Competitive wrestler, chest pain, lack of blood flow to brain. Cause?

My 17 yr old son is a competitive wrestler. On occasion when he really pushes himself he experiences chest pain , leading to an obvious lack of blood flow to his brain. He has had a full cardiac work up and his heart checks out ok. Is it possible this is being caused by a build up of lactic acid? I also question his nutritional intake on meet days.

Hi , as per your history your son's heart appears to be ok however that chest pain he is complaining may be injured muscles or torn muscle fibres or hyperextension of the costochondral joints may be . Regarding accumulation of lactic acid accumulation , the heart is a well perfused organ and lactic acid accumulate in a compromised state like myocardial infarction. His diet plan should be tailored to his body needs , every athlete is different from another one so please get a nutritionist to chart out a acceptable diet chart for your kid. Take care
