Heart attack in runners

Common Questions and Answers about Heart attack in runners


Avatar n tn You should speak to your doctor to be certain but I believe the only thing they might tell you to be wary of is your heart rate. I think they say not to get your heart rate past a certain point. Other than that, being active during pregnancy is a great thing.

17567 tn?1276202029 the cholesterol is now cut in half to 130. I could probably still do better by shedding another few pounds but in hindsight doing these few things makes one feel good about one's self, sort of a self-positive-reinforcement!
Avatar n tn another panic attack ,mis afternoon.
Avatar f tn I think my husband had a mild heart attack early this morning (4 a.m.?). He had all the symptoms as I looked them up. He refused me to call 911 saying he thought he was ok. By 5:30 he felt well enough to rest, and sleep until 7. At 7 he said his chest was still hurting, but it was not a heart attack. He got dressed and left for work, saying he had a busy day and could not call in sick. I am freaking out b/c everything I read says you need treatment within 24 hours.

1742220 tn?1331356727 On the way there I knew everything about it would go wrong. in fact, I thought it would be some mean liberrian who would just tell me to go on line but it was this nice man, he was older maybe 60 .. idk ... and he was very smart, and kind. He took a lot of time with me and printed out a bunch of info and a short app. he was very apologetic because its cumbersome to be a volunteer. but I knew this, when I was out of work I tried to volunteer and it was so hard.
967168 tn?1477584489 maybe maybe not? I know how quirky EKG/ECG machines are so I'm really hoping this time it's a false reading. My Primary found a new murmur and I've been so sick for about 5-6 months; not feeling right, more winded than normal, major headaches, different types of chest pain than before and ALOT more fainting spells even with my ICD.
Avatar f tn I see people running and I envy them. For now I will walk at the pace that gets my heart rate up and sweat glands working. After the 45 minute walk at 3.5 mph on zero grade..haha..what a wimp..but I still got that euphoric feeling after...better than sitting!
Avatar n tn Dad in mayo for heart attack
Avatar m tn Six years ago I had a silent heart attack with an EF below 29%, and hospitilized with congested heart failure (breathing in dusty environment for several hours probably triggered the CHF) and I was feeling very well prior, but had a dry cough and shortness of breath. I recovered quickly and feel well to this day. If there has been an MI, by definition there is heart wall damage.

Avatar n tn I am not overweight, but I have been having some chest pain under lower left rib, plus a feeling of like a heart beat in my throat. A couple of years ago, I had some problems that led to my heart getting checked out, everything came back okay. I watch what I eat, try to limit the fat and cholestrol. My chol. level is fine, blood pressure runs normal to a little low 134/84 to 90/60. What could be these heartbeat feelings??
Avatar f tn Bad hyper episode. Couldn't sleep until 4am. Heart attack/panic attack feeling in morning. Call dr.
Avatar m tn In Europe the last year it´s been a couple of athletes who died during sport activities like soccer and hockey. Most of them not when we can asume the pulse is high instead when the pulse rate recover, like runners just finshed runnig, soccer players resting on the pitch. Ofc most of these tragic events happend because of underlying heart disease. But is there a higher risk for arrhythmia to occur during pulse rate recovery then it is during the activity? Thanks for a great site.
Avatar f tn I would like to run/walk a 5k. Any runners out there? I need a training schedule and ideas of how long to train. I walk 4 miles every day and currently walk a 13 minute mile. I am looking at a 5k 4 weeks from now and 8 weeks. I would like to do both, but will register for the later one if I need more time to train. I would like to step it up to some type of running, even if my time is quite slow.
Avatar f tn is it possible that im having heart attack??i dont feel any pain..im just afraid dying specially when i think of the people died in heart attack,..
Avatar n tn The problem is likely due to blood not returning to heart and can be caused by inactivity of the arm muscles and this would lead to swelling. It is not usual that runners carry and squeeze a soft ball. This prevents fluids to be trapped in the tissues. There can be an electrolyte imbalance: When electrolytes are kept in balance it helps prevent swelling in the tissues. Thanks for your question.
Avatar n tn I would say I am completely lost how hard physical work can cause a new or enlarged muscle to be established in the heart. People who do high intensity work, long distance runners and the like, do develop stronger than normal cardiovascular systems, including some enlargement and strengthening of the heart, I believe. This may be true of intense weight lifting too, i.e., hard and heavy lifting associated with work. None of this has in to my knowledge anything to do with heart problems.

Avatar f tn In 2000 I was doing some exercise and ended up at the hospital with a heart rate of well over 240 bpm and almost blacking out several times. I had the surgery the same year because At that time I had all intentions of making the military my career and didn't want this to stop me. The surgery seemed to go very well I do not remember experiencing any issues after my ablation until now. I am wondering if anyone else has now Been Diagnosed with a SEVERE Runners heart?

Avatar m tn failed my stress test and the cardiologist said there was no mistake that i had a heart attack likely in the past few months and it was a massive attack.
Avatar n tn I wonder if you are concerned about your HR because so many joggers and distance runners brag about their unusually low heart rates. When the people who talk about it are talking 50, 60, even lower, it's easy to fall into thinking yours is too high. Since surgery, I have been watching my vital signs gradually stabilize, and thinking HR wasn't keeping up, until I finally looked into norm data and figured out that my expectations were unrealistic for that reason.
Avatar f tn 30 am with symptoms of heart attack. Rapid heart rate, pain in chest, jaw, left arm and nausea. Went to ER. SVT, subsided with out intervention.
