Break up anxiety or something else?

hi everyone;
Unfortunately I’m currently going through a break up, Covid and other factors were the reason, there’s no hate there. But I’ve just felt weird since the break up like almost empty? But I haven’t gotten emotional as much as I thought I would. I’ve also been feeling dizzy/disoriented and I get worried there’s something medically wrong with me (I have health anxiety). Is it normal to get weird physical feelings like dizziness and nausea during a break up? I’ve also been getting insomnia but that’s not unusual for me.

I've never dated before so I cannot describe the severity of the symptoms to you. But whenever bad things happen to me, I do get nauseated and that leads to dizziness. Plus, I too, have suffered from insomnia.

If your symptoms last an extended period of time, you should go to a psychiatrist. A mental health professional could help you.

Hey :) sorry to hear about the breakup. I think people react to break ups in different ways, so you're definitely not the only one to have 'medical' issues after this happens. Though, it might be best to seek help if dizziness continues, that's never fun!

About feeling empty, I think that's quite normal. You've shared your life with this person, and you become interdependent on one another physically and emotionally. Breakups can leave a void where they used to be, and that can be tough. Best thing you can do now is aim to rebuild that part of your life yourself, and lean on friends and family (and us!) for support as you process what's happened and move forwards. You're doing okay, keep going! :)
