I was admitted to hospital after my resting HR went above 150, normally it would always be below 50 and down to low 40's.
Woke up feeling really rough in the night (two days after a long hard day ride, felt bad at the start) could not even sit in the chair without collapsing, temp was up.
Wafted in and out of really rough to virtual collapse.
Went to er and was seen quite quickly, doctor admitted me within minutes.
After an ecg I was in a what can be described as a infection ward?
On a drip and within 24 hrs going home.
Consultant said most probable dehydration due to a virus, the raised HR is due to dehydration.
After my ride a few days earlier I ate and drank freely and no urine bad color etc, I knew I was not perfect during the ride and after but I put that down to a bad day.
On anticolesterol, I have been through most of the statins and am now on Ezetimibe.(non statin).....................just the other day I tracked down a US site which says that the med can cause a rash which I have had, muscle cramps well I feel awful all the time worst when I relax , joint pain unlike anything or similar to statins, itching lower legs and red rash, endurance has gone from 250 miles in a day to struggling to stay on bike after 100, then I get off and collapse for half an hour, and cant even cycle up any hill to get a few miles home.
Its GP on monday as I am well fed up
