Is a heart rate always high if your heart is pounding or can it happen when it's low to normal too?
Yes it can: Heavy pounding of the heart relates more to the force of contraction which is governed by the amount od catecholamines (adrenalin) as well as the volume of blood put out with contraction.. Often times this will lead to a faster heart rate but it doesn't have to. An example would be aortic regurgitation wherein the heart is heavily loaded (preload), from backward filling across aortic valve. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Wore heart monitor 7 days my heart rate was as low as 49 as high as 150. Normal for me walking is in the 80s on my current meds. What can cause this?

I have a very high heart rate while exercising and a very low heart rate while resting. Is this normal or do I need to see a doctor?
Physical fitness?: Well conditioned athletes often have low heart rates at rest (sometimes 40 - 50 bpm). Your maximum heart rate should be 220 - age (i.e. ~171 bpm for a 49 y/o). If your heart rate rises above this, abruptly rises to this rate, or you have dizziness, short breath, or chest pain, see a cardiologist to make sure you're not experiencing an arrhythmia. Otherwise, this range is normal for athletes ...Read more
