Breakups are a terrible thing. They leave you in an awful emotional state and can be something many people do not even recover from. Heartbreak can come due to many different reasons such as someone you love suddenly dying, being cheated on, having your trust broken, having someone let you down, having someone you love leave you without a word, or even have someone close to you abuse you both physically and mentally. The stress you endure causes a whirlwind of changes in your body, which can result in many physical changes that occur to you rather than just emotional ones. Below are the common symptoms of a bad break up.
Stress can cause actual physical pain. It can lead to you having stomachaches and headaches. It causes a change in your stomach’s production of gastric acid, which will cause you to experience a lot of pain in your stomach. It can even cause ulcers, which are more common in these kinds of tough situations than you might think. Stress headaches themselves are a pain, and you might have experienced them yourselves as they can be caused by even a little bit of stress.
Stress itself makes you anxious and causes a constant feeling of unhappiness in your body. It’s like poison in your body. Increased blood pressure is a common sign of stress and can lead to cardiac diseases. It is well known that people in high-stress occupations are more prone to heart attacks and die earlier than those with less stressful jobs.
Heartbreaks can cause you to let go of taking care of yourself and lead you to a bad diet. Depending on how you cope with a bad breakup, you may gain weight, and you may lose weight. You might not feel hungry all day, and therefore you wouldn’t eat. On the flip side, you may eat more to cope with the stress as an escape. Many people who dealt with extreme trauma are now obese because they ate a lot of food to distract them from thinking about the trauma they went through.
