paranoid about heart problems..
hi.. didnt really know where to post this thread as im concerned about a couple of things basically relating to the health of my heart... im 20 years old, 6ft 1 and about 62 kgs, which im aware is significantly underweight.
recently i have become very paranoid about the health of my heart, which has mainly sprung from (and i dont take pride in admitting this, but its an important part of the genuine concerns i have) the intake of the legal drug (in england) mephedrone, which similarly to cocaine, increases the heart rate signficantly. it isnt so much irregularity of my heartbeat that has concerned me, but more the fact that my lifestyle could be causing me a big problem.
when i say lifestyle, i dont mean the use of legal highs as this was just the reason for the beginning my concerns and awakening me to potential health issues, and i no longer take any substances that would be a trouble to my body. i mean complete lack of exercise and very poor and fatty diet, yet my body weight is very low. my metabolism seems normal so i eliminated that as a reason. i very rarely eat healthy food or exercise. despite this, i dont eat large amounts of food per day, but the food i do eat is fatty.
i was wondering basically if im just completely paranoid, or my diet and exercise, yet very low weight, could be a health concern? and if so, how immediate? the more i think about my heart the worse i tend to feel about it. and also does anybody know what the chances are of my past use of a cocaine-type heart beat increasing drug such as cocaine causing immediate death? (not regular or heavy use)
thanks to anybody who can come up with any sort of answer to kill my worries slightly!
