Is it possible that the difference that you were noticing was a decrease in your immune system instead? I did some reading early on trying to decide if I could continue exercising or not as I was concerned about
the effects on the immune system. In the end I decided that there was a sweet spot, for me at least, in which I would get the benefits (reduced inflammation, an energy boost and a modest reduction in pain) of moderate exercise - the key seemed to be doing it consistently otherwise the drop in the immune system from strong/excessive or sporadic exercise would out weigh everything.
I wish I could remember the details of everything I read but once I made my decision brain fog took care of all those pesky details.
