I have just been diagnosed with ARVC and been advised not to run ever again. As a runner of 30+ years this is hard to accept. I have suffered many instances of non sustained VT when running, resolved by a short walk or slowing down. I have been advised to have a ICD fitted and am considering this at the moment, but have been told by the cardiologist that even with this protection I shouldn't run. Is this just doctors being over cautious or should I listen? I am more than happy to reduce distance and speed but not to give up all together. Would appreciate advice etc from anyone with knowledge or experience of this condition.
