Don't Larry Johnson him. Herm Edwards gave him over 400 carries one year and he was done after that.

Besides, most strict vegans know to take iron and B12 supplements.
Maybe not, but strict vegan diets can cause gas (I don't believe he's a strict vegan, now). MDs are slow to acknowledge the effect of GI/vagus nerve impact on heart rhythm. If his vagus nerve is acting up due to indigestion or gas (due to an empy stomach from not being fully meat-satiated for example), this can send inappropriate signals back to heart.

If he has the flu, that can also stimulate irregularities.

Hopefully its one of these diet/GI/Vagus "normal" irregularities instead of any more serious heart ailments.

I have afib due to the viral myocarditis I had in 2000. The first 8 years it showed up only once every 2-3 years and I would get it converted at the hospital. In 2008 I went it for ablation and they effed it up and pierced my heart and I have to have it closed so opened up. Anyways, they didn't fix it. Now it happens about once every 4 months and I take pills and us back in 1-3 hours. So a majority of my life us in regular sinus rhythm. I take no blood thinners and my heart is in great shape despite the happenings. I can workout just the same, though saying it is easier than doing it. Many docs think mine is now vagus related because the surgery messed up my system and usually happens when I've eaten and then am in a hurry of do activities. Ironically exercise helps it go back.

Foster has an irregular heartbeat and the rest of the staff lost their heart. Go figure.

At this point in time, with the limited information we have, I would not jump to any "terrible" conclusions. Most people have occasional, irregular heartbeats that may feel like a fluttering or racing heart. These are usually very temporary, benign and never go on to require any medical treatment.

He has evidently converted to normal heartbeat.

I appreciate all the concern and support. I am doing well. Saw a cardiologist today and everything is back to normal.

Exactly. Now that they've made sure Foster's heartbeat was normal we can start asking the obvious follow up question. "Did they have any luck finding the rest of the teams heartbeats? Anyone see any signs of life there at all?"

I never saw any.

Except for #99 and #80. Those two were trying to resuscitate the others, but it was no use. Tag 'em and bag 'em.

I didn't want to start a new thread, but this is worth noting:

Quote:
Houston Texans' fans were understandably concerned when star running back Arian Foster left early during the team's loss to the Minnesota Vikings with an irregular heartbeat. One young fan named Macie was so worried she made a sign for her favorite player, hoping that his heart felt better.

... Macie's father tweeted the picture to Foster, who quickly responded to his young fan.
Link.

Check out the picture of the letter. He used it for his Twitter avatar.
