Why does someone cry for no reason?

Crying is seen as the weakness of a person. A person cries if he or she is happy, sad or angry.

You can find many people who can cry while reading a sad book or even at sight of an emotional movie scene, people tend to cry.


There has to be no reason whatsoever for someone to cry; crying in happiness or just being sad is one of the behavioral habits.

But with these not so interlinked reasons, some of the important reasons such as physical condition, stress, fatigue, anxiety, and depression play a crucial role.

Heart disorders such as stroke, hypoglycemia, vitamin deficiency, thyroid disorder, auto-immune diseases such as ALS, MS, and Parkinson’s disease are some of the physical conditions.

These diseases can create an emotional rollercoaster within your brain. With a lot of hormonal changes and other chemicals changes, it can create an illusion of situation where the things aren’t falling in place which gives a feeling of situation going out of hand; which happen to make you cry more often.

If you are feeling any of the ‘sinking in feeling’, always consult your doctor.


Stress is the number one reason behind emotional setbacks in your life. Stress can be from physical or emotional situations. Some of the physical symptoms include headaches, nausea, tension, and even unknown crying episodes.

Alternatively, relieving stress by doing yoga, going to the gym or even meditation can help.


Anxiety is one of the many reasons why someone can cry with no reason at all. Anxiety affects our body in different ways. It is a disorder which is a cumulative effect of worrying, trouble sleeping, nervousness, fatigue, headache, fear, difficulty concentrating and among others.
