High heart rate questions?
« on: December 18, 2013, 11:25:32 AM »
Before I get up in the morning my heart rate is in the 60s/70s and as soon as I get up and walk downstairs it's in the high 80s-115. It won't climb back down into the 70s till I sit or lie back down. I'm not doing anything strenuous like running or working out. It feels unnerving to have it be at 100 while doing simple things around the house. Anyone else get this? Is this bad for your heart? Is it just anxiety? I know it's suppose to fluctuate during any activity, but should it be that extreme?

Your heart rate naturally increases when you're active and decreases when you're at rest. This is precisely what it's supposed to do.

Mines been doing that for awhile now. I too freak out over it. Its hard for me to believe just standing could make your heart rate over 100. Eating also makes mine go high. Especially carbs and sugar. Message me if you want maybe we can help each other.

100 bpm is not that much, I get 90-100 when I simply walk around the house. On a light excercise I get 130, on a hard excercise up to 185. Try working out, making your heart rate rise and then make a note of your HR. Then rest for 2 minutes and measure your HR again. If it dropped for less than 10-15 in those 2 minutes, go se a doctor. If it drops 15-40, you're good. Mine drops  60-70 but I'm in shape so...

My resting HR is around 84-92 and when I am exercising/walking it goes up to about 130-140, and 165 during hard running. Don't worry! I freak out over it too.

I work out weekly and am in good shape, but it still bothers me. When I am sitting it is fine, but when I stand and walk around it is easily 90-105. I'm sure that always worrying makes it higher just with the extra adrenaline. Who knows.
