Let’s start with the basic thing that everybody should know. Chest pains during exercise are not normal. You must always consult a doctor if you are experiencing any discomfort near the general chest area during moderate and even heavy exercises. Now the fact of the matter is that you may feel fatigued and heart rates increasing during exercising and this is normal. However, if you feel something out of the ordinary like a sharp pain, a sudden loss of energy accompanied by chest pains, a sensation of losing consciousness any anything that is of great discomfort, you must stop doing that exercise right then and there and have a seat and ask your loved one to take you to a doctor. This blog only illuminates medical possibilities and must not be taken as concrete medical advice, which only your physician is permitted to give you after examining you physically. Now having that out of the way, let’s look at a few reasons why can or are having chest pains during exercise.
Myocardial infarction (heart attack) –
This is one of the most common causes of chest pains and is quite serious. A heart attack occurs when there is a blockage in the coronary arteries that carry oxygenated blood to the heart. If untreated can deprive oxygen to the heart eventually killing the person. Heart attack symptoms can include pain in the back area and the jaw, as well as the chest and other areas of the upper body. The pains can be recurring or continuous. Other symptoms may include a feeling of pressurization of the chest area, sweating, nausea, dizziness, anxiety and suffocation. If you begin to experience any of these symptoms individually or in a combination, we suggest you head to the emergency room and seek immediate medical attention because a heart attack can seem dangerous and fatal but timely medical intervention can save the person.
Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy or HCM –
This is a common occurrence and can affect nearly any age group and BMI group of people. This generally occurs because of the enlargement of the heart muscles which may cause the ventricle walls to thicken. HCM can also occur when pressure is exerted on the ventricles when the when wall between the sides of the heart grows. In the case of HCM, a person may experience dizziness, suffocation, a sense of fainting and course chest pain. We advise immediate medical attention.
Angina or angina pectoris –
This is often confused with a heart attack because the symptoms are quite the same but less intense. Angina occurs when the heart is not receiving a steady flow of blood. Angina symptoms may include a feeling of tightening of the arms and jaw, suffocation, nausea and fatigue. We advise that the person should always seek immediate medical attention when they are experiencing such symptoms and must sit out heart pain because it could be fatal, especially with the rising number of heart attacks among people in a much lower age group.
Chest injuries –
These are caused by injuries to injuries to the chest muscles because of overuse of the muscle a subsequent injury of the chest muscles. This is caused when a person changes their work routine abruptly and subsequently put in a subsequently greater effort near the muscle strains of the heart. The symptoms of chest injuries include sharp pains and swelling in the region of the heat, the patient may also experience pain during movement and sometimes this injury is visible outside as well. The person experiencing this is advised to take a rest and stop exercising and then consult a doctor.
this is the only reason which is not related to the heart and is related to the lungs, an equally important organ. Asthma is primarily caused due to a block in the airways of the lungs and this occurs when the airways of the lungs start to tighten up due to certain trigger responses and inhaling foreign objects. And this causes symptoms that are quite similar to that of heart attacks and angina pectoris and many confuse asthma attacks with heart attacks. The common symptoms include tightness of breath and suffocation, fatigue and nausea.
Now these were a few of the common reasons for experiencing chest pain during exercise and most of these are caused due to irregular exercise patterns and bad habits that people follow in their day to day lives and we can agree on the fact that people do not always have the right to take care of themselves and that is why they exercise but a lot of the time this factors for causing heart pain is quite affordable because a proper exercise in structure and a fitness coach then understand the level to which A person should be pushed and not more because going out of the ordinary in a short span of time can cause these issues.
