Returning To Resting Heart Rate After Exercise
Resting heart rate of 99bpm, after exercise, my heart rate is 120bpm but goes back to 99bpm. Ekg is normal. See cardiologist?

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.

Normally the HR max is 220-age in years. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
