It will be the first time i post something here.
I just started doing some breathing qigong exercises a week ago and just 2 days ago I started feeling a strong conctration in my belly. Instead of getting a more relaxed sensation in the abdominal area, i now feel like if i'm carying a rock inside my stomach. I lost also a bit of energy, I'm feeling now quiet tired doing other simple tasks.
Because I believe this sensation has something to do with the breathing exercises, that i supose i've been doing wrongly, i stoped the exercises.
I realise now (by reading more about qigong) that i inhale more than i exhale, that means that i was filling my abdominal most i could, but i wasn't expelling and contracting my abdomen totally. Maybe is that!!
I have winter allergies (sneezing, itchy eyes, itchy neck), wich i believe indicates qi deficiency in the lungs, so I also tried to find something that could relate qigong or breathing techniques with symptoms, to find out proper exercises to myself. Anyway i could find anything relevant.
I don't know if anyone can help me understand more about it.
Thanks a lot
