Is having a high pulse rate a sign of early pregnancy?

Not typically: There are many signs and symptoms of pregnancy. They include missed periods, breast tenderness, sensitivity to smells, and nausea/vomiting, fatigue, and weight gain. If you think you might be pregnant, you could take a home pregnancy test or visit your doctor to obtain proper prenatal care. If your pulse is faster than 100, you should also see a doctor to have your heart checked.

Physical examination: Your cardiologist will listen to your medical history, dymptoms, family history, smoking etc. He or she will examine you and decide if you need any additional testing. Holter monitor is obtained usually over 24 hours. It shows cardiac rhythm.

Can you please tell me about damages of having a high pulse rate?

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.

Hi doc. I have been having a high pulse rate and it usually remains in 90+ range. How to control it.

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.

When is a high pulse rate danerous while exercising?

When is a high pulse rate danerous while exercising?

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.

How to tell why I have a high pulse rate and is it possibly dangerous?

How to tell why I have a high pulse rate and is it possibly dangerous?

Several reasons: 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. If it persists for a while have it checked by pcp.

Why I always have a high pulse rate? Very afraided. Its always 90+. (18 yrs male)

Why I always have a high pulse rate? Very afraided. Its always 90+. (18 yrs male)

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.

Why do I have a high pulse rate? Is it dangerous?

Tachycardia: 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

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.

What would make a person who has hypoparathyroidism have low BP and a high pulse rate?

What would make a person who has hypoparathyroidism have low BP and a high pulse rate?

Hypoparathyroidism: Hypoparathyroidism does not usually involve low BP and high pulse rate. The symptoms of this disease are due to low calcium resulting in tetany muscle twitching.

My wife's pulse rate is 120 and BP is 116 by 74. She also feeds my 13 month daughter. Is such a high pulse rate normal. Causes and remedies please.

Tachycardia: Your wifes pulse rate is too rapid. She should schedule an appointment with her pcp and have her thyroid tested as well as having an ekg. Her pcp may refer her to a cardiologist if necessary.

Is ARDS related to fever and a high pulse rate and respiratory rate?

Is ARDS related to fever and a high pulse rate and respiratory rate?

Not really: ARDS is a lung disorder that can occur as a result of infection, inflammation. It causes the lung to get small and inflamed and filled with fluid. 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.

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?

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.

How can I control my high pulse rate and palpitations and why it happens?

How can I control my high pulse rate and palpitations and why it happens?

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.

Panic attack causing borderline high pulse rate?

Panic attack causing borderline high pulse rate?

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.

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?

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.

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?

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.
