Don't get depressed with what had already happened. Stage fright is not really an incurable condition. You just have to be more confident with yourself and try to get used to people by being in places with a lot of people. The fact that you have stage fright is that you are lack of confidence and you are afraid of people and what they might think of you. Understand this, even when you are not on the stage, people will still be judging you every now and then, so there is not much of a difference to be on stage.

Very simple.. Try to relax and be calm. Don't overestimate the audience who is sitting in front of you

You should join a local Toast Masters group. They will help you get over your fears and speak like a pro.

when does this happen? are you presenting something on stage or does this happen even when you get up in front of a class?
