Hi community of medhelp. I hope your all well.
I am constantly worrying as to why fabrice muamba may have had a cardiac arrest in 2012. I myself am considered an athlete, i train 6 days a week, sometimes twice a day. Ive had chest pain before, not on exertion, just in general. I have ectopic beats, without exercise, and sometimes with exercise. Ive had a 24 and 48hr holter monitor, approx 25 ecg's since 2011, a stress test lasting 12 minutes, and an echocardiogram in late 2014. I have nothing exciting except pac/pvcs upto around 20 a day if that! No mitral valve prolapse or anything.
Now back on to muamba, if im right, neither did he have any known conditions. Some say hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, some say long qt, and some say perhaps drug induced arrythmia.
Does anyone know for definate or have the knowledge to share why they think it wasnt one or the other of these conditions?
