But seriously, I had my doubts over the diagnosis I had been given. My cardiologist just told me that people who train ~10 or so hours a week present very differently on ECG and echocardiogram to ‘normal’ people. And the key marker of a heart attack (Troponin) is generally elevated after endurance exercise and cardiologists are not sure why.
Always get a second opinion.
Sports cardiologist said I was misdiagnosed. Likely I have an ‘athletes heart’, low blood pressure (90/45), low heart rate ~48, and potentially something called Atrial Fribrillation which is super common. The bonus is I CAN CYCLE AGAIN! And buy myself a little ECG machine to try and catch one of these little heart flutters.
