Ek gaap terwyl ek besig is om te oefen, dit kan tydens 'n kata of dans wees of daarna, as ek vir 'n oomblik rus en my beurt afwag. Ek is dan alreeds baie uitasem, soms hyg ek ook. Ek voel moeg, asof ek gaan omval van moegheid en moet gaan slaap. My oë voel soms ook of hulle wil toeval van moegheid.

Hi Flowers

I'm still pretty confused, to be honest - I'm really not sure why you would yawn during exercise - it's definitely not normal, although considering that you've been like this since you were 6, it's probably something you are almost getting used to. To feel tired and sleepy during exercise is definitely something that you could even consider seeing a doctor about - there are conditions that cause sudden sleep and drowsiness and they are all treatable using medication, and I would suggest looking into this at least.

Good luck
