Sleeping Heart Rate Chart
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 18 years old and I was wondering if a heart rate of 63 bpm is healthy. (I am laying down to sleep)?
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.See 2 more doctor answers
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.See 1 more doctor answer
Overweight but with onset of sleep heart rate in low 60s. Often jolt awake right away and heart rate in low 50s, why?
When I wake from sleeping in the evening before work my heart rate is higher and I can't lay back down to sleep, why?
Count your pulse: And then report it to your doctor. It may a)normal or b)abnormal. Further recommendations will depend.
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.
When is the best time to check your heart rate? When going to sleep and when I first wake up in the morning it's lower. During the day it's higher.
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.
My heart rate average is around 60-80 but when I lying down or sleep in decrease to 50. Is it normal?
Heart rate: Yes it's fine.Get a more detailed answer ›
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.".
Hi. I sometimes measure my heart rate. Most of the time, it varies from 70 to 85 bpm, but before I sleep it varies from 50 to 65. Is this too low?
Not necessarily if: ...you are an athletic individual, and your slower heart rate correlates with a supine position.
Could be.: If you are a physically fit individual and do not have any history of cardiac problems or cardiac symptoms and a normal ekg it is very likely normal for you. If you haven't had an ekg it would wise to get one.
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.
