chest pain after running, could it be serious? Anonymous 3629
(reposting from anothet site)
So basically four days ago, I
-went for a short, brisk run
-everything was fine while I was running
-but after like a minute of rest i:
-felt a tightness in my chest
-hearing faded out
-vision faded away
-legs so weak i can barely walk (fell in the ditch, on the road)
-an intense pain all over my body (so bad i had to yell)
-tightness/heat in my scalp
i ran once for 4 minutes and felt fine, took a moment to just walk, then ran again for 4 minutes and after the second run the incident occured. started to feel better after i fell down for the third time and just laid there.
i'm 5'7, 146 pounds, 18 years of age. female. my lifestyle is very sedentary. i'll admit i was dressed inappropriately for the jog (like boots + a face mask) . also i don't smoke and i'm not taking any meds.
only asking because my chest still hurts. it burns a bit, and i have had difficulty breathing. my chest has been hurting constantly since the incident, not enough to keep me from walking around and talking (tho i prefer to be laying down). sometimes i get dizzy.
here are random sypmtoms i jotted down last night
>my chest has felt cool
>my chest has ached (twice)
>my hands have felt tingly
>hard to breathe, like i haven't got enough air
>a balloon in my chest
>for a few seconds periodically i have felt a clenching sensation
>my chest has felt warm afterwards
>have felt a tightness in my lower belly
>when breathing in it felt tight
>when i lay down i can feel my heart beating sometimes
>also i felt cold, but there was no sweat
what say you, /hb/?
i'm guessing it's not heart related because the pain is constant.
also the pain isn't so bad that i can't walk around and talk, i just get woozy occasionally.
I think you should see a doctor asap.There are so many things and it's hard to put a finger on a single point(like is it heart related?blood?lungs?something about your liver?or was it a just one time thing?)Best thing to do would be going to a doc.Also never ever forget to ask if you have something in family.I had a mysterious ache under my left breast for a long time and noone could find out what was it(i was really sure it had something to do with my heart or lungs),later i found out that my mothers side had a thing going on affecting breasts (they mostly had an ache around left side too),and i did too.
Had you eaten before? What’s your diet like in general?
Please see a doctor before exercising again. But also please invest in trainers etc, running in boots made me cringe because the shock on your feet/legs/etc… argh.
Update us when you’ve made an appointment and shit? I’m curious
was the breast thing serious?>>3631
planning to schedule an appointment tomorrow for thursday (or earlier, whenever medicaid goes through)
as for my diet, i sparingly ate junk + regular meals here and there. and i hadn't had anything to eat before the run
and i haven't eaten a lot since like…thursday maybe? apart from small, balanced meals. my appetite has been low.
went to the doctor last thursday, he referred me to a cardiologist. don't know when i'll be able to see the guy ( because medicaid still hasn't gone through, i can't afford a stress test / echocardigram up front ) but…yeah. hoping it's nothing serious. praying and all that.
thanks for reading my blog!
I hope you'll end up okay, anon.
i've got an appointment on the 17th!
hoping i don't arrive at the office & get told there's an issue with payment. or sth awful like heart issues
i guess this'll be the last post i make here –
got a nuclear stress test & they detected a small amount of blockage / plaque in a lower artery. the nurse told me it's totally reversible, i'll have to take meds + improve my diet & lifestyle.
depending on how much of the artery has been blocked i may have to get a stent, praying this isn't the case.
I'm glad you got it checked out! Take care and good luck!
coming back to blog because it's been two fucking years
i have had unending chest pain 24/7 since this shit went down. doc turned out to be a crook
gonna try getting a blood test fuck fuck fuck
holy shit anon im so sorry keep us updated
