I been to many cardiac arrests and I strongly believe my patients were not experiencing any pain. Blood flow to the brain has ceased or is decreased. The patient doesn't even move. Patients do experience pain after resucitation because of CPR and intubation. A myocardial infarct might of preceeded the cardiac arrest.

I was doing some sprints and my heart started to heart. I think its my heart because when it would beat it would hurt so I got scared and stopped sprinting. I was tired but not completely exhausted. I have been doing some pretty intense running these last two weeks and since then my heart has been hurting throught the day just not a lot. The pain increases as I run harder but it was just annoying more than painful. Today I was doing some sprints and stopped because for the first time it was painful. I wanted to know why it might be hurting? because I have worked out like this before just without the many sprints that I have been doing these past two weeks.
