Average Resting Bpm
In bed last night, heart rate increased and stayed that way for an hour or so, average 95 bpm resting. woke this morning with migraine, related??
Headache, lack sleep:
Having a poor night's sleep is a likely link between the headache and what occurred overnight.
Generally we would consider a heart rate up to 100 to be normal. If it was going well over this or you felt it was irregular this may be worth getting an ECG (heart tracing) for. Presume you already passed through menopause? This could be another link. ...Read more
Hi I had an MI and received 3 stents 3 1/2 years ago. I'm keen to stop taking metoprolol. I'm fit and have a monthly average of 53 bpm resting ?
My average heart rate even at rest is as high as 90 to 100 bpm, what is the best way to reduce it to about 70?
Why?: Your heart is regulated by a system of fine neurohumoral mechanisms - why are you trying to defeat them? If your resting hr is 90-100, there's a reason for it. That said, generally the better shape you're in, the slower your resting hr so working out and being keeping body mass index 18-25 will usually do the trick. Fever, anemia, anxiety, stress, exercise, xs thyroid etc. Increases it. ...Read more
I layed down and rested because i felt dizzy then i took my pulse twice and average 126 bpm....????
My resting heart rate has averages of 58 to 66 today it was at 48 BPM should I be concenered about how low it got
No: Although a heart rate is technically bradycardia, this may not be abnormally low for you. You may have a lower resting heart rate because of your level of physical conditioning. A slower heart rate is not a problem if it is not associated with symptoms, such as weakness, light headedness, e.T. Cetera. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

How high can someones BP get when they excercise? I know average/good resting BP is 120/80. When i came home from being out, it was 140/90
High blood pressure: New hypertension (high blood pressure) guideline was just released last month (http://jama.Jamanetwork.Com/article.Aspx?Articleid=1791497). We don't focus on your blood pressure after exercise but rather at rest. Just standing up to walk from waiting room to exam room will raise your BP so you need to sit quietly for a while before checking your bp. For those less than 60yo, goal diastolic is. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I was just wondering what the average pulse is for a female between the ages of 12 and 15. Is 42 a bad pulse while at rest?
Usually not: Slow heart rates are generally healthy signs as long as the electrical sequnce of activation on ECG is normal and the patient is without symptoms. This is particularly true in athletes or veru active children. About the only abnormality which can produce a heart rate that slow is complete heart block, which is easily diagnosed with an ecg. 42 at rest is not 'bad'. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Male, 45, marathon runner. Resting hr 50bpm; BP normal. When i run easy, can average 190bpm for 1st 1.5miles, then decrease to 145. Am i in danger?
Heart rate: No, you are not in danger at all. Just make sure you are getting plenty of hydration through out the day, and replenish your calories with good wholesome nutrition. I have also learned from patients who are marathoners, that they can go into adrenal exhaustion from over training. Make sure you get adequate rest and breaks to train at your peak and avoid body injuries. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
