I am a board certified US internist and have advanced training in cardiology.
I can help you with this and follow ups.
Yes running can cause this. It can happen most often in marathon runners.
High blood pressure.
Other problems as well, such as valve disease.
It does happen in those who run long distances. Echo is needed.
OK. If you have further questions or details, use reply to expert.
Otherwise please choose a positive rating . But, still come back if you need to…think of something later, etc. Bonuses are appreciated.
My blood pressure is not high, and I went in for a routine physical. If I had valve disease, would something show up in my blood work or with my chest xray or stress test? And, I assume I would have known if I had some type of viral infection. I am just concerned I have a serious condition now! Can they determine from the echo if it is from exercise? And, if it is from that, do I have to stop exercising?!
