What does it mean if my heart rate was really high during exercise and stays at 110 over an hour and a half after exercise? Is it anxiety?

What does it mean if my heart rate was really high during exercise and stays at 110 over an hour and a half after exercise? Is it anxiety?

LargestPossibilities: =anxiety/fear/pain &/or congestive heart failure. Heart rate controlled by brain. Like rest of body, heart follows orders from brain (many cycles/second). Sensors from heart, blood vessels, rest of body provide extensive feedback to brain: a complex Soul? Mind? Brain? Body integrated system which allows life, despite only partially understood.

Heart rate stays at 160 after exercise for 30 minutes? Never happened before? Healthy resting ecg?

Heart rate stays at 160 after exercise for 30 minutes? Never happened before? Healthy resting ecg?

Holter: Exercise usually increase the heart rate but it should stay that fast so long after finishing the exercise. You may need holter monitor to see if it is sinus or you have abnormal heart rhythm. Please see your pcp.

Why does my heart rate stay elevated for 2-3 hours after exercise?

Why does my heart rate stay elevated for 2-3 hours after exercise?

Likely abnormal: Http://www. Heart. Com/heart-rate-chart. Html. I have the impression that it is too long to go back to baseline. What is your resting pulse? How old are you? What medicines do you take? Have you had any cardiac arrhythmias? Did you drink caffeine after exercise? Are you taking enhancers to develop muscle mass? How often and since when this happens?

Y would diastolic BP lower after exercise, is that normal. How quickly should your heart rate go up during exercise and how far. Is 80 high resting ra?

Y would diastolic BP lower after exercise, is that normal. How quickly should your heart rate go up during exercise and how far. Is 80 high resting ra?

Yes!: Normally diastolic blood pressure will fall during exercise and for several hours afterwards. This is because off vasodilation that normally occurs. Systolic BP should always rise. However, in hypertension, the diastolic pressure will rise too, imposing an unnecessary work load on the heart. Increase in heart rate is based on exercise intensity. Normally the HR max is 220-age in years.

My heartbeat feels very weak and the artery in my neck feels strained, after exercise feels worse heart rate high but can't feel it, cardio tests OK?

My heartbeat feels very weak and the artery in my neck feels strained, after exercise feels worse heart rate high but can't feel it, cardio tests OK?

Weak heart beat: Not enough information and no question. I do not know what you mean by heartbeat. Do u mean pulse in your wrist? I do not know what you mean by artery in neck feels strained. I have never in 50 yeArs of seeing patients have someone tell me this. Heart rate should be high after exercise. Maybe this is all lost in translation.

How long is it supposed to it take for heart rate to recover after exercise?

How long is it supposed to it take for heart rate to recover after exercise?

Exercise: In general the rate drops at least 10per cent in the first minute post exercise, depending on conditioning level a variable time after to return to baseline. The better the conditioning the more rapid return to baseline. By 10 minutes resting most people should be back to baseline unless perhaps ran a marathon, etc.

My BP goes up to about 135-150/70 immediately after exercise then drops to 118/65 shortly after. Heart rate drops to 50. Is this normal?

My BP goes up to about 135-150/70 immediately after exercise then drops to 118/65 shortly after. Heart rate drops to 50. Is this normal?

Can be normal: A modest rise in blood pressure is a normal response to exercise (a rise of about 5%) an exaggerated jump in blood pressure (15%) can be an indication for an increase future risk cardiovascular problems such as carotid artery blockage studies warn. Your response looks normal.

Bp before exercise: 130/83, after exercise: 100/60. 2 hours after that time: 95/60, heart rate 85 bpm. Without beta blocker. Is it normal / abnormal?

Bp before exercise: 130/83, after exercise: 100/60. 2 hours after that time: 95/60, heart rate 85 bpm. Without beta blocker. Is it normal / abnormal?

BP should be high: You are in beta blockers. Medications that will decrease the normal response of blood pressure and heart rate to exercise. If no beta blockers your blood pressure should be a little higher right after exercise. Have you have a stress test? What are the echo results? Any other symptoms? Dizziness after standing from chair? Check with your doctor.

Can drinking water after exercise make your heart rate increase?

Can drinking water after exercise make your heart rate increase?

No: No....Dehydration following exercise causes increased heart rates....Hydration should lower, not raise heart rates. However heart rate recovery. ..How quickly heart rate returns to baseline is a measure of cardiovascular fitness.

My bp is normally 96/70, after walking on treadmill for 60 min (heart rate at 105bpm) my bp was 87/74. Why the drop after exercise? Hydrated & ate

Did you wait 10 min.: If you waited you may be in great shape and but rate is too high if waited, I would see a cardiologist to be sure no cardiac defect

Cardiologist?: Seems that he has a significant cardiac history. He should be evaluated by his cardiologist to make sure he is able to participate in this rigorous activity routine. If so, good for him and he should continue.

Resting heart rate of 99bpm, after exercise, my heart rate is 120bpm but goes back to 99bpm. Ekg is normal. See cardiologist?

Resting heart rate of 99bpm, after exercise, my heart rate is 120bpm but goes back to 99bpm. Ekg is normal. See cardiologist?

Heart rate: At your age a low heart rate of 99 is a little unusual. Your primary md could start your evaluation with an ekg. I would also consider a non cardiac cause such as hyperthyroidism or anemia. I would also think you can achieve a much higher rate than 120. You didn't mention how hard you were exercising.

Anxiety: Most of what you mention can result from an anxiety disorder. After seeing your doctor to rule out or identify medical conditions, please see a mental health professional to learn stress management. Peace and good health. Qigong and yoga can be good self-help techniques. See www. Asch. Net for referrals to professionals who practice clinical hypnosis.

I am experiencing rapid heart rate (worsened by: psychological stress, after exercise), heartburn (gerd) (worsened by: bending forward, eating certain foods.)?

Maybe just heartburn: ...But chest pain is nothing to ignore! The potential origin of your symptoms includes: heart, lungs, mediastinum, esophagus, musculoskeletal, pericardium (sac around the heart), pleuritis, bronchiitis, or referred pain from a remote site. Your doctor will be concerned about accompanying fever, blood with coughing, vomiting, shortness or breath, difficulty reclining, tenderness. Get checked please

26, obese (bmi 41), BP 117/76. Resting heart rate only 54-60. After exercise it hardly raises. Had normal ecg/stress test last year. Is this normal?

Not necessarily: As your heart rate should augment (increase) during exercise. In fact, for a stress test to be considered truly diagnostic it is defined by the you achieving a certain heart rate. If your heart rate doesn't increase either you had non-diagnostic stress test due to suboptimal heart rate levels or have some chronotropic insufficiency - as in an abnormal ability to increase your heart rate.

After taking antipsychotics, whenever I exercise my heart rate stays elevated for many hours after stopping. Does have to do with dopamine blocking?

After taking antipsychotics, whenever I exercise my heart rate stays elevated for many hours after stopping. Does have to do with dopamine blocking?

Medicine side effect: Dopamine blockade does not cause the heart rate to go up. The anticholinergic side effects of some antipsychotics or anticholinergics used with antipsychotics may cause the heart rate to go up a little.

Heart Rate (Definition)

Heart rate is a measurement of the number of times a person's heart beats in one minute. Normal heart rates vary with a person's age and with excitement and exercise. Abnormal heart rates are too slow, too fast, and/or irregular (too much ...Read more
