Help: Chest Pain and Missed Heart Beats when running.

Post by Joh » Sun, 27 Oct 2002 07:00:37


Anybody got any ideas about this one?
I'm a 41 Year Old, 12st, experienced runner, resting heart beat 50. I
train 7 days a week. Distances between 3 and 6 miles. Been running
since a ***ager. I know that I will ultimately visit the doctor with
this on. I've never had anything like this happen before and there is
no evidence of Heart problems in my family.
The last 3 days the exact same thing has happened to me. I set off
steady (7:30 mile pace). I have a Heart Monitor collecting stats every
5 seconds. At around the same point during the run (3/4 mile), I get a
sudden chest pain on the left side. I have to stop running immediately
and walk slowly. The pain immediately goes away. If I start jogging
the pain starts again as my heart beat rises. This next bit really
freaked me when I realised what was happening. When back home I
checked the Heart Monitor (Polar S610). My heat beat rises steadily to
high 160s then suddenly DROPS to 85-90 for 5-10 seconds and then back
up to 160s. The first day that this happened, I thought it might have
been because the chest belt might have slipped. But as I have said,
this exact phemomenon has happened 3 days running. Any comments
greatfully welcomed.

I know you're posting from the UK, with socialized medicine and all, but in my
opinion you would be acting VERY irresponsibly not to see a CARDIOLOGIST about
this one.  As helpful as some members of this NG may try to be, you could die
if you don't get a heart specialist's diagnosis.  -- Best of luck to you!  --

Dude,
Listen to Counsel on this one, he's right on target.

This is Saturday.  If you haven't dropped in on your friendly cardiologist
as an emergency walk in by now, you are into testosterone induced
denial.    Don't wait for Monday's office hours, and don't go loping
around the neighborhood in the meantime to see if you can 'run it off'.

If you have a wife, tell her exactly what you told us.  If she has any
backbone she will nag you until you show up at the doctor's door or,
better yet, drag you there kicking and screaming.

You might post this over on sci.med.cardiology and let those folks have a
whack at it if you don't believe what you have read here.  But I'd do that
posting after you see YOUR doc first.

As a runner and former cardiac care RN, my advice is to STOP RUNNING and see
a cardiologist.  This could be serious.

It seems to me I heard somewhere that SPeacock wrote in article

As one who reads both newsgroups *and* as one who has been kicked in the
solar plexus by a heart attack, I urge you to follow the advice:  get to
a cardiologist as quickly as you can get to one.
