I know a lot of people are diagnosed with Asthma, due to various allergens and I'd like some advice and maybe share some experiences. At the moment I am training for the TKDI World championships (I'm with the TAGB) so I've really stepped up the training. I'm feeling fitter than ever. I will need to fight continuously for x2 2 minute rounds and i know fitness is probably my weakness. The most annoying part, is that actually it's not fitness that is my weakness, it's asthma. For those who don't have it, here are my symptoms: - get out of breath very quickly - very heavy loud shallow breathing - At worse throat closes up and whatever you breathe in makes no difference - At even worse you start panicking because you can't breathe - I also get really emotional and start to cry - I get really frustrated because I wish my lungs would work properly - This makes me more emotional, which in turn makes the asthma worse :| So I am getting really frustrated because I feel like I can't do my best, or that everyone else is going on and I'm struggling, and i look like I am unfit when I am not. It really varies from time to time, and i was always told that running and sprinting and basically physical exercise is triggers my symptoms it's only becoming a serious issue now that I have the Worlds coming up. I suppose now would be a good time to start taking the brown pump again every day, because it got better and i didn't need to do that anymore. Anyone got the same problem? Got any advice?
