Did my normal leg routine, which consisted of heavy squats singles up to 375 than some accessory work like leg curls and cybex leg press. I push it hard on legs, so obviously my heart was racing after the workout, but nothing out of the ordinary. I got home around 8:30 and just sat on the couch as relaxed as can be.
At 11:30 still as relaxed as can be, I suddenly feel my entire jaw go partially numb...like I could still move it, but it was tingling. Then I couldn't breathe right....it felt like how you breathe after a widowmaker set, but would NOT get better. I figured I would sit down and try to breathe easy and don't move to see if it gets better. 20 minutes passed and it didn't get better. So we figured lets at least drive to the hospital, it may get better on the way and we can turn around. NOPE, it gets WORSE. It got so bad, that I could not even swallow....to the point where getting any kind of air in was DIFFICULT. I actually called 911 from our car because I wasn't sure I was going to make it but they informed me that we were only 1 mile from the hospital.
So I arrive at the hospital...they took my blood, urine, gave me an ekg, gave me a cat scan and an x-ray and did not find anything out of the ordinary. I was there from 12:00 - 5:15 and I did not start breathing normally until 3:00, so whatever it was, it was not fast acting. I did not eat anything out of the ordinary and took all my normal supplements, which really is just creatine and 2 caps of green tea extract (1 serving). At first I thought it could have been the caffeine combined with intense lifting, but why 3 hours after the workout? I do have a history of asthma as a child, but I literally have not needed an inhaler since I was 14 and I am 28 now. In college, I played D1 baseball, and they would beat THE FUCK out of us in conditioning...make you run until you puke/pass out, get up and run some more, and I would get through those with no problems at all and be fine. That is why I am concerned about this. Anyone ever experience something like this? First step is to go to my family doctor and make sure my asthma did not manifest itself again.
