No response in the Surf Doc forum, so....

How fast do endorphins kick in?

If you read my posts in the SurfDoc section you know I've been diagnosed with a congenital heart condition called a myocardial bridge. My lower anterior descending artery (ominously known as "the widow maker") has a bit of heart muscle over it which constricts circulation in the systolic phase of the heartbeat.

My symptoms are mild and happen (not always) when I run. Within a couple minutes of running I
I will feel chest tightness. In a couple more minutes it goes away. For some reason I've never noticed it surfing.

My cardiologist says the fact that it goes away is a mystery. Another cardiologist suggested that maybe endorphins mask the pain.

Could endorphins kick in in a matter of minutes to mask pain in such a targeted area???

My symptoms are minor, but one of the effects of a myocardial bridge is "sudden death during exercise." drowning It kind of sucks having that looming over you when you do the things you love to do.

Hormesis is your friend.

Heat shock and cold shock proteins.

I would quit the long distance running.

I would also do abdominal massages up under the rib cage.

It's going to take me awhile to digest the NIH article on Hormesis....but sounds like long distance or prolonged exercise is not a good thing for me....

I mean do I want you to die doing something you love like drujnk said...

like, I don't want you to die, but I guess if you had to die then, yeah, I'd
want you to die doing something you love because maybe that's a better
death.

you know what I mean?

You have to be careful when you high jack the pleasure principle.

I do it all the time.

But I'm pretty careful.

The best way to feel healthy pleasure is to endure some pain but not so much that it leads to break down.
