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

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

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

If I didn't exercise for awhile, now I have walked for an hour each day for the past three days. Can this make my resting heart rate from 50-60 to 80?

If I didn't exercise for awhile, now I have walked for an hour each day for the past three days. Can this make my resting heart rate from 50-60 to 80?

Exercise: I would suggest that if you have not exercised for a while that you start off slowly and then increase a little bit each day. The first day walk for 20 minutes at a good pace and see how you feel. If you feel alright, on the next day walk for 30 minutes. You should aim to exercise for 30 minutes a day for 5-6 days a week. This exercise should increase your heart rate. ...Read more

Normal: A resting heart rate of 83 is normal, although it does not suggest ultimate aerobic fitness or " athlete's heart". I suggest seeing your doctor if you have concerns or are experiencing palpitations. ...Read more
