The Heart Beats So Fast That It Is Difficult To Breathe During Exercise?
Hi Doctor, I am a young boy aged 17 years. So I want to ask about the difficulty of doing activities such as people and others related to the physical. So, for example, when I was sports at school, I had just run 2 rounds of volleyball court, my heart was beating very fast, followed by a gasp or shortness of breath, and if I forced it it would get louder like irregular and after I stopped I would feel dizzy. Is this normal or is it related to weak heart symptoms? thank you
Hello Nur Ihsan, thank you for the question for HealthReplies.com
The symptoms you feel can be caused by many reasons, not always due to a problem with the heart. The following are some of the possible causes of your symptoms:
A body that is less fit due to lack of regular exercise
Excessive physical activity and lack of sleep and lack of rest
Anemia or low red blood cells
Thyroid hormone disorders
Heart disorders, such as heart valve disorders, congenital heart disease, heart failure, heart rhythm disorders
Pulmonary disorders, such as pulmonary hypertension, pulmonary fibrosis, lung infections, asthma, COPD
Other chronic diseases such as chronic infectious diseases, autoimmune diseases, diabetes, cancer, kidney or liver problems
Chronic fatigue syndrome or chronic fatigue syndrome, which is a condition in which a person experiences extreme fatigue that is not caused by any specific disease
Fibromyalgia, which is a condition characterized by pain in the muscles and bones which is often accompanied by fatigue, sleep disturbances, memory problems, mood disorders.
Psychological disorders, such as depression, anxiety, excessive stress, etc.
It's a good idea to see your doctor directly so that you can do further evaluation of your condition. The doctor can ask more details about the symptoms you are experiencing, your medical history, medical history in your family, your lifestyle, and so on. Doctors can also perform direct physical examinations and other necessary supporting examinations, for example blood tests, ECG (heart record), echocardiography (heart ultrasound), chest X-rays, and so on.
The following are some things you can do:
Try to get enough sleep and rest every day
Eat a balanced nutritious diet regularly, maintain an ideal body weight
Do regular exercise, at least 20-30 minutes every day, adjust the intensity to your ability
Avoid excessive stress
Avoid consumption of alcohol and other illegal drugs
So much information from me, hopefully it can be answered
