DIZZINESS! muscle tension and off balance

Hi, I've been feeling pretty dizzy for the past months and i am trying to figure out why.

I do suffer from low blood pressure but sometimes the dizziness feels more like an off balance issue.

I have a really tight neck and shoulders, my whole body is really tight actually. Can the dizziness be caused by bad muscle tension?

does anybody have the same issue?

I hope you all have a great day.

dizziness and muscle tension is most likely due to anxiety. Very common symptoms.

work on relaxation, mindfulness etc

anneavo, my neck and shoulder muscles are so incredibly tight that I have to remind myself to relax my shoulders. I have a tendency to bring them up to my ears when stressed. It can throw your balance off and make you feel lightheaded. Enjoy your day as well!

I know sometimes i find myself squeezing my shoulders like you do when its really cold.

I have to stop because i feel dizzy and tight every single day.

I am actually going to the gym tonight for the first time so wish me luck.

Hi, I suffer exactly the same, tension and aching pain in neck and shoulders. I am sure this is what causes me to feel dizzy/unbalanced ...also a bit nauseous. You are not alone, it's horrible.
