My heart rate laying down is 48, I'm no athlete, is this normal?

My heart rate laying down is 48, I'm no athlete, is this normal?

Maybe and maybe not: Your heart rate is low, whether it is normal or not depends on whether you have symptoms like dizziness, lightheadedness, fatigue, or feeling faint. If you have symptoms then it is not normal if you do not and your heart rate goes up with activity, this maybe normal for you. You should however get an ekg and see your dr. If you have not. ...Read more

Do symptoms associated with heart problems worsen at night (both when sitting up and laying down)?

Do symptoms associated with heart problems worsen at night (both when sitting up and laying down)?

It depends: Heart failure symptoms typically are worse lying down at night because blood which is held down in the legs during the daytime hours will flow out of the legs into the central part of the body, thereby putting a greater workload on the heart. However, usually the symptoms would lessen with sitting up. ...Read more

See your Family Doc: Heart rate varies depending upon activity & health. Anemia, caffeine, dehydration & hyperthyroidism can increase heart rate. Electrical problems inside heart can also do this. Bottom line, see your Family Doc who can start evaluation w/blood tests & EKG. May need Holter monitor if occurs regularly or event monitor if infrequent. Then referral to Cardiologist as appropriate. And avoid stimulants! ...Read more

My heart rate is lower during the day when sitting upright, when laying down my heart rate is higher. Is this normal?

My heart rate is lower during the day when sitting upright, when laying down my heart rate is higher. Is this normal?

Normal variation: Heart rates vary through the day, under precise control by a nerve network and by adrenaline levels in the blood. Many things can increase the heart rate, including exercise, emotion, dehydration, and even paying attention to the heart rate. If you feel palpitations or other symptoms when your heart rate is fast, a heart monitor can help figure out if you are having any abnormal heart rhythms. ...Read more

Was laying down and suddenly got a brief second of sharp stab pain on left chest side by heart. Went away. Feel okay. No heart history issues. Worry?

Benign symptom: Brief, sharp chest pains that occur at rest and go away without any other symptoms are not worrisome and this symptom is definitely not a heart attack. Heart attacks would cause a different type of pain and not go away quickly. Similarly, angina heart pains occur with activity and go away with rest. ...Read more

If my heart rate laying down is 66bpm, and sitting down it is 78bpm. Which one of these is considered my resting heart rate?

Both: Both are. HR rises when upright to keep blood pumped out of legs and toward vital organs. If it stays more than 20 beats higher than when lying down, it can mean dehydration. Resting HR just means that you're not doing any activity. ...Read more
