I wore an event monitor for a month, it showed some episodes of abnormally high heartrates (169 ..., and take Lipitor. It wasn t clear how they could tell if the heartrate was due to me climbing stairs etc ...
I would like to know since when are you having this.
This high pulse rate is significant if counted at rest.
Re check it in resting condition for full one minute and revert back.
If you have any further query, please ask me.
is 98 bpm a good heartrate
not it's not. A heartrate as fast as 98 can only be justified by physical activity. If you've got 98 beats per minute, without engaging into physical activity, then investigation is needed. Various conditions may cause it like anemia, thyroid disease, infections, severe dehydration, arrhythmias etc
You've got to visit your doctor for the necessary investigation.
What is an irregularly irregular heartrate
Dear Patient, irregular heartrate means that between your heart beats there is a huge difference between the pauses (long pauses, very short pauses) changing. Also the heartrate shouldn't be lower than 40/50bpm and also not higher than 90/100, depending on other medical conditions though. Best regards
