What Causes A Thready Pulse
Yes. It can: Acute intense pain causes the release of adrenaline and thus can increase heart rate, the degree varies based on individual's pain pain tolerance/threshold. Chronic pain may not increase heart rate much as the body (heart) is adapted to such condition over an extended period of time. If your heart is persistently high or excessive, it mayb something else and you should consult your doc. Good lcuk. ...Read more

My BP changes from 103/67 to 95/69 and pulse from 90 to 134 just by standing up from sitting. What would cause this? Or is this normal?
You have orthostatic: Hypotension with compensatory tachycardia/ fast heart beat. It could be from side effects of your BP meds, dehydration, diabetes, heart disease, autoimmune condition, autonomic dysfunction etc. Get an explanation and reassurance from your dr. Best wishes!

Bp of 110/30. Is this cause for concern? Another verified bp. At the time, pulse was 70. Several hours later, hr is 100. Hr is normally around 45
Diastolic reading: Likely an error...Hr fluctuation suggests possible arrhythmia. ..Get evaluated. ...Read more
It depends: This could be a "normal" rhythm just going slow - sinus bradycardia. This may be due to medications, thyroid issues, high exercise conditioning, or from a "sick" sinus node. The pulse may also be slow if there is slow or absent communication from the atria - partial or complete heart block. This could be potentially quite dangerous. An ekg should be able to tell for sure. ...Read more
No.: That is only a mild elevation of ALT. It is not directly related to an elevation of pulse, BUT the disease that is causing the elevation of ALT may cause your pulse to be high. The goal here is to discover what is producing elevation of the ALT. The list of things that could do this is very long... Keep seeing your doc until this is nailed down. ...Read more
The feeling of a rapid heart beat can be normal, but sometimes can be associated with an abnormal heart beat.
If the thyroid, electrolytes, anemia, or structural heart abnormality is present, the chance of abnormal heart rhythm increases.
Full evaluation requires an event monitor or holter monitor to know exactly what the heart rhythm and rate is. ...Read more

Hyperthyroidism vs: Several reasons for high pulse. All require that you go see your family doc. Well, maybe not all. 1st are you dehydrated? Drink enough water to make your urine clear. Then check your pulse. If still high, then go see your doc.

My pulse is ~65-95 when sitting and usually is ~55 when laying down. When standing after sitting it rises ~10-20bpm. Is this a cause for concern?
No: Part of standing results in an increase pulse. This is an orthostatic response. If you are not symptomatic this is not concerning. ...Read more
Does having an elevated cohb (nonsmoker) cause a false normal pulse ox reading? Also methb & o2/g hb are on the highest sides of normal. Hb & oxy are ok
Carbon monoxide: If you are exposed to carbon monoxide from wood stoves or other sources you can have a high level in your blood. Co binds tighter to hg than o2 so the pulse ox is only an estimate based on normal parameters. I suggest a co moniter/ alarm for safety. ...Read more
I noticed my pulse in the morning being weaker and higher than usual (~80-90), it falls back to ~70 in the evening, bloodpr looks okay, possibl causes?
Technically in medicine we classify a normal heart rate as 60-100 beats per minute.
You seem to fall within this range.
So unless you are having palpitations, lightheadedness, shortness of breath, fainting or some other symptoms than just the variation of your pulse - I wouldn't worry about it. ...Read more
Adrenaline surge...: Adrenaline is the principal mediator of the "fight or flight" response. This prepares your body for immediate action. Pupils dilate to increase light transmission, heart rate and blood pressure go up and blood is shunted away from other organs to the skeletal muscles. If this occurring in the absence of a stimulus, it is likely due to hypoglycemia or low blood sugar. Check for Insulin resistance. ...Read more
Irregular heartbeat: An irregular pulse is usually due to irregular heartbeat which in turn is often due to benign variation in electrical activity of the heart. This is particularly true if not accompanied by other cardiac symptoms, progressive nature or exertional symptoms. However, an ekg is appropriate and required if any other symptoms are present. ...Read more
Many can cause this: A bounding pulse is a strong and forceful heart rate.

Unlikely: Timing is everything. I doubt your measurements are accurate because they're not physiologic. Try lying down and being still for 10 minutes and count your pulse. Then try sitting up for 10 minutes. Your pulse will likely be within 10 beats both ways and, if anything, faster sitting up. ...Read more
What causes my head to painfully pulse with my heartbeat when stretching or standing up to quickly?
See your doctor: The cause may be benign, but it's possible that you have a mild case of intracranial hypotension: Either you're underproducing CSF or removing it too fast or you have a tiny leak from a little hole or tear in your dura mater. This would cause your brain to sag a little when you stand up. Painful but probably not dangerous. It can be tested for. This isn't a diagnosis, just an educated guess. ...Read more
