Did you ever feel physical pain because of the emotional hurt?
Yes, when I was 18 my boyfriend died after a long battle with cancer and my whole body felt like it was going through "withdrawal" pains such as a drug addict would experience if going cold turkey. I couldn't sleep at night, my body would shake uncontrollably and my whole body ached,. This lasted for several weeks. That was more than 40 years ago, but the memory of it is still very vivid.
yes absolutely. funny how the mind can make you ache all over...that is why you actually feel your heart breaking. too each it is different in the respect that your detachment from mind and body leave you feeling more depression then you thought possible....happy thoughts become less effective and eventually fall to the wayside....snap out of it is said over and over again with little if any results. i wish there were a time limit on being allowed to feel this way but there isn't. moving on helps but the healing process will continue for years if you ever totally heal. eventually as the saying goes time heals all wounds that is because of the ability for the mind to lay certain things to rest in order for you to function daily...once again the mind rules, the body follows and we endure....
O yes, it is very interesting how it happens, but it really does. It feels as if you may die because of a broken heart.
I wouldn't say I've felt physical pain, but I have gotten sick from emotional pain before.
I do not have such feeling. In fact, i can not be easily upset.
Yes it happens. But I thought of checking with cardio specialist whether it is just because of the emotional feeling or I have some problem with my heart actually.
yes i do sometimes...when my nerves are worked up...when im mad or crying that is when my side abd stomach usually hurt the worst
Pain is bio-psycho-social. You do not need to have a physical injury to suffer pain. Emotional distress is in fact a big component of how much pain we feel. We have all heard old sayings like "broken heart", "it made me sick to my stomach", "it was so creepy it made my skin crawl". Pain is controlled by the brain in response to various stimuli that we receive, our past experiences, and current perceptions of what happened. If you step on a nail it is pretty simple to understand why you might feel pain. However, the pain we feel when we end a relationship, lose a loved one or suffer from depression is a bit more difficult to quantify. Sometimes pain can be longstanding for no apparent reason. I have a friend that suffered a traumatic amputation of his lower leg yet still suffers pain in his foot. The brain and nervous system can be a weird place. Your pain is completely understandable. Good luck I hope that you will be able to get over your emotional hurt with time.
