I already exercise as much as I’m physically able (which is still not as much as I’d like, but I’m balancing physical stress with a not-very-healed colon). The issue is very situational — specifically, leaving the house—and it has not mattered how much exercise I get in in a day because it’s the leaving that triggers the response.
Beta blockers work by thwarting norepinephrine, primarily, which causes the fight-or-flight responses, including GI symptoms. Without the rush and wane of stress hormones I should in theory be able to better regulate my mental response because the feedback loop of stress-symptoms-more stress-more symptoms is interrupted.
I understand. I hope it works for you.
