I have been very athetic my entire life. Recently, I have become dizzy, and exhausted during a few workouts. Now, just to explain the lase occurrence, I did fine during most of the workout, for 20 minutes. But, I went back and did some heavy bag work. I could not catch my breath, and my right eyeball hurt. When walking, I felt week, faint, tired, dizzy, etc. I sat down for 20 minutes, before leaving. I also drank and AMP energy drink before beginning. About a half hour after the workout, my BP was 166/97 with a hr of 133. I took my BP every 20 minutes, and it slowly went down, but it took and hour and 15 minutes for it to return to my norm of 124/84...but the HR will still high 110.
I think that I have Exercised Induced HTN. I wonder what the role that energy drinks have in this. I love to be athletic, and I don't want to quit, but, I also enjoy living. So, I have a few questions.
Is there a way to stay on top of this and continue to be athletic? How much can an energy drink like AMP of Redbull have in this? What type of follow up would you consider most advisable? Do Beta's do a good job handling all of this? Does ablation over a viable option for someone who want to remain safe and athletic?
Any help or suggestions, would be most welcome. Thanks!View Thread
