Is resting heart rate of 70 after being diagnosed with afib normal?

Is resting heart rate of 70 after being diagnosed with afib normal?

Yes: But be sure and know how well controlled your afib is overall. I have many patients who come to my office who have heart rates in the 70's or 80's at rest and seem fine but with the most minor of activity have heart rates that are wildly out of control.

For a 27 year old: woman the normal heart rate can vary between 40 and180 BPM. What you heard (HR<50 concerning) is just that, hearsay! That heart rate is not associated with either heart blockage or MVP. It is unlikely there is anything wrong as it sounds like you have been thoroughly evaluated. ...Read more

I currently have a resting heart rate of 100 blood work is fine/ultrasound of heart was fine except arachnoid cyst was removed recently, tachycardia?

EKG?: If you had an ultrasound, i assume you also had an ekg. What does your doctor say about the ekg? This is the most important test to tell you if this is just a fast normal heart rate or an arrhythmia. Has your thyroid blood test been tested? Make sure this has all been done and talk it over with your doctor. ...Read more

My heart rate is at 60-65bpm resting with a blood pressure at 155/80 is this normal for my heart rate to be so slow with a high blood pressure. I'm 20?

High blood pressure: The resting heart rate is of little significance in this case. What is much more concerning is the blood pressure of 155/80. That is quite a bit too high and in a young person suggests that an evaluation for hypertension is indicated. ...Read more

Obese w/ pounding heart and awareness of heartbeat ( sometimes no pain)  almost 24/7 for 3 months after course of Clarithromycin. HR is normal, and can drop to 50 at resting. EKG didn't show abnormal rhythm. What does this be?

Pounding: With no evidence of abnormally fast heart rhythm or rates, the sensation of a forceful heart beat is most likely an increased awareness of normal heart action and some anxiety, although you must check to see that your blood pressure is not elevated and it's best to avoid caffeine and alcohol. Heart rate of 50 at rest is not unusual. If symptoms persist check a heart holter monitor for 24 hours ...Read more
