Prehypertension: Blood pressure is not ideal and would fall into prehypertension range. It is excellent that you are exercising regularly and are on low salt diet. Weight loss may help.

Athlete arrhythmia: Arrhythmias are not infrequently documented in athletes and can be a source of morbidity and mortality, particularly ventricular tachyarrhythmias leading to sudden cardiac death.

Hello, my regular heart record is 115, and i never did sports, how am i supposed to regulate a lower record? And doing sports harmful ?
Very difficult to : Regulate your own heart rate. More importantly is finding out why your heart rate is 115/min. Obesity/physical deconditioning, hyperthyroid state, excess caffeine and energy drinks, dehydration, arrhythmias etc. I will recommend to see a physician before starting any physical activities like exercising. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Playing a sport intensely,gets my heart to start beatting very fast (2 beats per sec),lasting for more than an hour even if I stopped playing.W is it?
Water will, too: If fast heart rate is due to dehydration, rehydration in any form will lower it. Water is the best choice, unless very strenuous, prolonged exercise, then sports drinks may have some slight advantage. Never count caffeinated or alcoholic beverages as rehydration, they actually work as diuretics and make the problem worse. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
It shouldn't: There are multiple types of heart block. These range from benign congenital blocks where there is no significant impact to heart function to blocks where a pacemaker is required. Even if you were one of the rare people who required a pacemaker - with modern pacemakers, normal heart function and the ability to perform your usual daily activities is the expected outcome. ...Read more
What kind of annual test should I do for my heart? Am 59 female, BMI of 22, and returning to active sports after 7 years of light physical activity.
Physical/EKG: See your doctor. Getting "cleared" for exercise primarily hinges on your history. If you've been active without symptoms and your ekg is normal, then there is no evidence that a stress test "just to be sure" will prevent anything in a person who feels well. Any test can have a false positive result, and a positive stress test means an invasive test like a heart cath (which has complications). ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Supervision : Congestive heart failure has varying degrees of severity and exercise should never be performed if causing symptoms.

Is a heart murmur patient fit enough to participate in physically demanding sports such as boxing?
I feel a sharp pain in my heart , it comes suddenly often , or after playing some sports , so what did you think is that?
Nothing vs ER: Could be nothing more than ligaments and muscle stretching, statistically in your age group, most common and non-life threatening. However, the riskier side is dramatic ie sudden death due to a heart abnormality. See your sports medicine doctor or sports medicine cardiologist (heart doctor). Asap! and refrain from activity that brings the pain on. ...Read more
