When exercising one identifies a heart rate which is 100%, depending on age. 100% of what? (i refer to the 220-age formula for 100% heart rate.)

When exercising one identifies a heart rate which is 100%, depending on age.  100% of what?  (i refer to the 220-age formula for 100% heart rate.)

Of predicted: Certain numbers have been determined to be maximal heart based on age. The heart can actually go faster than these numbers but it has been determined that higher rates are detrimental. If you are exercising and you heart rate reaches that predicted number, then you have reached 100%. It is recommended that you keep your heart rate at 80-90% during exercise. ...Read more

Anxiety causes a 85 to 100+ heart rate but blood pressure Always 100/60 to 87/44... Should I be worried?

No: Anxiety alone will change your numbers, and if you focus on them, can make you more anxious. Those numbers are fine. I recommend you not worry about them, and focus on ways to calm yourself down if anxious. Avoid all caffeine too. ...Read more

My son, age 35, has anxiety. Physical: normal bp, but high (100) heart rate. No hyperthyroidism. Other physical causes of both? Beta blocker help?

My son, age 35, has anxiety. Physical: normal bp, but high (100) heart rate. No hyperthyroidism. Other physical causes of both? Beta blocker help?

Anxiety issues: I agree with dr. Werner's list of differential diagnoses of anxiety, which can itself cause many physical symptoms. However, i respectfully disagree that xanax is the best long-term anxiety treatment, and suggest seeing a psychiatrist for evaluation and recommendations. Xanax can help temporarily but is habit-forming. Other, safer options include psychotherapy, buspar, (buspirone) ssri's, inderal, etc. ...Read more

Defib in place 6 months DVT in jugular 2 months today chest hurts temp of 100 heart rate of 100-120 what could it be very sore and weak?

Pneumonia: Blood clots (DVT) around defib and pacer wires are very common and usually do not cause problems. Your symptoms sound more infectious than embolic. I would contact your doctor. While likely viral, bacterial infection is possible. A chest xray might be a good idea but your doctor would order this if he/she feels the need. ...Read more

My blood pressure when standing up is 130/90 heart rate 104 sitting it's 100/60 heart rate 82 is this normal?

My blood pressure when standing up is 130/90 heart rate 104 sitting it's 100/60 heart rate 82 is this normal?

Symptoms? Not abnl.: The readings are just numbers. Unless you are having SYMPTOMS when standing or sitting, I would not worry about the numbers too much. 1st, make sure u r resting for 5 min b4 taking the readings. BP normally increases slightly when standing if ur body adjusts; a drop is more worrisome & could lead to Sx. Your HR shd also increase slightly when standing, so it is not abnormal. Your sitting #s are OK ...Read more
