Heart or Neurological problem in a healthy sprinter?
Yesterday when sprinting i collapsed, vomited, and started having convulsions, i lost the ability to speak and the convulsions got worse, this lasted for several hours and i was hospitalized for it. This was after only 2, 100m sprints. WHATS GOING ON??
How are you? Was this the first time you had the convulsions and collapse? What diagnostic tests were done? This could indeed be due to variety of issues, more importantly that of neurological for the convulsions and cardiac for the syncope. These should be ruled out with further evaluation and referral to neurologist. Not until the cause is identified, try to refrain from strenuous activities. Take care and do keep us posted.
