Rapid Heart Rate When Lying Down
Normal: This is a normal physiologic response as the blood tends to move toward your feet when you stand up. Your heart compensates by increasing the strength of the contraction and/or increasing the heart rate. If it is uncomfortable or you experience lightheadedness it may indicate that you are a little dehydrated. ...Read more
Can slow or increase: Standing up quickly causes blood to pool in the legs and causes the blood pressure to drop transiently. How transient depends on how compensated a person is. If dehydrated, elderly, anemic, or diabetic, then the blood pressure can remain depressed and will actually lead to a fast heart rate. The only time that the hr would slow would be if the vagus nerve got activated - vasovagal response. ...Read more

Can enalapril cause orthostatic tachycardia? When I stand up my blood pressure drops(not hypotension)and heart rate goes up. Normal when laying down.
Yes, has been descri: Orthostatic tachycardia (or postural tachycardia) has been described with enalapril. It may be due to an interaction with other medications (most commonly antidepressants and sedatives), however, & not enalapril per se. Talk to whoever prescribed the enalapril, and go over ALL of your symptoms & medications. Hopefully, you both can get to the cause & find optimum treatment. Best Wishes & Thank Yo ...Read more
I am experiencing rapid heart rate, slow heart rate and nausea (severity: mild). Heart rate from 36-123 in last 10 minutes while laying down in bed.
Get Checked Today: Please call a friend or ambulance if you need to go to ER. Concerned with the changes in the heart rate and your not feeling well. You could pass out so be careful standing up. Not sure how you are getting the heart rate numbers. It should be between 60 and 100. If these numbers are true then please seek medical attention now. ...Read more
Doubtful: Don't rely on a single measurement. I suspect you have sampling artifact. Have an impartial 3rd party measure it for you several times and see if it's reproducible. Generally, when we lie down and rest, our heart rate slows. Exceptions would be if you're having pain (e.g from acid reflux or arthritis) or you're ruminating/upset/having a panic attack. ...Read more
My heart rate is lower during the day when sitting upright, when laying down my heart rate is higher. Is this normal?
Normal variation: Heart rates vary through the day, under precise control by a nerve network and by adrenaline levels in the blood. Many things can increase the heart rate, including exercise, emotion, dehydration, and even paying attention to the heart rate. If you feel palpitations or other symptoms when your heart rate is fast, a heart monitor can help figure out if you are having any abnormal heart rhythms. ...Read more
Tinnitus: Hearing your heart beat in your ear, called tinnitus, is often benign however there are rare disorders that you should discuss with your doctor to determine if a specialist check-up (ENT) is in order. Some people are more sensitive to the rush of blood through the blood vessels near the ear and this is what causes tinnitus. Some may also just hear the heart beat at quiet times & this is benign. ...Read more
Need further evaluat: I would recommend you get an electrocardiogram(ekg) which measures the electrical activity of your heart. You could possibly be having something known as atrial fibrillation or an irregular type of heartbeat. You may also consider something called holter monitoring or an event recorder(these measure the electrical activity of the heart over a period of time i.e. 24 hours or more). ...Read more
Dizziness, blured vision and rapid heart beat while exercising.. Heart beat during rest is 89-100bpm blood pressure 117/84..Is it normal?
Discuss w doc: One expects a physiologically appropriate increase in heart rate with exercise. This could be magnified if your volume state is low (intravascular dehydration) . Symptoms of dehydration coupled with the normal sympathetic stress of activity could explain this--but if you are still symptomatic after assuring adequate hydration you should see a cardiologist for monitoring/echo-stress study. ...Read more
Not exactly: Your heart rate tends to fall lower, than resting, when you are sleeping. You may also be prone to faster heart rates, during different stages of sleep or dreaming. It's not unusual for someones, otherwise healthy, heart to go slower when you are asleep. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Confusing: I know you're limited in the number of characters you can type, but your question is very confusing to me. (maybe it's my american english?) :) for your palpitations: there are many causes/kinds. You need a 24 hour holter recording to see what's actually happening. ...Read more
Just minimally: Lisinopril and related drugs (ace/arbs) minimally lower heart rate (just 2-3 points on average), more only if the potassium goes up excessively. Other BP meds that lower heart rate more include beta-blockers, clonidine, and sometimes Diltiazem verapamil. Rates of 60 and above usually are ok, . ...Read more
