Anxiety: Anxiety can certainly cause tension and tight muscles. Dizziness and nausea can be accompanying symptoms as well. Hoping you've seen your family doctor for eval of these complaints, and that you'll consider working with a psychologist and/or psychiatrist about this also. There are good treatments for anxiety -- helpful effects can spread through your entire body and mind. Be well.
