Do You Have A High Pulse Rate With Bronchitis
I have a very high heart rate while exercising and a very low heart rate while resting. Is this normal or do I need to see a doctor?
Physical fitness?: Well conditioned athletes often have low heart rates at rest (sometimes 40 - 50 bpm). Your maximum heart rate should be 220 - age (i.e. ~171 bpm for a 49 y/o). If your heart rate rises above this, abruptly rises to this rate, or you have dizziness, short breath, or chest pain, see a cardiologist to make sure you're not experiencing an arrhythmia. Otherwise, this range is normal for athletes ...Read more

How should I start an exercise program if i'm overweight, have slightly high blood pressure and asthma?
Starting to exercise: Before you start stressing your body, make sure your BP and asthma are controlled by medications. Once your doctor says you are all right to exercise, start by walking a few minutes a day. You want low impact, weight-bearing exercise, assuming you can walk without major pain. Increase gradually as you are able. The key is to do something regularly. Wave your arms like an orchestra conductor! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Average: It's a matter of averages. Your arteries "see" the average of your blood pressure. Remember, the diagnosis of "high blood pressure" is based methodologically on measurement at complete rest for 10 minutes - that is, your lowest blood pressures. It's healthy to exercise daily, and exercise raises BP, but it's still healthy! Don't confuse an elevated measurement with the disease. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
What might cause a person with asthma to have shortness of breath but a consistently high peak flow (750+), and all of their cardio tests checked out fine?
Anxiety: In my experience, when someone has a subjective feeling of shortness of breath, palpitations, chest tightness etc., but all the objective measures are checking out ok, what you may actually be dealing with is an anxiety problem. But first you rule out the physical stuff. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Many reasons: Heart rate increases with fever. It increases with pain (which usually accompanies flu). It increases with dehydration, which happens more quickly than normal if you have a fever and aren't drinking well enough. It increases with combinations of all of the above. Rarely, it happens because the virus that is making you sick effects your heart directly. ...Read more
Depends: It depends entirely on the cause and severity of the pathology causing the murmur. ...Read more
Standing erect: When you lie or sit, your body doesn't have to fight gravity to get blood to your head. When you stand up, it does, and heart rate rises and leg blood vessels tighten to maintain blood flow to your brain. Breathing is less affected. If you have heart failure, breathing and heart rate may rise upon lying down since more blood returns to the heart than it can handle and it backs up into the lungs. ...Read more
No: High blood pressure is only one risk factor for heart attack. Others include smoking, diabetes, high cholesterol, age, and family history of heart disease. It is such a common problem, there are some patients that have none of these risk factors, but still have heart attacks. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
