Can stress and anxiety make you feel off balance?By
Always feel like iam goin to fall over but never do. Also have headaches, nausea, and a lot of gas. Is this all stress. Doc said stomach problems were.
Oh I feel for you! I have been there! It definitely sounds like its stress/anxiety related – I had most of those symptoms when my anxiety was at its peak.
The dizziness, I found, was the most awful symptom as you always felt like you were going to pass out! Trust me, you won't, but its an awful feeling nonetheless!
I was told (by Doc) that the dizziness and gas is due to slight hyperventilation, as you are breathing very sharp, shallow breaths. Alot of the time you can swallow the air, hence the gas. Also the headaches are from muscle tension and I generally had a sick or 'nauseous' feeling most of the time as well.
Hang in there; things do get better eventually. I would recommend seeing a naturopath that specialises in anxiety disorders. They can give you herbs to help with the physical symptoms of stress/anxiety. Mine helped me more than my doctor or my psychologist combined!
