I was diagnosed with Exercise Induced Asthma in early May, and towards the end of the summer this was re-evaluated by my doctor who thinks that I have other triggers as well such as pollen (I have other allergies to seafood and tomoatoes for which I carry an epi-pen) and possibly more.
I've been very active / sports oriented my whole life and have been training with my local Boxing Club for the last couple of years. At the time of diagnosis I was also training for a sprint distance triathlon, which I completed June 3rd without too many problems. Since then however I seem to have deteriorated rapidly. I cannot seem to run for more than about 5 minutes and punching seems to force all the air out of my lungs whilst I also get pain in my head when punching too hard.
Last night after a boxing / circuit training session I returned home and about 30 minutes after finishing the session became very light headed and physically couldn't stop shaking for about another 2 hours. Is that something that anyone else has experienced?
I'm going to book in with my doctor for another review but though I'd get some opinions from others who deal with this on a daily basis. I need to get on top of this as I want to do the triathlon again in 2012 but at the moment it just doesn't seem possible.
