100-170 bpm: In your 20s, the acceptable target heart rate with exercise is 100-170 bpm. This is assuming you do not have any cardiovascular problems and are fit to exercise. This range is determined by estimating 50-85% of an average maximum heart rate for one's age.

Sore throat...: Hi SteveM, Sounds like you have a sore throat. In medicine, we call that acute pharyngitis. Most cases are due to viruses, where you may develop nasal congestion and cough. This is treated with rest, drinking fluids, and medications for pain or fever. Other cases can be due to bacteria that requires antibiotics. If you develop a fever or white spots in your throat, you should see your doctor.

See your doctor...: It's hard for me to know what's going on completely without your medical record and examining you in person. When you say ulcer, I assume you mean a peptic ulcer in the stomach/small intestine. There are a few types that are treated differently. Chills may represent either an infection or allergy to the meds you are taking. You should go back to your treating doctor to discuss these new symptoms.
