Long-term side effect make living hard

10 years ago after I suffered from Sudden Cardiac Arrest and was without oxygen for 11 minutes, I woke up from my medical induced coma with little visual side effects. I was able to breath, talk, and walk within my 11 day hospital stay. When I got home I would suddenly lose strength in my legs and arms after I woke up. When I talked to my doctor they sent me to a neurologist. After a few tests, I was told they didn't know what was wrong and since they couldn't do an MRI because I have an ICD there was nothing they could do.

Running a Marathon Can Increase Cardiac Strain in Amateur Runners

Study Highlights:

  • Amateurs running full-length marathons could be significantly raising levels of several key biomarkers of cardiac strain.
  • Levels of two proteins – troponin I and troponin T– were highest after runners completed a full marathon compared to a half marathon, and a 10K race, as were other biomarkers of cardiac stress.

DALLAS, December 3, 2018 —Full marathons may significantly raise concentrations of several biomarkers of strain on the heart, according to new research in Circulation, Journal of the American Heart Association.
