So it looks like I will be taking two weeks off from working out. Sunday I woke up with a tightness in my chest I have never felt before, as the day went on it got worse to the point that I had difficulty breathing and went to urgent care. Long story short, they gave me an EKG, which had abnormalities, and sent me to the ER. They hit me with a barrage of tests, and decided the tightness was just some extreme inflammation and unrelated to the abnormal EKG. The abnormal EKG is probably due to a condition called Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome, which I probably don't have, but likely the asymptomatic version (WPW pattern). Anyway, to be safe the Dr. said no exercise until I am cleared by a cardiologist. The earliest appointment I could get is 2 weeks. They also hit me with a massive dose of steroidal anti-inflammatory, and today I feel nearly 100%.
