Blood pressure upon standing no reading 4 times then its 90/64 heart rate 101 an sitting is 97/64 89 heart is this ok i am lightheaded weak ?

Blood pressure upon standing no reading 4 times then its 90/64 heart rate 101  an sitting is 97/64 89 heart is this ok    i am lightheaded weak ?

Change in BP: There is a possible link here to a condition called orthostatic hypotension. In this condition, the blood pressure is poorly maintained in the standing position, causing lightheadedness and sometimes weakness. Lying down normally helps. Sometimes special testing like tilt table testing is used to diagnose this. There are many treatments. Would recommend you have this checked out. ...Read more

Is this normal qt interval 335 and qtc 435 and heart rate 104? Ecg showed sinus tachycardia,

Is this normal qt interval 335 and qtc 435 and heart rate 104? Ecg showed sinus tachycardia,

HR slightly fast : A hr of 104 at rest (sinus tach) is slightly higher than the normal range of hr's between 60-100 at rest. That said, there could be plenty of reasons that this coud happen (like anxiety, dehydration, caffeine, pain, etc). Also anemia, hyperthyroidism , breathing or pulmonary problems could result in physiologically appropriate faster hr's. Inappropriate sinus tach considered if no cause seen. ...Read more

Blood Pressure: 117/68 Resting Heart Rate Sitting: 75bpm - 85bpm Exercise everyday. Friend's sitting resting heart: 70bpm - 75bpm why? Heart Disease?

Blood Pressure: 117/68
Resting Heart Rate Sitting: 75bpm - 85bpm
Exercise everyday.  Friend's sitting resting heart: 70bpm - 75bpm why? Heart Disease?

Variation: There can be a lot of variation between individuals resting heart rates. In general, the more "fit" you are cardiovascular wise, the lower your resting heart rate will be; so you friend may be a bit more "fit" than you. But in reality that's a very small difference and if many factors may contribute to day to day variations. Neither of those heart rate ranges suggest "heart disease". ...Read more

Symptoms fatigue / headaches/ malaise. Work up 2008 negative except elevated CRP now elevated CRP 2.73, sed rate 22, ANA positive speck 1:40, ch50>60?

Symptoms fatigue / headaches/ malaise. Work up 2008 negative except elevated CRP now elevated CRP 2.73, sed rate 22, ANA positive speck 1:40, ch50>60?

That's good: I would urge you to draw no conclusion from any sed rate reading that's not extremely high unless there's specific symptoms and signs. Millions of healthy young adults have positive ANA at a titer of 1:40 speckled. I'd urge you to get into a fitness-focused lifestyle, hang out with quality friends and do meaningful things. Best wishes. ...Read more

Fast heart rate around 100-110 bpm. Healthy and active, limited caffeine use, normal blood tests, EKG for heart murmur when i was young was normal??

Possibly: Having a slightly high heart rate with no other symptoms could be normal or due to anxiety. Granted you had an EKG when you were younger it might be wise to see your doctor if recheck of that would be indicated. Good luck. ...Read more

Diastolic clock-making cardiac rate sgpt=120?

Diastolic clock-making cardiac rate sgpt=120?

Please re-send: A diastolic click is always worrisome. Get an echocardiogram. If your SGPT is that high, find out why -- repeat off alcohol, painkillers and whatever else you don't need, and if it's still up, start the work up for viral hepatitis family (B, C), hemochromatosis, Wilson's, antitrypsin deficiency, lupoid hepatitis. ...Read more

Is it safe to run at slow pace, although heart rate goes into 90% range (190+) after 10 min. Resting heart rate, BP and stress test are all normal. ?

Is it safe to run at slow pace, although heart rate goes into 90% range (190+) after 10 min. Resting heart rate, BP and stress test are all normal. ?

Running pace: Yes. Remember that you calculate the desired heart rate for exercise by the formula: 70% x (220 - yourage) as your target heart rate. Your maximal heart rate is just 220 minus yourage. As long as you don't exceed your maximal heart rate, you should be ok. With continued exercise, your pulse will trend lower during exercise. ...Read more

4 yr old has normal rhythm heart rate but speeds ups then slows down by about 20 BPM every 10-30 seconds. Also having single and multiple pvcs ?

4 yr old has normal rhythm heart rate but speeds ups then slows down by about 20 BPM every 10-30 seconds. Also having single and multiple pvcs

?

Rhythm: it might be OK to have some rhythm rate variation, but we can't tell for sure without seeing actual ECGp or Holter. If he has several PVCs a day then he needs an evaluation by a pediatric electrophysiologist like myself. You can consult me or one of us if you need more detailed info. www.healthtap.com/volkantuzcu ...Read more
