Why my heart rate is constantly always so high ?

Hi I was just wondering why my heart rate is constantly always so high!? Ever since I could remember, my heart rate is very high around 84bpm. My blood pressure is pretty low, around 110/79 I m 5 9 on the skinnier side at 125lbs. I play a lot of sports and am usually more active than my friends who i play basketball with but! It especially shows that i can t keep up with them when i m playing 1v1. I would tire out very quickly and dehydrate very quickly without ever understanding why. What should I do? Run more? I currently don t run regularly and am concentrating more on weights and eating but am willing to increase my caloric intake to add in a running routine. I m 18 years old.

Yep if this is your resting heart rate even upon waking is higher than normal of around 60-65bpm. Yah have to do two things! First get a doctors referral to Cardiac Specialist and get him to check you out. That coming out OK........then go and do an Aerobic performance checkout at a clinic. They will put heart monitors on you and measure your Heart/Lung function while you pedal like mad on a bicycle type machine. If it turns out you are medically can then start an Aerobic conditioning programme. This takes you away from static exercises like weights and bending and stretching into Swimming Running Cycling and Power Walking. The more you do this and gradually intensify the acitivity, the stronger your heart will become and the slower your heart rate will become. If you check reliable sources you will find that Super Athletes can have a standing heartbeat rate as low as 35 beats per minute! Try not to mentally stress about your condition as Worry can raise the it does in fearful situations for us all. Good luck and Good health to you!
