My Resting Heart Rate Is 120
Resting heart rate of 99bpm, after exercise, my heart rate is 120bpm but goes back to 99bpm. Ekg is normal. See cardiologist?
Heart rate: At your age a low heart rate of 99 is a little unusual. Your primary md could start your evaluation with an ekg. I would also consider a non cardiac cause such as hyperthyroidism or anemia. I would also think you can achieve a much higher rate than 120. You didn't mention how hard you were exercising. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Orthostatic: For some reason you are orthostatic - when heart rate increases with sitting or standing up. This is usually associated with low blood volume - bleeding, dehydration (diarrhea, vomiting) or internal volume loss (fluid in the belly usually due to low albumine state). If this is sudden (started within last week) - seek urgent care. If that been going on for a long time, see your doctor. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

A normal resting heart rate for adults ranges from 60 to 100 beats a minute: Generally, a lower heart rate at rest implies more efficient heart function and better cardiovascular fitness. For example, a well-trained athlete might have a normal resting heart rate closer to 40 beats a minute. To measure your heart rate, simply check your pulse. Place your index and third fingers on your neck to the side of your windpipe. To check your pulse at your wrist, place two fingers between the bone and the tendon over your radial artery — which is located on the thumb side of your wrist. When you feel your pulse, count the number of beats in 15 seconds. Multiply this number by 4 to calculate your beats a minute. Keep in mind that many factors can influence heart rate, including: Activity level, Fitness level, Air temperature, Body position (standing up or lying down, for example), Emotions, Body size, Medications. Although there's a wide range of normal, an unusually high or low heart rate may indicate an underlying problem. Consult your doctor if your resting heart rate is consistently above 100 beats a minute (tachycardia) or if you're not a trained athlete and your resting heart rate is below 60 beats a minute (bradycardia) — especially if you have other signs or symptoms, such as fainting, dizziness or shortness of breath. ...Read more
