Am having so many tests ,so far 3 xrays,ct scan and 2ecg's,am hoping 2 find out in the coming week.The way l am at the moment ,reminds me when l was in Nepal in 1992 walking 220miles in 4weeks ,from Lukla airfield to Everest base camp and back; it was all high altitude and breathing was difficult,as l am experiencing now. I just want to go to sleep all the time.lncidently that's how l met my wife on the trip of a lifetime.l can't wait to get sorted out,so l can get back to running;Thankyou Ofloss,Stevy.

I'm sorry to hear it is a bit tough at the moment. I have been running for 4 years but really started to learn to run 8 years ago. Just the first couple of weeks highlighted the fact I had an overactive thyroid and had to have radiation treatment for it. I still firmly believe looking back at that time it was great that I found out the health issues that I had and got them sorted and without running it would of gone unnoticed and it would of impacted my health without me realising. Being in control and getting to the bottom of health issues is always preferable. Wishing you a speedy resolution and recover. Take care Rfc x.

Hi Stevy, Sorry to hear this. I had some heart issues at the beginning of the year that were triggered by the Christmas period I think, and/or stress/anxiety, and it was a worrying time (this was after a period where I hadn't run for a few months). I had a constantly irregular heartbeat for about 2 months that would flutter a few times a minute. Then, when I started running again, it got better pretty quickly. Listen to your doctors, I don't know what your situation is, but I hope you can get back to running again soon enough.

Hi stevy . Good to hear from you but sorry you're still having tests & not quite tickety-boo. I hope you can keep a positive outlook and focus on things you can do. Maybe you can keep flexible with some gentle stretching to help ease you back into running when the time is right?

Stevy, I am so sorry to hear youre going through such difficult times. It breaks my heart to hear of the loads that some people have to bear. You are both under so much pressure and it does take its toll in some form or another .

I really hope that your Doctor gets to the bottom of it and gives you the okay to start gently running again . You and your wife are in our thoughts .

Stay strong and hang on in there xxx
