Specializes in Internal Medicine

Multiple causes- very important to find out the cause. Heart rate of 146 is high. could try reversible causes like total avoidance of caffeine,anxiety relieving yoga & meditation etc commonest cause is supra ventricular tachycardia- mostly benign & can be relieved by simple measures of bearing down ( like pushing pregnant woman) applying pressure over ONE carotid artery for a few seconds.
