Anxiety dizziness: Anxiety can cause many different physical symptoms. The way our bodies feel is controlled by the brain, and anxiety is a brain signaling condition, so it can result in very real physical symptoms. Dizziness, tremors, headaches are common. Anxiety can make a person feel out of control and that can result in dizziness. BUT, if anxiety is properly treated these symptoms should improve too.
