I am going to live!

I met with the cardiologist yesterday and he gave me the all clear to ride again.  He is  not sure why I had the trouble I did, but my heart is in excellent condition, no blockages, damage, etc. There is nothing wrong with my heart that would lead to a heart attack.   We are going to diary what goes on during rides over the next month to see if there are any specific conditions that cause that cause the same condition.

So, as a good FOGBEE, I left the doctor's office and went for a ride!  It felt great!

Mike,
Absolutely great news. Most bothersome to me are the days you spent not knowing. We physicians need to do a better job of communication.

As for feeling absolutely bushed, chest hurting, and unable to get one's breath during a climb. Welcome to my world.

Phil - getting "old" is a state of mind. Getting "older" is unpreventable. Mike - good to hear you're back in the saddle, again.
