Just because you can measure something doesn't mean it's worth measuring. Care for your heart -- fitness, good habits, checkups -- and the beats per minute will be right for you. ...Read more
50-90: It depends on age - children normally have faster heart rates than adults. For adults, the "official" normal resting pulse is 50-90/minute. As a rule, healthy adults tend to be at the lower end of this range. Of course your heart will beat much faster with exercise. The fastest your heart usually goes with peak exercise can be estimated as 220 minus your age. ...Read more

These stimulant may be ingested substances or internally produced. ...Read more
Too fast: If it is always that fast, you need to drop the caffeine / stimulants / antihistamines (including energy drinks). If your heart rate remains >100 whenever you check it (should only take 2-3 days to notice a change), then you should see your dr or a primary care dr for history, exam, ekg & bloodwork to see what is going on. ...Read more
