    Wow no, not heard of that, it should be the opposite, excercise should help.  Excercise releases endorphins in the brain, which give you that euphoric feeling.  Banannas are good for anxiety as contain potassium which can help and serotonin again is a mood changer for the good.

    Hi fudgeybear

    I never noticed me getting anxious after doing exercise or work around the house. Some times exercise calms me down like walking i do not run or jog, and house work gets my mind off things like myself. I feel anxious a lot I know that but after you do any kind of exercise, or just house work it does have your adrenal going, and your heart rate up i noticed when I take walks my heart rate it up and when I am moving around the house doing work my heart rate goes up and I notice palpitations off an on because the heart rate and blood pressure go up and down while you are moving it goes up then when you are sitting it goes down.

    After you exercise or do cleaning take some time for yourself and do some relaxation to bring your anxieties and heart rate down maybe this will help calm your anxieties. 

    Just remember we ladies are in either peri menopause or menopause and when out heart rate is up due to any kind of movement it can throw us into anxiety because of our hormones being low. 

    Are you on any HRTs by the way or are you taking vitbs that can cause anxieties in people. I know they are suppose to be calming pills but they do have the side effects to where they can cause anxieties. 

    lol Xx take care and do some kind of relaxation or yoga to help with your anxieties

    Just wondered if you are keeping your blood sugar even. If I overdo it on a longish walk, gardening etc I tend to feel anxious, shakey and grumpy until I've refuelled.
