Chest pain after running accident, could it be serious?

Posted , 2 users are following.

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

please help me

    Hi caeness7, geesh, that was quite a run you had...I have to admit, I thought you were joking with the details leading up to when you fell into the ditch and screamed out in pain.  Glad you made it out of that ditch and to be safe I think you should see a doctor to have those symptoms checked out.  Hearing your heart beat when laying down is normal although not always pleasant (happens to me), but just change your position and try slow deep breathing to help relax and help slow down your heart rate if it's very fast.  I do quite a bit of deep breathing and over time it seems to really help for a rapid heart rate.  I wish you good health and once you see a doctor I think you'll feel better.  Good luck...smile  PS:  I've learned that many symptoms we worry about or have are related to anxiety and fear and tingling in the hands is one i get when anxious...shake your hands and try washing them under warm water, put some hand lotion on and then just keep occupied...once you stimulate your hands you'll soon feel better...try not to worry..smile  Panic attacks can cause all those symptoms, but still you should talk to your doctor or find one...

      Hi caeness7, how are you feeling ?  First, I am not a Doctor and I do think you should see your primary care doctor or see an emergency room doctor and explain what happened and give all your symptoms...it's better to rule out things and only a doctor can medically rule out certain things like something being heart related.   See a doctor and you'll feel better...Good luck and feel better...smile

    Okay Caeness7, I hope so too, but in the United States you should be able to get treatment at a hospital whether you have insurance or not I believe...you may want to just google it or call the hospital who may even have a clinic where people without insurance can get treated..I ofcourse wish you the best...take it easy until then...all the best...smile
