An inappropriately fast heart rate can be a sign of illness and prolonged very rapid rates are harmful. ...Read more

My super fast heart rate in the mornings is interrupting my sleep. Is this normal?

My super fast heart rate in the mornings is interrupting my sleep. Is this normal?

See cardiologist: Depending on your stress level, such as awakening during a disturbing dream, your heart rate may rise well into the 100's bpm; however, "arrhythmias", such as supraventricular tachycardia (SVT) can also occur and awaken you from sleep. SVT is an abnormally fast heart rhythm, due to a short circuit in your heart. See your doctor, cardiologist, or heart rhythm specialist for an evaluation. ...Read more

Would it be good advice to do vagal maneuvers if someone is having a fast heart rate?

Would it be good advice to do vagal maneuvers if someone is having a fast heart rate?

Maybe: Depends on the cause of the fast heart rate. If the rhythm is normal but fast, the rate will simply slow and come right back (no net effect). Same for atrial fib and flutter. But if the fast hr is due to pat/svt (atrial tachycardia), the vagal maneuver may break the rhythm and restore normal rate. It's worth a try. Vagal maneuvers will have no effect on ventricular rhythms. ...Read more

Fitness evaluation: If you have symptoms with exercise that you think are abnormal, you should see your doctor to make sure you are otherwise healthy (not anemic, no evidence of systemic disease, etc.) then, if that is all normal, consider having a fitness evaluation that includes an exercise test to see what your response is to incremental exercise.
