Customer: replied 1 year ago.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.
Is this something new?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

no .probably for the last 3years

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.
Sounds hormonal and nothing too serious. Yard work is fine, even in the heat, so long as you stay hydrated with juices or Gatorade
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.
Yes--all hormonal but not anything too serious

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.
Stop thinking that way--that amount of work in someone your age doesn't cause a heart attack
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.
Of course.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.
I know but anyone who does that is going to have their heart rate go up
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

i know my question is first could so much exertion cause heart attack and second when it does go up i am afraid i will have arrytmia and die so there thats my fear

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.
No that kind of exertion won't cause a heart attack and you don't have anything like a serious arrhythmia so just take a deep breath and let go of your fears. Now it's time to close the page with a rating please.
