Should i be concerned my heart rate is 115 resting but I have a cold wondering if that's why?

Should i be concerned my heart rate is 115  resting but I have a cold wondering if that's why?

Some concern: If your rate is fast but regular, it may be due to some dehydration, which may be due to having a cold and not ingesting enough food and liquid. If it's fast and irregular, that needs to be sorted out, and soon. You may have atrial fib or some other abnormal rhythm. If this persists, or is irregular, you need to notify your doctor, especially if you have other symptoms such as dizziness or pain. ...Read more

A : A heart murmur is nothing more than turbulent blood flow through the heart and can be caused by many different situations ranging from completely benign (vigorous flow through a normally pumping heart, or pregnancy) or more serious conditions such as valve narrowing (stenosis), leaking (regurgitation), or a hole in the heart. Murmurs are typically graded based on the loudness (grade 1-6) and the description can often give clues as to the possible cause. The only way to know for sure if a murmur is benign or more concerning is to have an echocardiogram done which will show any abnormalities that might be present. I would discuss this with your physician and consider this if you are really concerned. ...Read more

Bp at rest after activity is 100/69. But when active it is really high. Sometimes i think i may get a heart attack. Should i be concerned?

Bp at rest after activity is 100/69. But when active it is really high. Sometimes i think i may get a heart attack. Should i be concerned?

Good question.: It's normal for ones BP to rise with exertion, perhaps even to a systolic of 150 mm hg with routine exercise. Cardiologists include ones BP response to exercise when performing a stress test; it enables one to determine ones peak pressure as well as how quickly the heart rate and BP return to normal following the test. Get the advice of your doctor. ...Read more

Sometimes i can feel my heart beating a little off.. Is this something I should be worried about?

Probably not: Most people have an early or ectopic heart beat once in a while, and these are generally quite harmless. If you are concerned, or certainly if the irregular heart beat feeling is associated with dizziness, shortness of breath, or other symptoms - see your doctor where further evaluation may consist of an ecg, an overnight her cording of your heart beats, or other testing. ...Read more
