The normal heart rate 72 - 80 beats per minute. if your doctor tells you not to worry, don't it only makes it worse.


kage_ronin
you might have high blood pressure, or hypertension. depending on your stress level, you might be at risk for heart disease in the future. i suggest getting your blood pressure checked.


Maw-Maw
78-80 times depending on your blood pressure.You may need to ask them about anxiety attacks---they make you think your having a heart attack.If the Dr. said you were OK then you must not have any other symptons to make him worry.......

Average is 60-80 times per minute, but medications like Beta blockers considerably slow down peoples rate. Is anxiety an issue? People can have anxiety, their heart races, they can get chest pain, they can have numbness around the lips, hands and feet. But, if you have continued problems, go back to your doctor, he may want to do a halter monitor on you to try to catch the heart beats that are causing you distress. If you have trouble that bothers you, you can go to an ER and they can hook you up fairly quickly (depending on what's going on in the ER) to an EKG machine to rule trouble out. If you continue having trouble, no matter what the cause, seek help to resolve your issues.

Do you know how to take your pulse?

Put your index finger on the underside of your wrist near your thumb until you feel your pulse. Look at a watch and count how many beats per minute.

Your resting heart rate should be around 72 per minute. It gets higher as you age and if it's above 90 that's getting kind of high. A well conditioned athlete might be down around 50 at rest.

There's a calculator, below which will help you figure out what your heart rate should be during exercise.

You might be getting panic attacks. I'd go to another doctor if you are getting periodic numbness in your face. Learn to take your pulse so you can tell the doctor what your heart rate is during these episodes because when you go for a checkup it might not be happening.

The normal heart rate is between 60 - 100 beats per min. There are many things that can make this number vary. For example, a person's weight, level of activity, and general health. Medications and drugs, along with smoking can make this number different also. If parts of your body are going numb, you need to tell your doctor this, or get a second doctor to look you over. Hope this helps.

The normal range is 60 to 100 bpm. You should learn how to take your own pulse so that you will have a record of this. For all I know you may have an anxiety disorder or you do drugs. You haven't said much - such as how often they occur. In any case, keep a diary of these "events", the date and time they occur, your pulse during these events, what you were doing just prior to these "events" and how long they last. If they occur more than once a day for 3 consecutive days, report it to your doctor.
