Hey guys, I think there is something wrong with me, and im wondering if any of you can relate, or help me out. So, I have been training and sparring for 6 years now, so im definitely used to all the motions, and getting hit and all that stuff. The thing is, when i spar against someone who is my level or better, an i know will challenge me, I end up getting extremely nervous, and a huge adrenaline rush. This goes on from the car ride to the gym, and until im done sparring. It feels like im terrified to step in there and i get a fight or flight response whenever i spar hard. After about 4 rounds, im not physically tired, but because of fear or adrenaline or whatever it is, i always come close to puking, and have to stop sparring. Once i stop, my throat somewhat closes up and im shaky. I dont know whats causing this, if its anxiety or im just a pussy. This has been making me so depressed lately because all i want to do is fight, i cant continue because of this shit. I asked my coach, my doctor and friends, and none of them know for sure what it is. I know its not tiredness or body shots, so im thinking it has to be anxiety. If anyone has anything similar and knows how to deal with it, it would be greatly appreciated, because right now, ive just given up on life because with this "condition" i cant see myself fighting.
