I love hiking, but due to me working fulltime & not being able to get up to the mountains much, i don't really get to hike but maybe 4 times a year. I am 90 lbs. overweight, and 54 yrs. old, my husband is 14 yrs. older than me, but he is not overweight, so he does this hiking well, i never had any health problems, but over the last couple years, my blood pressure is creeping up on me a little, it's borderline, and bad cholesterol is 13 pts too high. I've never had any trouble hiking carrying my extra weight till last weekend. I kinda been under alot of anxiety & stress. I have anxiety. Last weekend, we went to a local mountain to do a 1 mile hike up to the summit. We had to drive a hour drive, plus drive another hour on a long winding dirtroad to get to the trailhead parking lot. My anxiety was increasing as we got there. I noticed my heart was hurting some going up the steep steady incline, but when we stopped to rest & drink water, it subsided. After we done the trail & came back down, my chest/heart was hurting, numbness in my left arm, neck hurting, headache, heart rate was up. I thought i was getting ready to have a stroke or heart attack. I went to a urgent care, they did a ECG, urine sample, chest xray, all checked out good. No sign of heart attack or stroke. Blood pressure was 144/88, (borderline they said). Doctor said i just overdone myself. And since i not been working out at home, it was harder n my body to do strenuous hikes. He said get to exrcising at home, get used to that, & do less strenuous hikes & work my way up to more strenuous hikes. And diet & loose weight. Any thoughts?
