I haven't been on the site in a while, been very busy. I'm having some nasty symptoms during and after an intense run. I feel it building up slowly during the run, when I hit a half mile I have to slow down and walk for 30 seconds, I then start running again and finish out the mile which consists of steady inclines and declines.
My best time is 7:33. Today was 8:03 and I nearly had to lay down in my drive way when I got back to the house. Was coughing up thick fluid shit and wheezing, had chest pain on my top right side of chest, heart, lung area, also have tightness pain going up right side of my neck, I had to hit my chest in that area a couple times as I felt pressure there, it just felt better I guess, it felt real tight like it was clogged up or something.
My cholesterol is horrible 6 months ago before I started running it was 275 total and LDL was 208!!! 190 is very high for LDL so I know lifestyle changes needed to be made. High cholesterol runs in the family along with, heart disease, diabetes etc.
I have been taking red yeast rice along with cholesterol support by NOW Foods, that red yeast rice is no joke thats for sure had to back it down to a cap morning and night.
Basically I am looking for suggestions or if anyone has dealt with these symptoms personally. I know somethings not right obviously, just looking for some answers. I'm going to see a cardiologist this coming week, this shits got me scared to be honest.
Just got bloods done yesterday, hepatic, lipid, and the other panel can't remember. Waiting for results to come in.
Also wanted to add my blood pressure at rest is around 120-130 over 60-70 range.
