Thalassemia: Is this my goodbye to martial arts?
so, the past few weeks i've been training again since my hamstring has healed up. however, after every training session i would find myself absolulty exausted in a not good way. i would get increadably dizzy in the showers, have problems breathing. it seemed like no matter what i did, i couldn't get my breath back.
so, i went to the doctor and was diagnosed with thalassemia. he was really suprised i haven't been in earlier. he has recomended that i stop MAs and take up something else like swimming or yoga.
problem is, i'm in a mcdojo contract. decent enough sport TKD school, but contracted none the less.
hopefully my instructor will be cool and let me go. it sucks bad enough my MA days are pretty much over.
