    Thinking about it, I remember my cousins suffering really badly from them when we were growing up too. Maybe I am just lucky :)

    A couple of weeks back I was going for a lunchtime run around the harbour and I started having pains in my chest, it went tight and my pulse shot up. I could barely breath and people were just walking past me whilst I was lay on the floor trying to get my heart rate down, it didn’t drop. I could barely talk because I couldn’t breath very well. Nobody helped me or stopped to help me, despite the fact I was clearly not okay. I even heard one woman utter ‘watch out for the dying man’ to her toddler. That fucking sucks.

    I had to text my boss (couldn’t speak properly) and walk back to my office (10 mins) with a tight chest and a pulse of 209 (it stayed at this for 25 mins, my heart was SVT).

    I thought I was going to die. I’m twenty-two and it sucked. I’m okay now, went for my first run today and it was uncomfortable towards the end but I feel good for it. Just taking it easy.

    Edit: Here’s the end of the story. TL;DR went in an ambulance, was tired for a week, back to it.

    Yeah I think you're supposed to go to doctors when your heart nearly explodes.

    I think the worst nosebleed I had was whilst driving. I had to park on double yellow lines and walk to a nearby costcutters, trailing blood through the middle of Edinburgh to buy a pack of tissues.

    The blood never did come out of the seatbelt.

    The world is going mad. Me? I'm doing fine.

    I should’ve finished that story... Here’s the end of it:

    When I got back to the office, my boss called 999 and an ambulance came. They managed to lower my heart rate in the ambulance, stabbed me with a bunch of needles and got me to the hospital. I’m seeing a consultant next week about what I can do to prevent potential issues in the future, he might have to ‘burn’ the circuit that’s dodgy in my heart. I’m okay now, back to my old self but was utterly exhausted for a week afterwards. Really weird.

    Ironic thing? I’m running to raise money for British Heart Foundation, so it was part of training to get faster for that. Not going to try and run any faster from now on, and I have a heart rate monitor strapped to me to make sure I’m not about to die.

    Edit: Here’s my sponsor page if you’re feeling generous :) http://justgiving.com/lukejones10k

    I am a Dr, and this is true. Plus what doesn't kill you makes you stronger, go faster next.

    Have you got a sponsor page? I'm sure you could get away with plugging it....

    That's a heart warming story.
    Loved the bit about "stay away from that dying jogger".

    Funny thing is, I used to be quite overweight and was told to run... so I have to find a balance between not trying hard and trying too hard.

    @Trafford – It was a beautiful moment.

    A random musing:

    The flipside of the openness of the internet is that it's a really powerful echochamber, isn't it?

    No matter how insane your opinion or idea is there's always some other nutcases to reinforce your opinion or ideas.

    Someone has farted on my train and the smell has combined with what smells like a thousand different aftershaves and perfumes. I may not make it to the other end alive. :(

    Farting on trains is well out of order. Stand up and berate the person resonsible. Go on. Do it! We're all behind you!

    FCUTA!

    When did the NME stop looking like a newspaper, and when did it start looking like a proper magazine? Is this like a recent thing or is it something that happened ages ago and I've only just noticed.

    My boss has a fart smell like aftershave.
    He's well known for rank guffs, eats a lot of MacDonalds. Always a hint of Hugo Boss mixed in there.
