Brief Answer:
I would explain as follows:

Detailed Answer:
Hello!

Welcome and thank you for asking on HCM!

I understand your concern and would explain that your symptoms could be related to chronic degeneration of the cervical vertebral column or a wrong position during sleeping.

For this reason, I would recommend trying to correct your posture and use an orthopedic pillow. Performing some physical exercise that help reinforce your back muscles would also help.

A cervical spine X ray study is necessary to investigate for chronic degeneration of the cervical spine.

Anyway, you should know that your symptoms are not indicative of any serious medical disorder.

Regarding your blood pressure values, I would recommend continue taking Hydrochlorothiazide, in order to maintain your blood pressure values below 140 mm Hg.

Regarding your heart rate values, I would explain that they are within the normal ranges and you have nothing to worry about.

Hope you will find this answer helpful!

Kind regards,

Dr. Iliri

My da daughter is 11with Autism. Her heart rate seems to be very fast all yhe time. Is this normal? She also has ADHA and takes Focilan 20mg. Could that also be the reason her heart seems to beat so fast? She has been on the med for 4years with little to no side effect. Just an increase and decrease in her eatting habits.

Hey, I was diagnosed with an eating disorder and the effects were secondary amenorrhea and bradycardia. My resting rate rate then was 45 and they said it could be reversed but I was wondering if it was possible to reverse it in a week? I ve been following their orders of eating more for about 5 days now and my resting heart rate is between 70-80 every time I check it.

My resting heart rate is unusually fast and even if i just walk up the stairs my heart is racing like ive just ran a mile. When i exercise i can feel my heartbeat in my chin and other strange places aswell as having red, blotchy skin all over my body, mostly my face and arms. Also, after exercise, if i open my mouth i can hear my heartbeat, its like a ticking noise. My mouth goes very very dry too. Finally ive noticed that if i lie down and place something across my chest for example a book or ipad, i can see my ipad wobble alot from my heartbeat, is any of this normal??
