Rapid Heart Rate Pulse
I have random heart palpitations. When I check my pulse when that happens, the heart rate is not particularly fast. Is that normal? I do feel pinching
Don't be alarmed: Palpitations is the word patient use to describe a fluttering sensation in the chest caused by skipped heart beats or rapid heartbeats. Patients with no heart disease can often experience palpitations. Sometimes they are brought on by anxiety, fatigue, caffeine and cough and cold medicines.Beta blockers are sometimes prescribed if the palpitations are annoying or very frequent.

*Resting heart rate 90+ for last 2 weeks *Tachycardia, on verapamil to slow down pulse *Exercise 5x/week *on Clobetasol for alopecia *thyroid good ???
How do you FEEL?: Individual heart rates vary tremendously and there's almost no science here, though there's a great deal of superstition. How is your blood pressure? I trust you're not taking a medicine as tricky as verapamil to treat a number. Since you're exercising, and I take it have normal exercise tolerance without being interrupted by shortness of breath, I'd urge you to be thankful for good health. ...Read more
Resting vs activity: Resting hr for adults ranges 60-100 BPM comparing to a new born of 140-160. Adults with persistent resting hr above 100 is concerning and should be checked out. Cardiovascularly fit (such as long-distance runners) people typically have low heart rate. If no having no bothersome symptoms at all, lower heart at rest is generally better--as we don't have unlimited # of beats. Consult doc. Good luck. ...Read more
Don't see it happen: Lots of kids have used benadryl (diphenhydramine). Haven't see kids get a high heart rate from it. A high heart rate usually happens with fever in children. The bronchodilators like albuterol (for wheezing) raise the heart rate, and the decongestants like sudafed can also do it. Being dehydrated, such as with vomiting or diarrhea, will raise one's heart rate. ...Read more
Help! My resting heart rate was 50.. And the pulse of even said 45 .. I'm 22 non smoker .. Is this too low ?
Slow pulse: If you are a trained athlete, this may be normal. If not, this is a low resting pulse of 50 or less is slow, and may or may not be clinically significant. Best to check with your doctor, who will take a complete history and order appropriate tests, including and ECG (electrocardiogram). ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Take 5 mg of bystolic (nebivolol) in the evening ...pulse during day 105/65 heart rate 80...is this too low?
Got the azumio heart rate app. My pulse graph is not regular like my husband's. Is that a flag for arythmia? Or not? Recommendations, anyone?
I am a 4th year medical student and I have a question about my heart rate..at night my pulse is always below 60, once it was 48bpm..is it normal?
Normally my pulse around this time of day is 77 while im just resting watching yv today its 65 should I be worried about this drop of heart rate?
I like heart rate to be 60-75 it occasionally spikes to 90-92. Is this dangerous? I take 50mg of atenolol. Spikes when I check pulse obsessively.
No: A heart rate of 92 is perfectly safe. It sounds like you already suspect that checking your pulse obsessively is not helpful and may be reinforcing your anxiety. Substituting a healthy outlet for compulsive tendencies can be a useful mechanism for dealing with anxiety. Daily aerobic exercise may be something to try and coincidentally improves heart health. ...Read more
I get angry at myself when my pulse isn't below 69 cause im very healthy far from overweight yet for the past week heart rate is 80-100. Is this safe?
Does heart rate change every minute? Is it normal?I am always checking my pulse like obsessively. Very anxious about it.
I sometimes notice my heart rate speeds up very high. I was just cleaning and my pulse was 160. This doesn't happen all the time just randomly. Why?
May be extra pathway: You have what is called a paroxysmal (out of the blue and self limited rapid heart rate) tachycardia. This can be because of a hereditary electrical conduction disorder or an sensitive conduction system that fires randomly if you do not get enough sleep, take caffeine, use pseudo-fed type decongestants, or drink alcohol or use energy drinks like Monster. Usually benign but see cardiologist for Dx. ...Read more
