Im Ven and i am getting really anxious if i can still do a marathonn in less than a month.
To begin with, in April 2009, I was 25 when i underwent ecg as requirement before having my gallbladder removed. The cardiologist who cleared me said that he only cleared me because i had to undergo a surgery but i need to visit him after i recuperate...which i didnt follow
In 2011-2012, I was having difficulties in breathing, had palpitations, light-headedness, shaky hands, weak left hand and excruciating chest pain. I finally went for a check-up and underwent ecg, 24hr holter and stress test. My ecg result showed that i have sinus arryhthmia, PAC and PVC. Sadly, i was not able to keep my stress test and holter results. After the tests, i did not go for a f/up which i regeret now.
Presently, I am 33 years old, I am training for a marathon and this is my first full mary and i need to secure a medical certificate by next week since the event will be on the 19th of feb.
Last Wednesday, a local cardiologist told me that he will not give me medication yet (this maybe is the reason why im getting anxious..i mean..do i have to medicate?)..i did show him my ecg result from feb 2012..but i only told him that i have palpitations...sometimes i get exhausted and i have no difficulty in breathing.. Moving forward, i underwent ecg and 2decho..and will get the result and f/up in 2 days.
While waiting for that day, i am hoping someone who is familiar with my situation can give me any advice. I would greatly appreciate it
