Golf in the heat
Well I decided to try and play golf today even though the heat was terrible.
the last time I tried to play I had to quit on the 13th hold. Today I just made 11 and almost fainted on the 11th tee. When I straightened up from teeing the ball up I had about 15 seconds of pressure build up in my head and my ears stopped up. My playing partners said I was whiter than a sheet of paper. I drove back to the clubhouse and still felt terribly weak. I drank another 16 ounces of water and finally got to feeling better and got some color back. I had already drank about 50 ounces of Gatorade and water. Snacked on a banana, apple and trail mix..
I’ve had my 2 lead St Jude PM for about 2 months. It is set on 60 for the low end of my HR. I haven’t been told if there’s an upper end for my heart rate. I was wondering if it was set too low and when i get an elevated Heart rate it was stoping and not letting my BPM to get high enough. Also wondered why I can walk a quarter mile and not be winded or gasping for breath...but I can walk from the recliner to the fridge and be out of breath and heart pounding. I hate to not be able to play golf but will be afraid to try for a while until I can find out what is causing my problem.
