nervosa and social anxiety disorder. What I really want to know is, are the two related?

Yes, anorexia nervosa and anxiety disorders often go together; I'd expect social anxiety disorder to be included in that co-occurrence; if you'd like that checked in a literature search, you can let me know. I hope that you are getting help for your illness? Do you have any questions about that?
