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

Anonymous 3632


was the breast thing serious?

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.

Anonymous 3664

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!

Good luck, anon!!

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.

Anonymous 3970


I'm glad you got it checked out! Take care and good luck!

Get a fucking ECG and do an exercise stress test lmao. What labs tests have you gotten done?

Anonymous 11267

I got a nuclear stress test back in 2018, maybe? They did find a "reversible perfusion defect". I remember the doctor that saw me wanted to give me a "cardiac catheterization" and "give me a stent", but it seemed so fucking suspicious to me. I remember the hospital nurse giving me a stern warning not to let anyone stick ANYTHING into my wrist, and like a day afterward here comes the heart doctor asking to do just that.

It doesn't help that said heart doctor didn't even listen to me about my symptoms at first (I had an entire diary on my phone chronicling my day to day symptoms – he didn't read it, and I don't have it anymore) and tried to write them off as ~anxiety~. He also refused my blood test (under the assumption that I "didn't need one lol too young xD"). This was after he suggested the cath btw.

And yeah, I've had ECG's, but they've all come back normal. It makes me wonder if there's not some sort of conspiracy to keep me in pain kek.

To add on to this, because I'm leaving out some stuff – from ordering tests on me (he had me wear a heart monitor and I just never got the results from that back) to sending his obviously untrained intern nurses to tell me shit, it just left a bad stain on my memory and made me sort of distrustful of doctors. I've been busy with school and stuff too.

I'm also reliant on medicaid so the number of doctors I can see is small.

All that being said, this semester wraps up soon, and I'm DEFINITELY gonna seek out doctors that don't suck cock to fix me. I'm tired of dealing with this pain, it's scary.

That sounds so shitty anon, I hope everything works out for you somehow

Been a long time for that chronic pain. Has it gotten any better? Is it getting worse? Does it fluctuate?
It’s sounding heart related, these are almost classic heart attack symptoms. But assuming no heart damage, it’s either your blood or your lungs. If not them, it’s your nervous system. A good doctor (WHICH I AM NOT PLEASE DO NOT THINK I AM A DOCTOR) would go through the list and attempt treatments for each.
There are a few theories I have. I AM NOT A DOCTOR:
1) pain is chronic and staying roughly the same
- possibly late-developing cystic fibrosis, maybe even a mild version. Can confirm with genetic testing. If your skin tastes salty, and you are coughing up mucus, that is a pretty good sign
- possibly an autoimmune disease presenting with anemia. Low blood counts would give similar sensations to decreased oxygenation of the blood. Autoimmune diseases can present anywhere from birth into your 30s, they can also present when the body is subjected to an infection or a shock (exercise after years of being sedentary).
- hormonal disorder. Your brain is not sending out correct chemicals to direct your body to give your blood enough oxygen or make enough blood.
2)fluctuating pain
- look at allergies. Can drop your blood count and oxygenation and vary daily based on environmental factors you can’t control. Allergies develop in the late teenage years for a lot of people.
3) worsening pain
- cancer is my first bet, can be detected with a CT scan if symptoms have been worsening for a long time. Could also be bone marrow cancer (multiple myeloma) which would not be detected on a CT unless it was very advanced. Would need a biopsy.

I have ideas for treatment but I am in no way shape or form a medical professional, so please don’t listen to me. I don’t want to tell you what medicines to take but talk to a doctor about Prednisone for suspect autoimmune disorder and anti-depressant for possible neurological disorder. Prednisone can fuck you up, but it can also be incredible. It may cause heart problems so please only take it under the direction of a doctor WHICH I AM NOT. BECAUSE IF YOU TAKE IT AND DIE I WILL FEEL REALLY BAD ABOUT IT IF AN ACTUAL DOCTOR DIDNT TALK TO YOU ABOUT IT.

>chest pain
>exercise context
>passed out
Sounds cardiac, if it has been getting worse/more frequent and your test showed coronary disease then probably unstable angina. Don't give up and go to the doctor again (another one). Get a stress ECG and 24h Holter if possible. I'd also ask for an echocardiography with Doppler to check on your valves. Some doctors are dicks and crooks, but you don't want to miss an important diagnosis. Valve stuff and arrhythmias can kill.
>I remember the hospital nurse giving me a stern warning not to let anyone stick ANYTHING into my wrist
Ignore anything nurses tell you, the super dumb ones have a tendency to tell patients the stupidest shit for some rason. You wouldn't believe the amount of scientifically inaccurate and downright mindblowingly stupid stuff I have heard nurses say to patients. If you really had an important coronary blockage you would need to have a revascularization, and it wouldn't be a nurse deciding that or taking responsibiliy for that decision either.

this pain will be four years old soon. going in for a lipid panel + cbc on monday, hopefully things are brought to light.

Anonymous 15631

jesus anon, i hope you feel better. dont be afraid to see other cardiologists if the one you have is untrustworthy

Anonymous 15694

okay so the doctor i saw was amazing. she was very kind and heard me out, and didn't deny my request for a blood test. the meds she gave me are helping a bit, and she assigned a few more based on my blood work (i have pretty high cholesterol) so yeah. she also recommended i see a gastrowhatever doctor. feels good to have a path to follow to getting better.

Anonymous 15738

Come on, nona, after 4 years, you must tell us what happened. What were the meds she prescribed? Since she said you should see a gastro, she is thinking you have gastroesophageal reflux?

Anonymous 16685

oh late, but the chest pain is still here lmao. gerd pills helped my gerd, i haven't been back yet to test my cholesterol levels again (but i've been taking my meds so…yeah), chest still aches. absolutely insane to think i've carried this pain all throughout university :(
