stiff neck and lightheaded?
« on: February 24, 2014, 02:55:34 PM »
can anxiety cause the sensation of having a stiff neck and being lightheaded? I'm so scared I'm going to pass out.

Yes because we stay so tensed up and then it becomes a chronic problem and we don't really address it we keep the shoulders up almost to our ears and then our neck and shoulder muscles get worse each day then they form small knots then those knots tear and then that causes the head to hurt also..

It is a vicious cycle and hurts extremely bad for most and I am one.. Today mine is horrible on my right side from shoulder to into the head.

Controlling Anxiety, Panic, Stress and Depression also our body posture plays a huge role .. how you hold your head and neck and the spine all the way down to the tail bone .. poor posture is really important along with eating right and exercise .

Try moist heat and a hot shower to release the tension and stiffness also massage .. drink water always..

Take Care,

I have found a definite connection between a stiff neck and lightheadedness.  Glad there's someone else who has made that connection, as well.  I've had stiff necks for years and it is all stress related.

It's 100% anxiety related. I have been really stressed and got this awful stiffness and pain in my neck that lasted months. On top of that I started feeling dizzy/light headed and started to worry even more.
My friend told me to look up isometric exercises for neck on youtube. They are very easy and help big time! I tried them and after 2-3 days the pain and dizziness were gone.
Worth trying I think  :yes:
