Our expert says:
Sounds like a variation among the typical responses to anxiety / stress , even mild panic --- one's breathing can change, becoming more rapid and shallow, which causes chemical changes in the blood, making us more dizzy and potentially even more nauseated ( as anxiety makes our stomach churn ). Anxiety pumps up our heart rate, so we're aware of a more racing pulse, maybe even of a faster heart beat. Muscles can get trembly, or in some areas go into spasm or cramp, causing various pains. And we're more emotionally vulnerable at such times, hence the tears, as we feel a bit overwhelmed by it all. Often, making an opportunity to step away politely from the situation that's upsetting you, and taking a little time in private just to deliberately relax, breathing calmly and clowly, sitting down, relaxing one's muscles, etc., can help a lot.
And that makes a whole bunch of us who are definitely not pregnant .... :}
