I just made 35 push-ups, and my heart rate sky-rocketed to 198 bpm. Is this heart rate too fast, for that exercise intensity?

Out of shape: If accurate, HR 198 is high and possibly related to exercise intensity in someone out of shape. Start training in an exercise program using aerobics first and than add push ups and weights. You did not tell me the age but if you are over 35-40 and overweight you should clear the exercise program with your physician ...Read more

Family history of heart attack and stroke. My bp, cholesterol and glucose all normal at exam. Work hard on diet and exercise. Any other tests i need?

Maybe: Normal & optimal aren't the same. I order a crp, homocysteine, &/or lipid NMR if my patient looks normal but has a parent, sibling, or many family members with an early event. Holidays are great for getting specifics about your family's health. Include diabetes, any cancers, blood or thyroid disorders, unexplained or early deaths. Then take that info to your doctor and decide if you need more. ...Read more

Fitbit, Apple Watch, and every wearable seems to tout the ability to read heart rate. But how important is heart rate, really?

NoNeedIfYouCanCount: Well, if you didn't have one you'd be in a lot of trouble. On the other end, a per cent of maximal possible heart rate is used as a gauge of the degree of exertion. It stems from Cooper's Aerobic books and helps you monitor your overall fitness, as is the time after exercise to get back to your normal rate. At your age, shoot for about 150 and 20-30 beats decrease per minute after.Formulas online ...Read more

Low blood pressure, lack of urination, no appetite, heart flutters and pounds at times, tingling in left arm, low heart rate, 4 lead EKG showed fine?

Many issues: You mention several symptoms. Some, all, or none of them may be related. With regard to heart "flutters, " "pounds, " and "low heart rate, " you should do a 30-day heart monitor so that your symptoms can be correlated to your heart rhythm. A "normal" ekg is not helpful if you were not having symptoms at the moment it was taken. Other symptoms can be investigated after heart is sorted out. ...Read more

Worried?: What are you worried about, Julia? A rapid heart beat and shortness of breath need to be addressed.

Full cardiac work up was normal. Cardiologist said heart is healthy.During hot shower in the morning my heart rate increases&very rapid.Normal?age 28

Talk to MD again: I would make sure they not only checked you for clogged arteries but rather to make sure the electricity side of your heart, the part that controls the rate and the rythym is working correctly. Sometimes people where an EKG for a day (Holter monitor) so as to see what is happening when you are not at the office when of course everything feels fine - just like your car at the mechanic. ...Read more

Improve fitness: A healthy resting heart rate would be under 60 bpm, and for light exercise it shouldn't go over about 110. That is a good measure of fitness but can also be affected by medications, caffeine, dehydration, and lack of sleep. ...Read more

Your : Your BP should be closer to 130/70, systolic BP of 150 is too high. You can try decreasing the salt in your diet, or you may need a change in medication. Also note that a common side effect is diovan (valsartan). As far as your heart rate is concerned, less than 60 is considered low, however if you are physically fit, your resting heart rate can be low. It sounds like your cardiac wrk up was completely negative therefore i don't feel your heart rate is an issue. I would focus on getting better control of your bp. Please follow up with your doctor. All the best. ...Read more
