Pain in center chest while lifting weights of 1 to 2 kg. I am 20, male. How to treat this symptom? Is there any cardio problem?

Pain in center chest while lifting weights of 1 to 2 kg. I am 20, male. How to treat this symptom? Is there any cardio problem?

Pain with walking ?: 2 kg seems relatively light. If you get chest symptoms with fast walking or prolonged walking then this would be consistent with cardiac nature. If not then it could be related to sternum where the rib cage attaches in the front of the chest and this is a condition called costochondritis and is usually off to the sides of the sternum. ...Read more

37 M echo stress 2015 all good. Play 2.5 hrs/week. Heart rate stays above 90 for few hrs after playing. Worried of cardio problems. EKG fine. Worried.

37 M echo stress 2015 all good. Play 2.5 hrs/week. Heart rate stays above 90 for few hrs after playing. Worried of cardio problems. EKG fine. Worried.

All StressTests ONLY: detect complications (artery narrowing clots) of advanced disease (decades after onset). EKG's miss artery disease until enough heart muscle damage to finally show (most sensitive EKG sign=QRS prolongation >80ms). Thus both of little value. Best=focus on Ds drivers: Choose LCHF foods, optimize NMR lipoproteins (LDL-P ≤500, Large HDL-P ≥10), HbA1c ≤5.0%, SBP ≤120, do not smoke & study my answers. ...Read more

Cardio triggres extreme sinus problems. What doctor can help? Been to allergy clinic n sinus doctor n both said im ok. I love cardio, who can help?

Cardio: If you mean your nose gets plugged up when you do a treadmill jogging or roving for a cardio exercise then it is unlikely to be an allergy but probably a vasomotor reaction. This is a regulatory neurological response to nasal tissue and sometimes intranasal steroids can help. If the response is severe enough, the sinus may also be involved. ...Read more

Get evaluation: It was probably benign PVCs as you suspect, however ectopic beats during exercise can be concerning. You should have a stress test or other cardiac evaluation if you haven't in the last few years. How do you know they were PVCs? Versus something more concerning? ...Read more

I get so fast heart rate after minimal cardio exercising that I have to stop. Can you please tell me how to overcome this problem?

Fitness evaluation: If you have symptoms with exercise that you think are abnormal, you should see your doctor to make sure you are otherwise healthy (not anemic, no evidence of systemic disease, etc.) Then, if that is all normal, consider having a fitness evaluation that includes an exercise test to see what your response is to incremental exercise. A common cause is simply being out of shape. ...Read more

I have had 4 straight ekg's state old septal infarct. Cardio wrote borderline EKG crossed out abnormal. I can bodybuild and run no problems.

Trust a human: Ekg's get read first by "artificial intelligence", which isn't anywhere as good as a perseon who knows anything. This pathologist has seen several machine-read ekg's that diagnose infarcts that just weren't there, period. If your cardiologist is good with your being an athlete, then ignore the robot-reader's nonexistent old mi. ...Read more

And if shows up a nuclear pet scan and there is no blockage after a cardio cat. What could be done to prevent problems(heart attack, or worse?

Good diet & exercise: Your PET scan shows no trouble today (good!) but don't confuse medical tests with a crystal ball (as many folks do) — they're not able to predict the future. To assure continued good health, you must minimize your risk factors: no smoking, normal weight, daily exercise, no recreational drugs esp cocaine/amphetamines, minimal alcohol. ...Read more

What medications could be used for rage and anger problems? I do cardio and weight lifting, I eat healthy. Thearpy was temporary fix, it doesn't do any

SuchMeds DoNot Exist: Anger & Rage are mind issues & thus must be dealt with at that level. As integrated Soul? Mind? Brain? Body creatures, each portion plays a major role. Meds only affect us at Brain? Body levels & never solve causes; thus are called treatment (to alter behavior). Since most memories (mind issues) are deeply internalized & emotions always dominate, only going into basis for emotions can find solutions. ...Read more

I'm an on & off user of meth for 17yrs. Now I had a balance problem while walking though I don't fall. Cardio says im ok. Cud it be a brain damage?

Need neurology visit: Given your symptoms it would seem that you need to schedule an appointment with the neurologist. The neurologist should be able to give you any idea whether it has something to do with brain damage. There's also a possibility that it could have something to do with inner ear problems in which case the neurologist may refer you to an ENT doctor. Best wishes. By the way, please see a substance-abuse counselor for help with your crystal meth issues. ...Read more
