> > -- Actually bodies do function at a higher level when stress is there - but usually physically rather than mentally. That is how our brains are designed - to enable us to run rather than to think when there is a stress. Brains perceive all stress as external physical threat at some level - kind of from an evolutionary point of view.

--- I don't know about that. Check with your doctor. But usually people do kind of feel dizzy and even faint at extreme stress. Maybe the blood flow kind of gets restricted to the brain, and flows more to the muscles. But that is just my guess from what I have read in the past. You should check with your doc if that is a serious issue.
