I have a very rapid heart rate what does it mean for the shortrun?

Rapid heart rate. Rapid heart rate (tachycardia) means the heart beats at more than 100 per minute. It could just bebenign transient (physical activity, anxiety). Its persistence can be brought on by shock (profuse blood loss, toxic infection) or a disruption of the electrical rhythm of the heart (atrial or ventricular tachycardia). The latter conditions are serious and need immediate evaluation by a cardiologist.

After having uppers teeth pulled yesterday, 2 surgically. I have a headache and a rapid heart rate between 95-102. Does this mean I've developed an infection?

Not quite.. Sorry to hear you're not feeling well. Your headache and mildly elevated heart rate may be just be results/side effects of the procedure, secondary to the pain. I would suggest you try taking an anti-inflammatory, such as Ibuprofen or Naproxen to see if this would help. If you develop a fever or swelling in the area, that could mean an infection, and you should call the dentist. Best wishes. Read more...
Possibly. Generally, dental infections take longer than a day to develop. Having upper teeth pulled can certainly lead to headaches once the anesthesia wears off. A pulse of 95 may be due simply to pain. On the other hand, fevers and shaking chills are usually a sign of infection for which to seek help. Most oral surgeons prescribe antibiotics and pain medications; I would recommend contacting yours. Read more...

Not necessarily. You could have an infection, but it wouldn't likely show up yet. It's normal to have pain, swelling, jaw soreness and some bleeding/seepage at this point. Dehydration would cause headache and faster heart rate. Hydrate well and eat healthy food that does not injure your wound area; take your anti-inflammatories/medications; read your post-op info sheet and follow-up w/your surgeon as needed. Read more...

Structured CBT. Look for a psychologist who provides structured cbt or cognitive behavioral therapy. This approach teaches you how to better understand and control your anxiety. It is so much teaching, I have my patients audiotape the sessions and take notes when they listen to the sessions again at home. Homework assignments are critical for the development of emotional control skills. Read more...
