I would recommend to you that you speak to your parents about the way you have been feeling, especially if this is something new for you. Feeling anxious in crowds happens to alot of people but if it starts interfering with how you go about your day and your attendence and interactions in school then you have to share that with your family so that they can help. It may be as simple as some coping stratagies or you may go see a therapist about your feelings.
