Do you ever get so stressed out that you feel dizzy or jut break down and cry?

I wasn't sure where else to put this, but since stress can be a health problem and this isn't for fun.

  • I feel the same way myownhappiness does. i used to take lorazepam, lexapro, prozac and lamictal. Not at the same time of course. None of them ever worked for me, but I'm glad to see they actually help someone out there. It is very normal to get so stressed that you get dizzy, lightheaded, fatigued or just break down and cry. It's your body's natural reaction to certain situations, raising blood pressure (which can cause the dizziness and such) and providing your body with adrenaline, forcing it to choose whether to use the added energy for "fight" or "flight". I usually try to take deep breaths to calm myself down. But if that doesn't work, I go ahead and cry, crying relieves those feelings more than you think.

  • the dizziness sounds like blood pressure,and yeh I can relate!

  • Yeah but the blood pressure could be brought on by the stress of the depression. And yes, I've felt like that for the past four years but anti-depressants are just to horrible to take.
