While laying in bed I felt my heart pounding and so I took my pulse it was 103 normally it is 85 or 90 is this ok?
The normal resting heart rate can vary between 60 and 100 beats per minute. An increased heart rate can be due to a variety of causes like anxiety, panic, heart problems, etc. If this is happening to your frequently, then it is better to see a doctor for a detailed evaluation.
 
Hi Dr, My heart rate is 105... is that bad?
Good evening. Well 105 isnt too alarming. But it s definitely more than the normal.I hope you are not anxious about anything. Ask someone to check your pulse rate in ur sleep once. If it is still running high, you need to check it up.Kindly look into your haemoglobin, Thyroid levels, ECG and if needed a 2D Echo of heart( but alll that at later stage). Hope this information was helpful
 
Should someone see a doctor if pulse is 80 but pounding in neck and chest. That has family history of heart problems?
Dear Lady, Thanks for your query. I can fully appreciate your concerns. Normally, heart beat is not felt/noticed. When heart beats are continuously noticed as pounding, there is a possibility of some defect in one or more heart valves. I will therefore strongly recommend that you get ECG & 2-D echo of the heart done and consult a cardiologist. Have a nice day. Regards, Dr. (Col) R Karanwal
