Obesity Cause Of Tachycardia
Could obesity itself cause constant tachycardia (fast heart rate, even resting), heart flutters, and palpitations?
I'm tachycardic. Resting rate goes from 75 to 120-130 upon standing. I do have high blood pressure & I am obese. How to permanently fix tachycardia? Stress test 2-3 wks ago and passed just fine. What other tests may I need? What could be the cause?
BP and HR: There could be a variety of reasons for having high blood pressure with high heart rate. Please kindly see your doctor to discuss, evaluate with blood tests and imaging studies as indicated to get to the right diagnoses. There are medicines that can lower blood pressure and heart rate. ...Read more
I'm obese (bmi=41).I felt dispnea during light exercise (walking), but now also during rest. I have periods with tachycardia. Is it due to my obesity?
Tachycardia: It is not normal to have tachycardia at rest. Tachycardia means heart rate more than 100. if that's the case you need to consult your physician asap. ...Read more

Talk to your doctor: Lots of possible factors. Make sure your are well hydrated (you need some salt with the water you drink and probably up to 3 grams of sodium/day is safe). Stop caffeine. Eat a "real food" diet - make sure you cut out all of the processed foods (even things like whole wheat bread). Stick with lots of veggies/fresh meats/limited fresh fruit. See your doctor to R/O serious problems. Exercise gently. ...Read more
Dispnea and tachycardia (108 bpm) after a flight of stairs. Morning sleepiness, stunning and little lacks of memory. Why? Obesity? Cardiopathy? Ipoglicemia?
Not well understood: There are several theories proposed for deglutition tachycardia. One is direct stimulation of the left atrium by the distention of the esophagus as the swallowed substance passes. Another is that swallowing activates part of the autonomic nervous system (sympathetic or parasympathetic) to cause a direct increase in heart rate, or cause premature complexes that initiate rentrant tachycardia. ...Read more
Possibly: The autonomic cardiovascular centers are located in the hypothalamus & brainstem. Baroreceptor signals travel through the 9th and 10th cranial nerves into the central nervous system to contact neurons in the nucleus of the solitary tract in the medulla (lower brainstem). Lesions/irritation in the medulla can result in cardiovascular changes. Http://www. Cvphysiology. Com/Blood%20Pressure/BP008.htm ...Read more

Good question: With no simple answer. There are many triggers like caffeine, nicotine, alcohol, excess thyroid hormone, anxiety, stress, decongestants eg pseudoephedrine, direct stimulants eg cocaine, etc. But you also have to have potential electrical connections in your heart that you're born with or acquire eg from rheumatic fever. ...Read more
No, it is not: Alcohol can cause many abnormal heart rhythms, and none of them are very good for you, particularly if you are older and not in shape. Some of these abnormal rhythms, like atrial fibrillation ("holiday heart") can be serious and even life-threatening in some people, and if prolonged, can increase the chance of both heart failure and stroke. ...Read more

Can being on ritalin (methylphenidate) for 15 years be the cause of my daily tachycardia? I no longer take it but was wondering if this is a long term effect?
Possible: There are numerous examples of medications which cause side effects that we know are precipitated by the drug and yet when we stop the medication side effects do not go away. Therefore, I believe it's possible that chronic use of stimulant drugs such as Ritalin (methylphenidate) can cause the pacemaker in the heart to reset. All the same, get a full cardiac ; physical eval before settling on this conclusion. ...Read more
Probably unrelated: The tachycardia is probably unrelated to the act of eating per se, but may be related to what you've eaten, especially if your food contains any form of cardiac stimulant or you have a food allergy or intolerance. Unless it's occurring regularly, it's likely coincidence. ...Read more
Tachycardia: Tachycardia is caused by many factors, and there is sinus tachycardia which can be caused due to anxiety, panic attacks, exercising of any kind, certain medications, overactive thyroid.Then there is supraventricular or atrial tachycardia due to defect in the rhythm process of heart for which you need to find the cause and treatment through cardiologist. I f you have long term tachycardia see your md. ...Read more
Yes: Cushing disease is different than cushing syndrome. First, make sure the diagnosis is correct. Find out the cause of the cushing syndrome. Appropriate treatment depends on the cause. Tachycardia is one symptom of cushing syndrome. ...Read more
Sleep apnea: Sleep apnea is linked to atrial fibrillation, or other tachycardias, & may be more likely to occur at night. In some cases, the supine, or prone, position of your body may lead to irritation of the heart that sparks an abnormally fast heart rhythm. Always consider medications that could be wearing off, or stimulating the heart, at night. See your doctor for a thorough history and physical exam. ...Read more
Continue to have nightly tachycardia that keeps me up alot of the night. Daytime and nightime feeling of being on high doses of speed. What the heck can cause this? Never relaxed!
Yes: Black-outs (or syncope) are often caused by transient reductions in blood flow to the brain from a variety of causes. With ventricular tachycardia, the abnormal rhythm may be associated with a reduction in cardiac output and a temporary reduction in brain blood flow that can lead to syncope. ...Read more
Not really pulseless: When VT occurs at a fast enough rate, there is inadequate time for ventricular filling, cardiac output falls, and blood pressure falls. You may not be able to palpate a pulse but an arterial line would show a waveform that is reduced in amplitude. Rate is the key. As tissue perfusion fails, acidosis, hypoxemia and hyperkalemia result leading to ventricular fibrillation and death. ...Read more
Chicken or egg?: Depends on what you mean by "poor circulation. Rapidly beating hearts may pump blood inefficiently, reducing circulation in limbs & organs thus causing symptoms & complications. Or, clogging and hardening of the arteries may reduce blood flow to the heart, causing irregular rhythms like tachycardia. There are other more complex diseases that can also cause both. ...Read more
Dysautonomia: Dysautonomia refers to an abnormality of function of the autonomic nervous system. There are two divisions of the autonomic nervous system: the sympathetic and the parasympathetic. Although the latter occasionally may be involved, abnormal function of the sympathetic division produces the most striking symptoms of dysautonomic syndromes. The term orthostatic hypotension is often used as a synonym. ...Read more
Well it can.: Paraneoplastic syndromes of the nervous system usually can have varying symptoms of all kinds depending on the body part being injured.

Common: It's surprisingly common and can occur in normal hearts in the absence of heart disease. It can be caused by cardiac stimulants like caffeine, nicotine, amphetamine, alcohol, and certain medicines like bronchodilators, atropine, and adrenalin. Thyroid excess can cause it. Stress and lack of sleep can contribute. It occurs for no recognized reason in some. ...Read more
