My RHR is 67. After exercising, it reaches around 85 - 90bpm, and takes the rest of the day to go all the way back down to 60s. Heart problems?
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

Was having a bad panic attack after I ate so I took two beta blockers but I still feel it pounding somewhat. Am I having a heart attack?
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.

Heart pounding: Your normal ekg and echocardiogram are reassuring that you have a normal heart although coronary arteries are not evaluated in those studies.

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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
