Brief Answer:
Yes, related

Detailed Answer:
Dear Ms, I have gone through your question and I understand your concerns but unfourtanetly this is related to exhausting yourself while working out . intense work out interfere with the digestive system function as it draws blood away from it , this is the cause of decreased apetite and naseau
Also working out hard can cause dehydration which can be the cause of your chills , headache and dizziness .
the body ache is due to muscle fatigue or strain.
I would recommend that you keep yourself hydrated with enough fluids daily ( at least eight cups ), take an analgesic as ibuprofen tablets for body aches and take metoclopramide for the naseau . I hope I answered your question.
