Is a heart rate of 43 during sleep normal? I am a 34 year old female.

Normal, yes!: It's common for heart rates of normal individuals to drop during sleep. We frequently see rates as low as high 30s in patients on telemetry in the hospital during overnight monitoring.

My super fast heart rate in the mornings is interrupting my sleep. Is this normal?

My super fast heart rate in the mornings is interrupting my sleep. Is this normal?

See cardiologist: Depending on your stress level, such as awakening during a disturbing dream, your heart rate may rise well into the 100's bpm; however, "arrhythmias", such as supraventricular tachycardia (SVT) can also occur and awaken you from sleep. SVT is an abnormally fast heart rhythm, due to a short circuit in your heart. See your doctor, cardiologist, or heart rhythm specialist for an evaluation.

I'm not an athlete or considered 'fit' but my heart rate whilst sleeping goes as low as 43bpm is this normal?

I'm not an athlete or considered 'fit' but my heart rate whilst sleeping goes as low as 43bpm is this normal?

Be seen: It could be normal, but it would be wise to be checked and probably have an EKG. There are people who just have a slow heart rate, known as bradycardia, but there are also people who have a heart block that may need treatment. An EKG can distinguish between the two.

Why does the heart rate drop during sleep? And is it possible to have some disorder that does this while awake?

Why does the heart rate drop during sleep? And is it possible to have some disorder that does this while awake?

Relaxation: The heart rate drops in sleep because the body and mind are relaxed and not active. Also, circadian rhythms lower your stress hormones and increase others to allow the body and mind time to recuperate. Heart rate can and should have low periods during the day when resting. Biofeedback, and other meditation skills can help lower the heart rate during the day as well.

While I'm sleeping my heart rate speeds up and have me feeling like I'm about to fall out of bed. Am I having anxieties?

Take your pulse: Try to take your pulse in your wrist or in your neck. See Count the number of beats in 1 minute. Normal is <100 beats per minute. It gets higher when you exercise or move around, but when lying in bed, it should be <100. If short of breath, dizzy, see your doctor today. If the pulse is normal, then it may be anxiety, and you'll want to see your doctor for that too. Avoid caffeine, cigs, sudafed.

Healthy Hearts: Heart rates vary from moment to moment and from activity to activity. I know of no reason for a young man to be checking his heart rate repeatedly throughout the day and see nothing of concern about this in your health history on your profile.

My heart rate often slows to low 50s before sleep when very tired and have exercised a fair amount that day. Am not physically fit. Is this normal?

Could be: If you are young and in good shape, a pulse in the fiftys especially at rest would not be alarming the question would be if you have any other symptoms related to your heart do you have any palpitations, shortness of breath or unusual fatigue with exercise? Then you should be evaluated by a cardiologist.

I get a sensation during onset of sleep where my body seems to freeze and my heart rate falls into the 50s and I rush awake?

A bit strange: Likely benign at your age, but i'd have u see your internist or a cardiologist. A 14 day event recorder might solve that pulse issue. Could anxiety play a part here? That'd need to b worked out. I wonder about your diet: see our website = www. Thepmc. Org re what that should be. My book might help"maximum healing.".

Is it normal that my heart rate is 64 while resting in bed before sleeping??

Is it normal that my heart rate is 64 while resting in bed before sleeping??

That sounds ok...: But, the question is, does one have some illness or symptom that is causing one to worry? A heart rate of 64 in a young adult at rest sounds fine, presuming the adult is in general good health.
