I know I probably should get some professional expertise, but this should probably do for now.
I have this pain in my heart that bothers me, it feels like pinching and whenever I press my chest together it hurts even more. I’m a lifetime natural at 6.3/230 pounds I turned 20 yesterday and I’ve been competing in sports ever since I can remember.
A couple of years ago when I played Basketball (I played for 5 different teams simultaneously, averaging 4-5 games a week)I ended up in the hospital pretty quickly, they did some tests and it turned out that I suffered from a couple of heart rhytm disorders (extra beats and irregular beats) they advised me to take a chill pill for a while and I’ve been fine until a couple of months ago.
The thing is I haven’t even been working out properly so I don’t think its a matter of too much strain on my body. I have two ideas as to why I think this might be happening.
For starters, I always seem to train in spurts meaning I usually have periods of intense training followed by periods of doing nothing. So the sudden intensity after a period of inactivity might be too much on my heart?
Secondly, I’ve been sleep deprivated for almost three years now. On school days I average about 3-6 hours of sleep and on weekends and holidays/breaks it might be as much as 10-14 hours of sleep. Periods of mild insomnia coupled with hypersomnia doesn’t seem ideal?
The pain usually comes in the middle of a training session (which I believe probably is when a trainee peaks, physically?) my movements become slow and dull and I become really tired.
I am aware that the beforementioned suggestions are pretty bad and should be delt with regardless of pains or not since it’s not healthy, I am also aware that diet also plays a big role but as someone who just joined an MMA gym I would like to get some feedback or advice from someone with a similar experience.
