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

It depends on age: Subtract your current age in years (36) from 220. First multiply the number you get by 0.6. This is your minimum target exercising heart rate. Now multiply the first number you got by 0.8. This is your maximum target heart rate. Stay inside that range when you exercise. 220-36=184; 184x0.6= 110; 84x0.8=147. Your "normal" heart rate for exercise is between those 2 numbers. ...Read more

If not, nearest ER will be fine - they will transfer her if needed. ...Read more
