Detailed Answer:
Hi and thank you for asking to HCM!

You have nothing to worry about as long as basal ECG is normal. Your heart rate is slightly above normal range (60-100 beats per minute) and it's called tachycardia.

Tachycardia is a common finding in peoples with mitral valve prolaps, but without any clinical significance.

However I suggest running ECG holter monitoring to exclude other tachyarhythmias which may be not seen on basal ECG.

Hope this was of help!

Hello, I have a resting heart rate of 112- when I excercise it literally only takes my heart rate to speed of to 160 or higher in minutes. I have been eating lots of green lately, and have been trying to work out- but get light headed very easy. I am a 29 year old female.

My brother is having a heart cath tomorrow. Apparently he has had a heart attack sometime in the last ten years.

His heart rate has become uncontrollable with meds and sontinues to beat at 131. He said the doctor told him some rate (he couldn't remember) was at 25 and should be higher. Can you perhaps clarify what this may mean?

I have been prescribed isoptin 240 ml per day as my blood pressure has been up to 165 over 93. Also I have been getting palpitation which at times last up to a couple of hours. Had a heart monitor put on . showed my heart rate going up to 114. resting at about 66. Which I know is good. the results of the monitor showed over 2000 ectopic episodes. Is this anything to worry about.
