When I'm feeling quite happy and stub my toe, the feeling of happiness quickly goes away as if my brain has been flooded with a negative version of endorphins. This can last quite a while and it is hard to get back into a happy mood even when the pain subsides.

So is there a negative version of endorphins? Or exactly how do the endorphins dispaear when you stub your toe?

    You may want to search for some article about endorphins, using the terms, like endorphin antagonists. Then you can ask what remains unclear. – Jan Nov 18 '19 at 15:09
