Doctor :   Hi
Doctor :   I am
User :   Hi
User :   Hi there, I am almost 41 and generally fit. My resting heart rate is quite normal at around 65-75 bpm and at night in bed it is generally around 48-60 bpm.
User :   I work out at the gym but have not done too much of aerobic activity in the last 18 months, and this is to do with the fact as soon as I go for a walk by heart rate jumps to 155+ and if I go for a very casual jog, within a minute it is up to 170+.
User :   I have had stress tests and checked by a cardiologist and everything seems to be normal but I am still very uneasy about my heart rate rising so quickly.
User :   Is it because my level of fitness has dropped and I need to build it up again and try and stay at that high heart rate, or should I be cautious about going up so quickly to such a high heart rate.
Doctor :   Do you have any symptoms apart from your finding of heart rate
User :   no, not at all
Doctor :   Then you should not worry at all
Doctor :   There are most people who have raised HR and no symptoms
User :   do i exerxcise at this high rate?
Doctor :   and medical evidence says not to interfere with them
User :   or try and stay below it?
Doctor :   Your Heart rate can go upto 220 - your age
