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

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

Resting heart rate always beat fast with little exertion? Have anxiety, but heart shouldn't be fast all the time should it? Dont exercise like I use to

Anxiety and exertion: The heart does beat faster after exertion. Anxiety is your body's alarming system and it is fear based. Just like the smoke detectors in your home. If you are not exercising like you used to, you may experience an increased heart rate while you get back into shape. If you suffer from anxiety, you may want to work on what it is you are afraid of and why. ...Read more

Trick Question?: Well... If you just finished exercise at 70% pmhr, your hr is... (drumroll)... 70% pmhr. Now if you're asking about recovery, hr will generally decline to 50% pmhr within 5 minutes for most people, though it depends heavily on whether you had an anaerobic component in there too. ...Read more
