Default Scary situation post workout. Heart condition ?

Hi guys,

I am 37 years old and haven't smoked or drank alcohol since 1st April and I am 5'11 and 187 lbs.

I have started working out after many years. For the past 2-3 weeks, I have just been doing casual exercises, sometimes on a recumbent bike or walking on a treadmill or some weight training without a standard program.

On each of these occasions, whether on a recumbent bike or a treadmill or moderate weight training, after 15-20 minutes I have been belching continuously and having mild difficulty in breathing.

I thought it was my mistake as I used to drink a glass of milk or have some bananas 30 minutes before a workout and while belching I can make out its the undigested milk or bananas.

Today, I decided to do a proper workout seriously without any preworkout food. A full body workout with one exercise for each body part ( 6 body parts * 3 sets) and by the end of the workout I was belching pretty heavily.

I somehow rushed out of the gym and while walking home, I was really disoriented. Difficulty in breathing and complete discomfort, I thought I was going to have a heart attack or just collapse.

I had completed my lunch at 2.30 pm and did the workout at 6.00 pm, there was no preworkout food this time and my weight training was less than 30 minutes.

I somehow reached home and there was a massive burp and then I started feeling ok but the incident has left me in fear.

I will obviously get my heart checked but I am would like your opinion on this.

Is my low cardio efficiency the culprit here ?

Shall I do cardio for 1-2 months, till I build my capability to operate lets say an elliptical bike upto 45 mins - 60 mins and then move to weight training. ?

Thanks for reading,

See a doctor sooner rather than later. What if it was cardiac-related? How can a person tell? You're getting signals from your body; a doctor needs to interpret them.

I hope it turns out to be something easily explained. Good luck!
