Hr after exercise: It depends how much you are in shape. Is it the first day of exercise after being not so active for a long time. And also what is your bSeline HR before the exercise. Usually no it does not take that long for hr to return to normal -10-15 min of resting should make you very comfortable, drinking fluids also help.

My heart has been beating really fast when I go to bed. I have recently lost 30 lbs and have had a heart monitor which came back normal. Why?

My heart has been beating really fast when I go to bed. I have recently lost 30 lbs and have had a heart monitor which came back normal. Why?

Not uncommon: There are many reasons people have the feeling of rapid heart beats (tachycardia), some have to do with the heart and some have to do with the mind. Did you have the palpitations while you had the holter monitor on; if it "catch it", I would suggest an event monitor instead. Most cases are benign and self-limited, rarely requiring treatment. Did you have your thyroid checked? ...Read more

Sometime I feel a big boom in my chest followed by a pause of 1-2sec then my heart beat fast and go back normal. What can cause this if heart tests ok?

PVC: The heart has a pacemaker (PM) or internal clock in the upper chambers (atria) that sends a signal to the lower chambers (ventricles) which is delayed so that the ventricles contract after the atria. Premature ventricular contractions (PVCs) can occur spontaneously or be triggered by adrenaline or drugs and are always followed by a compensatory pause to return the heart to its previous rhythm. ...Read more

Woke up suddenly to hard pumping heart, when I put my hand noticed double beat like twice a sec then normal 1 beat/sec and twice/sec again fast I'm 19 go to gym, no other symptoms I have anxiety tho?

Not serious: You are likely describing premature heart beats which are not a sign of heart disease in an otherwise healthy patient. The pair of fast heart beats consist of a regular beat followed immediately by a second premature heart beat. These premature atrial (PAC) or ventricular (PVC) contractions are not uncommon. Anxiety, fatigue and caffeine can cause an increase in these premature beats. ...Read more

What can cause a blood flow from heart to liver be at borderline fast, can be normal in me? I have no symptoms, I went for annual and here I am!

Normal variant.: This could just be a normal variation for you. If you don't have any symptoms, then I wouldn't worry about it. Every time a test or study is performed on someone, you're going to find something off even if the person is perfectly healthy. It's just part of being human - no two people are exactly alike. ...Read more

Hyperthyroidism: When tachycardia is due to hyperthyroism, the heart rate should be normal if your thyroid function test is normal and a beta blocker is used to control heart rate, but if these symptoms continue, you should let your doctor know to evaluate you for other possible causes of tachycardia such as atrial fibrillation, flutter, tachy-brady syndrome, anxiety etc... ...Read more

I had unprotected sex a while back and ever since then my heart rate has become faster than usual. Is this a symptom of an STD?

NO, unless fever: A rapid heart rate is not a sign of an STD, unless it is associated with a fever. Please go for STD testing - most county health departments offer free or low cost STD testing. Then be sure to use male or female condoms along with effective contraception. If heart rate is consistently > 100 (tachycardia) or bothersome, seek medical attention. Take care! ...Read more

Fast irregular heartbeat feels like jerking & I lost my sleep pattern. Will walking/jumping jacks & more sleep get my normal heart rate back?

Fast irregular heartbeat feels like jerking & I lost my sleep pattern. Will walking/jumping jacks & more sleep get my normal heart rate back?

Exercise>noSleep>yes: Fast irregular heart beats that feel like jerking are palpitations. They are usually caused by extra heart beats which can feel like a sudden "flip-flop" in the chest OR by a short run of very fast heart beats. Palpitations are not a sign of a heart problem unless you feel very faint or dizzy with them.
Stress, fatigue, lack of sleep, caffeine can all cause them. See>http://bit. Ly/1vlj5cr ...Read more

My heart beat fast sometimes and it may last for few hours I have normal health history. Symptoms are tremor nearly fainting and shortness of breath?

Need to be seen: Despite a lack of current medical problems there are more serious issues that could arise that would give those symptoms. One possibility is a thyroid gland that is overactive or a cardiac rhythm abnormality. To make determination lab testing and examination needs to be done. This should be done immediately considering the seriousness of the symptoms. ...Read more

Chest, upper back and left arm pain. ECG report show nothing. Heart beat is faster than normal. It is heart related problem or some thing related to anxiety?

Possible: There is no perfect test, and it is possible to have heart pain with a normal ECG. Best to also check blood tests with this, and consider other tests such as a stress test if symptoms persistent. Anxiety however is still a possibility, especially with the stress you may be under dealing the the earthquake. Hope this helps! ...Read more

Can it be a heart attack if I have symptoms of cheat pain back pain arm tingling etc. Enzymes and EKG were normal 2 days ago?

Can it be a heart attack if I have symptoms of cheat pain back pain arm tingling etc. Enzymes and EKG were normal 2 days ago?

Not likely: Myocardial infarction from blockage of a coronary artery is very rare in 27 yr old women. Other heart conditions or other medical causes are possible, but a detailed evaluation is needed to identify if any might be present. Though rare, one serious and sometimes overlooked cause of chest pain/arm tingling is pulmonary embolism - blood clot in the lung. See your doctor if symptoms recur. ...Read more

I've had a fast heart rate recently. Been seen 2 times at the ER. EKG and CT scan both come back normal. But the fast heart rate continues. Causes?

High heart rate: Without lots of information about you, can't guess. Lots of things will normally increase heart rate and lots of abnormal things will increase heart rate. If you're concerned, see your doctor for a history and exam and see if it can be figured out. Among the things that cause high heart rate are hyperthyroid, hypercatechol state, anemia and hypovolemia but there are lots of others. ...Read more

Can you drink alcohol on 2.5mg bisoprolol? I do not have high blood pressure and just take it for a fast heart rate, all tests have come back normal.

Can you drink alcohol on 2.5mg bisoprolol? I do not have high blood pressure and just take it for a fast heart rate, all tests have come back normal.

A safe amount: Bisoprolol 2.5 mg is a small dose of the beta blocker. Of course, I presume that this treatment has been prescribed for you after a normal cardiovascular evaluation by your doctor. There are no special precautions regarding alcohol for those taking this medication. However, as you know, guidelines suggest moderate drinking is the equivalent of 2 alcohol drinks per day for adult men. Good wishes:) ...Read more
