Suffer with episodic tachycardia at night and during the day. They don't know why. Safe to exercise?

Probably: Need more information. I am assuming that testing has been done that identified what type of tachycardia you have, and that structural and ischemic heart disease have been ruled out. If that is the case, the arrhythmia is likely harmless and should not cause you any limitations, Check with the doc that did the testing, ...Read more

If someone has post orthostatic tachycardia syndrome and hr raises by only 30 when standing, if they did a lot of exercise, could they bring it down?

Interplays: There are a lot of interacting factors here: i'd recommend/agree with "lots" of exercise
including weight lifting/speed swimming. But also, eliminate caffeine, sweets, refined foods and get as close to gluten free/whole and unprocessed foods vegan (90 % will do) as you can. If overweight, slim down to trim. Metformin & bystolic (nebivolol) may helps + reduce whatever other meds you can. Www. Thepmc. Org. ...Read more

I know that tachycardia results during exercise but when is it dangerous?

I know that tachycardia results during exercise but when is it dangerous?

Hard to get there: Assuming you are in otherwise good health, the generally accepted max sustained heart rate is 220 minus your age. But many people (see tim noakes' work on the "central governor") will say that your body will stop you before you do damage.

Of course, before starting any new exercise regimen you should consult your physician. ...Read more

Is it safe to exercise with sinus tachycardia? I'm on metoprolol ER 25mg a day.

Needs evaluation.: To help decide if it's safe to exercise, it would be important to undergo a thorough examination to determine the underlying cause of the tachycardia. Hyperthyroidism causes a rapid heart rate; there are less common medical problems which could be at fault. Finding the problem will enable the determination of the proper treatment. Then the exercise question can be answered. ...Read more

Automatic atrial tachycardia with exercise? How do you differentiate from innapropriate sinus tachycardia? Which would be more likely in an athlete?

Automatic atrial tachycardia with exercise? How do you differentiate from innapropriate sinus tachycardia? Which would be more likely in an athlete?

Tachycardia: Inappropriate sinus tachycardia - elevated heart rate (HR) at rest > 100 sitting/standing. Athletes usually have a slow HR at rest. Atrial tachycardia/fibrillation/flutter with excessive HR more common in extreme athletes with exercise. Cause unclear - may be due to electrical changes from extreme endurance exercise to atrial electrical properties of the heart. More exercise not always better. ...Read more

Can heart rate of 180 (caught on 14 day loop) still be considered sinus tachycardia? What can cause this if it's not my heart? No exercise/anxiety

Can heart rate of 180 (caught on 14 day loop) still be considered sinus tachycardia? What can cause this if it's not my heart? No exercise/anxiety

Unlikely: Maximum HR is age related. At your age, 180 can be due to sinus tachy but only with reason eg, strenuous exercise, severe pain, anxiety thyroid XS or infection. More likely you have supraventricular tachycardia, a common but pathological condition. Your doctor will discuss treatment options. Meanwhile avoid nicotine, caffeine, alcohol, pseudoephedrine, and recreational drugs. ...Read more

Postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome gives me angina. Male 22. If I exercise laid down no heart and arm pain, if stood up I get it.

Postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome gives me angina. Male 22. If I exercise laid down no heart and arm pain, if stood up I get it.

No: Pots cannot give you angina. To get angina, you have to have narrowed or blocked coronary arteries. That's unheard of at your age unless you use Cocaine or are diabetic (and then it's very rare). If you have abnormal cas, pots can exacerbate the supply/demand balance by making your heart beat faster (which increases demand). Your exertional pain is likely muscular. ...Read more

Sinus tachycardia treatment: which is better, ibravadine or bisoprolol? Avg resting HR 90-115, normotensive, no other comorbidities, exercise daily!

Sinus tachycardia: Inappropriate sinus tachycardia (IST) is a syndrome characterized by excessive resting heart rate or disproportional increase in heart rate during exercise. Metoprolol and ivabradine a new drug which effects the sinus node exert similar effects on resting heart rate but ivabradine is more effective in relieving symptoms during exercise or daily activity. ...Read more

Would heart failure be possible after normal resting echo? Pains, vomiting, collapse, tachycardia on standing and complete exercise intolerance 5 months. Possible pots but symptoms so severe I worry.

Yes.: Heart failure is possible even when an echocardiographic study demonstrates normal systolic function. It's referred to as diastolic heart failure and often there are suggestions of it on an echo. Your symptoms merit a thorough evaluation by your doctor or by a cardiologist. ...Read more

What causes resting ekgs to be inconsistent? One showed sinus tachycardia, one showed a right ventricular conduction delay, sometimes a borderline qt, sometimes high lv force. I'm an athlete. Feel very fatigued after exercise. Normal to be inconsistent?

What causes resting ekgs to be inconsistent? One showed sinus tachycardia, one showed a right ventricular conduction delay, sometimes a borderline qt, sometimes high lv force. I'm an athlete. Feel very fatigued after exercise. Normal to be inconsistent?

Varies: There can be a number of reasons that an ekg can be "inconsistent". First, if your cardiac condition varies then the keg findings can vary; second, there can be variations in the placement of the leads by the technician that can sometimes make ekgs appear different; also, if different people are reading the ekgs it may be interpreted differently. Echocardiogram may be helpful in athletes as well ...Read more

*Resting heart rate 90+ for last 2 weeks *Tachycardia, on verapamil to slow down pulse *Exercise 5x/week *on Clobetasol for alopecia *thyroid good???

How do you FEEL?: Individual heart rates vary tremendously and there's almost no science here, though there's a great deal of superstition. How is your blood pressure? I trust you're not taking a medicine as tricky as verapamil to treat a number. Since you're exercising, and I take it have normal exercise tolerance without being interrupted by shortness of breath, I'd urge you to be thankful for good health. ...Read more

I'm 21 and since a bad flu 3 months ago, I've been having tachycardia and extreme exercise intolerance. Ekgs, echo and troponins have been normal, but potassium is low despite high dietary intake. Causes?

I'm 21 and since a bad flu 3 months ago, I've been having tachycardia and extreme exercise intolerance. Ekgs, echo and troponins have been normal, but potassium is low despite high dietary intake. Causes?

Low potassium levels: You may have a problem with potassium (k) wasting, possibly by your kidneys. If you had no wasting of k, k supplements would have elevated your blood k level. See a nephrologist to rule out a renal cause of k loss. Good luck. ...Read more

Have post orthostatic tachycardia syndrome. Since 18 get chest pain on exercise. See profile for tests. I'm 22. Should I have CT scan?

Pots: Pots seems to affect young women and may sometimes occur after mono.Your chest pain may be due to the fluctuations in your blood pressure while exercising. Try drinking fluids and maybe exercise at short intervals like 30 minutes at a time. You might discuss the use of a beta blocker with your doctor. I think a ct scan would be non revealing. ...Read more

Dehydration: Try drinking half your weight in ounces of water. It you weigh 100 pounds drink 50 ounces a day. 150 lbs drink 75 oz aday, etc. See your doctor if after drinking water each day your symptoms persist see your doctor to get your thyroid checked as well as your blood pressure. The Inderal (propranolol) you take may be lowering your blood pressure and pulse more that you realize. ...Read more
