Can anxiety cause dizziness?

+1 vote
Can GAD or regular anxiety cause constant dizziness? I went for my check ups already and I'm fine so I'm guessing the next step is psychological evidence?

Yes, you can get dizziness from anxiety, as anxiety affects blood flow in your body, and the changes in blood flow can cause dizziness. You can also get dizziness from anxiety when you hyperventilate. When you have a panic attack, you can hyperventilate and this can make you light-headed due to low oxygenation of your blood due to the over-breathing. Either way, anxiety and stress reduction can help to alleviate this. You can start by taking the anxiety test, and this will give an an initial idea about what your stress levels are, and what you can do about them.
