Nervous breakdown can be defined as a stress overload or emotional limitation on dealing with stresses. Here’s how to tell if you are having a nervous breakdown.
  • 1

    Dizziness or light-headedness

    Nervous breakdown starts with a feeling of dizziness and is one of the first things to suggest that an already intense stress level has hit its upper limit. Dizziness refers to a feeling that the room is spinning or the ground is moving.

  • 2

    Irregular heartbeat

    When you are having a nervous breakdown, your heart will pound or beat irregularly. The nervous breakdown symptoms experienced will purely be stress-related and medical tests will not reveal any heart problem because of the same.

  • 3

    Profuse sweating

    If you are experiencing clammy hands along with excessive sweating, you could be having a nervous breakdown. It is one of the body’s ways to tell that you are under a lot of stress.

  • 4

    Exhaustion and fatigue

    The feeling of continued tiredness accompanies nervous breakdown, which will make it quite difficult for you to perform everyday chores and activities; everything will seem like a hurdle.

  • 5

    Trembling and shaking

    Body trembling and shaking hands/legs during nervous breakdown can be a cause of embarrassment, which can further increase stress because of body image anxiety.
