Dr. Edward Kuhnley answered:

Why do I feel like crying sometimes when I am extremely tired and/or under a lot of stress? Does crying relieve stress? If so, how?

Expressive outlet

Open-uri20121212-30558-1h30rfm
There is a neuronal connection between tear duct & emotional brain regions. Chemicals are released during emotions & tears serve one outlet. Socially they communicate; psychologically they may soothe or produce aversive sensation prompting action to cope. There are numerous theories which reflect the complexity. Most women feel better after a good cry, If it relieves your stress, enjoy the effect.

Past 2 days I've been crying 1 min laughing the next what's wrong with me :( ?

Crying for no reason

You very well may be depressed. And, your emotions are probably exhausting to you. This rapid swinging from tears to laughter is a good sign for depression. Just know that there is help. You do not have to live this way. You just need to ask for help. You can start with your trusted health care advisor and go from there until you get a remedy that works.

Someone told me I can either wake up laughing or crying after surgery, is that true?

Not really

Crying
While those patients who go to sleep very distressed tend to wake up that way, the opposite is not true. Most patients come awake very gently and slowly. You most likely will too. Talk to your anesthesiologist about your fears before the operation. Good luck.

Why when i see something funny and start laughing, i get an overwhelming feeling of sadness and start crying?

MDE, pseudobulbar

The most common causes of alexithymia (unawareness of affect or inappropriate affect) is depression or other psychiatric disorders. However, neurologic disorders, such as pseudo bulbar affect, can result in inappropriate affective responses. If antidepressants are not effective, a neurologic workup is indicated.

Dr. Bac X. Nguyen answered:

What is it called when you have sudden bursts of inappropriate crying? Could this include inappropriate urges to cry without ever fully crying?

Maybe depression?

Open-uri20130416-14171-8hwqgt
Many people experiencing anxiety/depression have crying episodes for no apparent reason. They just feel sad and start crying even-though there may not be any reason to be sad or cry about. Depression presents itself differently at different stages of life, but crying is quite common. I suggest you contact your doc for an evaluation and possible treatment. I wish you the best of luck.
