60-100 techically, but 60-80 is about the best. There is no set rate for a heart attack as the rate can change to either slower (bradycardia), faster (tachycardia) than normal, or be normal. Usually you'll find it to be a bit fast, caused by a release of adrenalin from being scared,

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?

I am 59 and i working cutting trees for a campground for the summer. We are at 6000 ft. in the mountains. My heat rate at rest is 50 to 80. When i start work my rate is around 110 doing light work cutting. When i start picking up the log. the logs are 4ft long and very in weight 40 to 80 pounds. Most of the time i am going up and down hills. My rate will go up to 145 and sometimes as high as 169. but as soon as i put the log down my rate drops with in 3 to 5 mins to 110 again. Is this dangers to me. By the way my blood pressure is around 130 /80 my weight is 225.

I had a baby 18 months ago and previous to that suffered from Hyperthyroid due to a virus. I was suffering from significant tachycardia and excessive sweating at that time. RAI Uptake was done etc, Virus resolved rendering my thyroid now Hypoactive for the last 4 years. I am currently taking Synthroid 150mcg. I have been a runner my entire life however first trimester complications caused that to cease. I am not just getting back into it and training for a half marathon. I have noted that my heart rate even after 5 minutes of running is around 186 bpm. I went to my GP to have my TSH and T4 checked to be sure I wasn t over medicated. Everything was normal. His response to this high BPM was to add a Beta-blocker. I have leary of taking it because I have read it will greatly affect my performance while running. I also get a quivering type feeling here and there through out the day in my heart. I get extremely flush almost purple in my face when running. I m wondering if there could something significantly more wrong than the thyroid affect as my GP has mentioned. I asked for a stress test and he said I didn t need one. I am 34 years old, slightly overweight still from post-partum. no other medical conditions, no history of any previous medical conditions other than Gestational Induced Hypertension and ecclampsia which clearly has resolved and Gestational Diabetes which also resolved.
