I have asthma but I have a very strange form of it. First it is excersise induced so it only happens when I move my arms about / chest in lots of stress. So I've been doing cardio and crunches and went to my first JKD / Kajukenbo class. I did all the drills but when it came to grappling I made it through the submission locks but when it came to riding the mount I could only go half the duration. Now I stopped MA and everything else because my particular asthma makes my arms go tingly I get disoriented and then ultimately I either throw up or pass out. I HATE it... I can't stress hate enough the feelings my body gives me are so evil I'd rather wake up every morning with a hang over to avoid the shaking the cloudy mind and the pacing with anxiety until I finally hit the bathroom. So I go to my doctor I get preventitive asthma medication. I then get an emergency inhaler. I've beent taking the premetitive stuff for a few days and tonight I had to take my emergency inhaler. Still it wasn't enough and by the end of class I'm in the bathroom with the sifu asking me what is wrong. I don't know what to do ... I dont' want to stop again but it seems like facing this isn't working either. For example I can run 10 miles in a day just fine but 2 minutes an 30 seconds of boxing and I'm in the bathroom. I will go back to the doctor but I fear this may once again end my MA dreams. *sighs* Trying to be positive. --Infy.
