I had a CAD about 8 weeks ago, i was at work and had what I THOUGHT WAS A MIGRAINE, I collapsed and was admitted to hospital where a CAD was diagnosed with 100% blockage, I had a tia and no damage. I was put on asprin blood preasure meds. I had a bad headache for about a week after hospital. But have returned to running 3 miles a day 6 days a week and 3 miles on the rower, my aim is to get super fit and try to bump start my bodies ability to heal itself. Doctor said it was fine to exercise whilst the consultantat at hospital said i should take it easy and not run. So not sure what to do. I feel much better after my runs and it really drops my BP and makes me relaxed so that has to be good. No headaches or other symptons and iam feeling better than before teh CAD. I had another scan a few weeks ago and iam waiting to see the consultant next week, Iam hoping that I can get some better advice on exercise limits.
I agree with everyone at 46 This was the last thing I expected, Iam very fit and this has been a real shock. But we all have to fight it dont give up!
