What should I expect to happen at a first appointment with a cardiologist? What does a holter monitor show? I am in my early to mid 20's (female). I've had a high pulse rate since early september. I've had an echocardiogram, and an ekg. My primary doctor
Cardiomyopathy: If the heart rate remains above 100 BPM for prolonged periods of time (months to yrs) a decrease in heart function may occur. Usually treatment will restore function but not alwys. An underlying cause for the fast rate must be found and treated as well. Beta blocers are the drug of choice usually but may vary depending on the cause and the pts medical condition. ...Read more
Hi doc. I have been having a high pulse rate and it usually remains in 90+ range. How to control it.
? need to: A pulse of 90 is still normal (60-100 is normal) and doesn't need to be "controlled". Depends on what type of rhythm it is. An ekg would help. ...Read more
If you have symptoms: Maximal predicted hr is 220 - age in years. Many fatigue at mphr. However athletes often capable of exceeding mphr. No absolute limit, but hr>200 associated with limited filling time and pump failure. Generally people develop limiting symptoms in their body before heart gives out. Not true if heart vessels are diseased... In that case one develops crushing chest pain which usually halts exercise. ...Read more
Fast heart rate may occur with several situations/ conditions as anemia, fever, hyperthyroidism, low blood pressure, stress, caffeine, smoking, exercise, poor physical shape, deconditioning, medications, decongestants. Usually not dangerous.

90 is normal: 90 is a normal rate. Try checking your pulse after sitting quietly, comfortably, and calmly. If you're hot, cold, hungry, afraid, in pain, upset or if you've just exercised, your heart rate should be increased. A healthy heart responds instantly to your needs by increasing its rate. Be well. ...Read more
Depends on the reason for an increased heart rate. Increased heart rate can be a normal response to heart rate >100 -> Sinus tachycardia
- Other possibilities are arrythmias like atrial flutter/atrial fibrillation/ and Supraventricular Tachycardias
An EKG will be very useful in this case. Depending on EKG results and symptoms, holter might also help.
Infection can also cause increased heart rate ...Read more
What is normal pulse rate. Is 90 to 95 a high pulse rate which needs evaluation by a cardiologist. Thanks.
Pulse rate: 90 to 95 is a bit high but not of great concern. Your primary care doctor can tell you if its likely of concern in you. Some folks have that rate range as their normal and for others it high. ...Read more

Fever is common in ARDS as well as high respiratory rate. Severe cases require mechnical ventilation at low tidal volumes and high oxygen and peep as well as treatment of the underlying cause. Steroids not helpful initially. ...Read more
Why have I been hyperventilating for months but do not have anxiety; accompanied by palpitations, pleurisy, and a high pulse rate. I'm 23 w/ sle?
Tachycardia with SLE: As you may know, sle affects multiple organs. It can cause pleurisy as a result of pericarditis, myocarditis, endocarditis, pleural inflammation, pleural effusion, interstitial lung diease, and even pulmonary embolism. As high pulse rate could possibly mean something potentially life threatening like pulmonary embolism, I would consider going to er if you are not followed by your doctors closely. ...Read more
Avoid dehydration: The #1 benign cause of fast heart rate is dehydration. It is very important to drink lots of water, and by that I donot mean coffee and tea (which have a diuretic effect). Cardiac output is HR X Stroke volume so if you are dehydrated, your heart rate is going to go up in order to maintain an adequate C.O. Beside this, of course, primary electrical abnormalities would be in the differential. ...Read more
Probably Not: When you are in the middle of a panic attack, there is usually an increase in heart rate. However, this increase does not usually continue after the panic attack ends. If you havfe a consistently high, or even "borderline high" heart rate, it is probably due to something else. One possibility would be a persistent presence of stress and anxiety in addition to specific episodes of panic. ...Read more
I have a VSD problem and I am underweight. I generally have high pulse rate. Is this is the reason of being underweight or fail to gain weight?
Spell out VSD: To American doctors, VSD means ventricular septal defect. This heart defect has a wide spectrum of severity. If the VSD significantly effects heart function, you will be short of breath and retain water (gain weight). A less common result of VSD is endocarditis (infection inside the heart). This could cause weight loss and high pulse. You would also have a fever. ...Read more
Metrpolol for high pulse rate but not very effective. Resting pul rate is 130. Bp on lower side. Taking diuretic 5mg also. Any other alternative?
See your doctor:
Metoprolol lowers resting heart rate and blunts the response of heart rate to exercise, anemia, fever, hyperthyroidism and other conditions.
You may have to discuss it with your md as your dose may be too low, you may be dehydrated or have other co morbidities (infection/sepsis/thyroid/arrhythmias/anemia/ etc)
check it out. ...Read more

How high?: You need to be evaluated. A 24 hour holter recording will accurately determine how much of the day is spent at increased hr as well as what your heart is doing during sleep. An ekg will accurately reveal what your heart rhythm is. An echocardiogram will determine if you have structural abnormalities that would predispose you to an arrhythmia. Thyroid function & other tests may also be indicated. ...Read more
One month ago I had a iton level of 12, im taking iton tablets for it can low iron be causibg my high pulse rate especially with activity.
I generally have high pulse rate General physician has said that bcos of ur defect u fail to gain weight is this any cure for this?
Heart rate and weigh: High heart rate and failure to gain weight in context of "defect" (? disease process) could indicate hyperthyroidism--thyroid is a gland at base of neck that controls metabolism. Unclear from your question, but if you have thyroid problem causing elevated heart rate and failure to gain weight, this will need to be managed with medication or surgery. Again, not clear if this is what you have. ...Read more
Depends: The maximum predicted heart rate for an individual is roughly 220 minus age. Sustained heart rates above this are not advisable and could be dangerous. In general, rapid heart rates that are associated with symptoms such as chest pain, shortness of breath, or dizziness could be potentially dangerous. ...Read more
I suffer anxiety but today was different!! Normally also high pulse rate/heart race. 2day anxiety BAD but my pulse/heart rate normal!!? Is this normal
It is normal: There isn't necessarily a fixed correlation between levels of anxiety and heart rate. The fact that your heart rate was normal on days when your anxiety level was very high is not medically significant and certainly doesn't indicate any cardiac abnormality If you are having significant anxiety you will benefit from CBT-Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. Go to MY Checklist "overcoming anxiety and stress" ...Read more
Dr. Ali, let me rephrase my q - can gas cause palpitations and high pulse rate? Or is it just panic/anxiety. It subsides in a few hours

Headache... Shaky hands.... Tiredness.... Pain in right chest and sometimes in left as I breath.... High pulse rate now and then....
Call your doctor: The symptoms described are concerning but also too general to make a determination. These symptoms can result from simple causes such as lack of sleep, diet, and dehydration. However, much more serious conditions are possible. A physician needs to examine you and get more information in order to make the correct diagnosis. If you consume coffee, alcohol, or other substances best to stop until seen ...Read more
