It may indicate underlying cardiovasular disorder/Hypertension/hypotension. it would be difficult even for your doctor to diagnose on only these symptoms.

I am a 24 and a half year old white female with 3 children ages 4 and under. My heart rate is normally on the higher side when I am pregnant and that s pretty much the only time I ever check it. But I ve been checking it a lot the past few days and every time it s been between 101-109bpm. Even after just waking up after sleeping. Sometimes I do feel like my heart is racing. Is this something I should get checked out by a doctor?

Hi, I have a question about recovery heart rate. I find this a bit confusing. I am a 33 year old male who only does weighttraining, so no cardio . I m actually affraid to do cardio. My question is this. When I get my heartrate up and make it stay there for a short period of time (2-5minutes), then my recovery heart rate is great. I get my heartrate up to 150or160, and after one minute it s around 120 to drop below 100 after two minutes. BUT, when I do cardio for 30 minutes (which I almost never do), and I measure my heartrate afterwards, it s also 150, but it doesn t go down the first minute. So my recovery heart rate is terrible after long sessions. It starts slowing down after a couple of minutes, but this goes very slow. It returns back to normal after about an hour. With normal I mean around ten beats higher than my resting pulse, which is 50-55. Is this because there s something wrong with my heart, or is it because my body is trained for short outbursts and not endurance. Thx in advance p.s. I ve had several ekg s, thorax photo s, blood tests. All came back normal.

Hello, my wife was recently diagnosed with a glomus vagale, paraganglioma in the vagus nerve on the right side of her neck. She had experienced a momentary blindness while driving and was being checked out for a possible minor stroke, and the MRA showed that her arterial passages in the neck and head were clear, but that the carotid artery was being displaced by the tumor which had previously been undetected. She also had elevated blood pressure when she went in for the checkup, and her blood pressure has continued to increase since that time a couple of months ago. We have spoken to several people (PhDs) who are medical researchers who have indicated that this might possibly be caused by the displacement of the baroreceptors in her carotid sinus. However, her medical doctors do not believe that this a feasible cause. Any suggestions are possible known similar cases?
