Recieved a phone call from 19 year old daughter.
She is active athletic type who runs 3-5 days a week on treadmill at school. Typically alternating runs walks in 30-40 minute sessions.
Thursday an horu after a light meal of salad she took a study break to get away from roomate to run on treadmill
About 25 minutes into of running walking she started to feel a some shortness of breath as well as soem unusual white rash on her arms and legs particulary around the inner elbow next to biceps. She stopped and got off the treadmill and started getting very dizzy and weak. She slowly walked back to the elevator at her dorm but by the time she got to her floor on 16th floor she said she lost vision in both eyes and had to feel the walls to make it to her door. She stumbled into room and took shower in an attempt to cool off but got very dizzy and nearly passed out. She then went to coach and called her Mom at home in a panic.
She normally runs in short but wore cotton warmup and said that she was hydrating during her run.
Her vision completely returned in ten or fifteen minutes. She refused to call 9-1-1 and said she was getting better.
Went to Campus hospital the next afternoon and the GP was unable to diagnose her condition and set her up for a MRA of the brain which was completed. The radiologist called me and said the scan indicated no anneurism or tumor.
The next step may be a carotid ultrasound.
What could possibly be wrong? We obviously are very concerned having spent the past 4 days with her in Austin. First the white rash (half a fingernail size) on her arms and legs. Then and most importantly the temporary blindness after getting off the treadmill. Is this a stroke? or Heat exhaustion?
Please help if you have any experience in this area
