ADD's Relationship w/ Exercise

Hi, first post here.

I've recently been diagnosed ADD by my psychiatrist. Prior to this, I've been unable to exercise for years, because afterwards I feel tense and anxious all day, experience insomnia that night, and sweat during the brief sleep I get that evening.

I asked my general Doctor recently if she had any idea why this may be occurring. She asked "have you ever been diagnosed ADD?" She attributes it to the excess adrenaline people with ADD have.

Has anyone experienced this, and are there ways around it? I really need to begin exercising again.

I'm grateful for any and all replies. Thanks

I cannot really tell, ust that exercise even if mild, might be of help to you. Even i need to catch up on that. How about walking? Many choose that as it is not so demanding on time and energy, or tai chi perhaps.

Muscle heat can cause you to sweat.
