Is this anxiety?

So I've always been a bit shy and I really struggle with eye contact. When I was 9 I developed some kind of eye twitch. Can't remember if it was nerves or tiredness or eye strain. Sometimes I wouldn't know I was doing it. I grew out of it eventually.

Anyway now when I speak to people my eyes hurt and start to water. Feels like in not blinking and then my eyes hurt so I have to blink. Is this anxiety? I feel conscience that I might be blinking like I used to but not sure if it's in my mind. It's particularly worse if I'm nervous or uncomfortable. What do people think? Anyone else had it?
