Bp before exercise: 130/83, after exercise: 100/60. 2 hours after that time: 95/60, heart rate 85 bpm. Without beta blocker. Is it normal / abnormal?

BP should be high: You are in beta blockers. Medications that will decrease the normal response of blood pressure and heart rate to exercise. If no beta blockers your blood pressure should be a little higher right after exercise. Have you have a stress test? What are the echo results? Any other symptoms? Dizziness after standing from chair? Check with your doctor. ...Read more

Y would diastolic BP lower after exercise, is that normal. How quickly should your heart rate go up during exercise and how far. Is 80 high resting ra?

Y would diastolic BP lower after exercise, is that normal. How quickly should your heart rate go up during exercise and how far. Is 80 high resting ra?

Yes!: Normally diastolic blood pressure will fall during exercise and for several hours afterwards. This is because off vasodilation that normally occurs. Systolic BP should always rise. However, in hypertension, the diastolic pressure will rise too, imposing an unnecessary work load on the heart. Increase in heart rate is based on exercise intensity. Normally the HR max is 220-age in years. ...Read more

Resting heart rate of 99bpm, after exercise, my heart rate is 120bpm but goes back to 99bpm. Ekg is normal. See cardiologist?

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 more

My heartbeat feels very weak and the artery in my neck feels strained, after exercise feels worse heart rate high but can't feel it, cardio tests OK?

Weak heart beat: Not enough information and no question. I do not know what you mean by heartbeat. Do u mean pulse in your wrist? I do not know what you mean by artery in neck feels strained.

26, obese (bmi 41), BP 117/76. Resting heart rate only 54-60. After exercise it hardly raises. Had normal ecg/stress test last year. Is this normal?

26, obese (bmi 41), BP 117/76. Resting heart rate only 54-60. After exercise it hardly raises. Had normal ecg/stress test last year. Is this normal?

Not necessarily: As your heart rate should augment (increase) during exercise. In fact, for a stress test to be considered truly diagnostic it is defined by the you achieving a certain heart rate. If your heart rate doesn't increase either you had non-diagnostic stress test due to suboptimal heart rate levels or have some chronotropic insufficiency - as in an abnormal ability to increase your heart rate. ...Read more
