Sounds strange: if after exercise your heart rate is 85-90 and persists for many hours after you exercise, you may be out of shape. Your resting heart rate should return to what is normal for you with a few minutes to a hour or so (but it does depend on how much and how vigorously you exercised). I would question whether your resting heart rate is really in the 60s and might be higher than that ...Read more

Need a heart monitor: You should have a heart monitor to find out what type of heart rhythm you are actually having when you feel the irregularity. If you have something called atrial fibrillation it is important to get appropriate treatment. Please see your doctor about this. ...Read more

Sounds : Sounds like you might have had orthostatic hypotension of which the #1 cause is dehydration. What happens is that your blood pressure drops instead of increases when you change positions causing the symptoms you describe. I've attached a website with good information about orthostatic hypotension. Basically, make sure you are staying well-hydrated during exercise to avoid this in the future. ...Read more

See your doctor: It is very rare for someone your age to have a heart attack. Talk to your doctor about your symptoms and appropriate treatment. Avoid the use of caffeine especially high energy drinks. If you smoke, quit. Palpitations can be a symptom of panic and anxiety. Your doctor can order an EKG and check your thyroid. Avoid any illicit drug use especially stimulants such as meth or cocaine. Best wishes! ...Read more

Heart pounding: Your normal ekg and echocardiogram are reassuring that you have a normal heart although coronary arteries are not evaluated in those studies. In your case symptoms appear both postural and with exertion. Postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome, anemia, hyperthyroidism, low potassium or magnesium come to mind. A cardiologist is best qualified to evaluate you and can order the appropriate tests ...Read more

Horse and cart: I think you may have the cart before the horse. You're ill. You have a headache. Your BP and pulse rate respond to your stress and distress. Neither are abnormal enough to cause your symptoms. Do you have a fever? Do you get migraines? Have you had upset stomach? Vomiting? Diarrhea? Have you been exposed to someone ill? Have you been to W. Africa? You may have a "bug" that just needs to pass. ...Read more
