Exercise inducing withdrawal symptoms

Recommended Posts


I know for many exercise causes problems. My pattern seems to be I feel great post exercise (bike ride for 45mins) then later on in the day I develop withdrawal symptoms that deteriorate even worse when I take my usual tapering dose. As exercise increasing serotonin could it be that we are sort of kindling ourselves with natural serotonin rises and drops?, is that possible ?
