Anxiety can cause you to feel many things physically.
When we feel anxious our bodys respond in such a way that can make us feel exactly the way you have stated (dizzy, faint etc.) This response is hardwired into us and is commonly known as the "fight or flight" response.
During the "fight or flight" response our body undergoes a series of responses, we experience an intense adrenaline rush, adrenaline makes our hearts beat faster and because of this we need more oxygen so we breathe faster sometimes hyperventilating (getting too much oxygen) and because of this increase of oxygen in our system we can begin to feel dizzy, faint and make our heads feel heavy and weird.
So in a nut shell, YES anxiety can make us feel dizzy, faint, and very strange...
Next time try some relaxation techniques to slow your breathing down, once your breathing is under control things will start to feel a bit better..
I hope this helps
you are not alone. anxiety can make you feel EXACTLY the way you described. I am going through it right now and it is just awful. I would be totally hopeless if i had not gone through this once before about 4 months ago....and realized that you have to push through it. YOU ARE NOT GOING CRAZY it just feels like it. I can remember thinking it had to be something like that bc i had never felt so bad in my life. My mom and husband have been through the same. keep your head up. It will pass. I know it is hard, but it will go away. good luck ( :
