It’s common for toxic relationships to cause such physical symptoms, according to Dr. Michael Lam, an expert on adrenal fatigue.

Lyss opened up about how her toxic relationship made her sick in February episode from her podcast, saying that she thought her ex was her soul mate.
The presenter explained that they had dated for “a long time” and were head over heels in love, but external factors tore them apart.
She wasn’t ready to go into details at the time, but in the most recent episode she shared that he grew up in an Orthodox religious community that wouldn’t accept him marrying her, even if she converted.
“We were on the high of life, like super crushes, and then it all fell apart very, very quickly,” he said. “As it started to break down and things started to get super tough, I started getting these crazy chronic yeast infections.”
Lyss (pictured in 2020) opened up about the relationship on her podcast, Date Yourself Place, saying that she and her ex split over religious differences.
“When you’re in toxic situations, and you’re not really with the right person, your body will talk to you. Your body will speak,’ she insisted.
Lyss insisted that the infections were so painful that she “couldn’t walk”.
‘I felt super sick. I always had stomach aches. I always felt nauseated, bloated and fatigued. I felt so weird,’ she explained. ‘I couldn’t put my finger on it. I really didn’t know what was going on.
Lyss said she tried changing her diet and was prescribed medication, but it only temporarily masked her symptoms.
“I started getting these stabbing chest pains. I felt like I was having a heart attack,” she recalled. ‘I swear to god. It was the craziest thing in the world. My chest was tight and I had a sharp knife through my chest, it felt like that.’
Lyss said she went to the doctor and had an electrocardiogram (EKG) and chest scan, but all tests came back normal. His symptoms were attributed to stress, although he didn’t believe it at the time.
“After months and months of having crazy, chronic health issues, when I broke up with this person, all health issues were gone,” she stated.
“When you’re in toxic situations, and you’re not really with the right person, your body will talk to you. Your body will speak,” she added.
‘If you’re not going to listen to your logic and you’re not going to listen to your thoughts telling you to get out, your body will try to tell you to get out physically. And I learned it the hard way.
