Dear Albert, First of all accept my heartiest congratulations that you have an excellent heart which is resistant to average exercise, that's you can even do better and harder exercise without straining your, it's a God gift. Mine was even less that's is between 70 to 80 beats /minute, and on doing a 100 meters dash, my heart rate would barely touch. EVENTUALLY I ENDED AS A SPLINTER. I was selected directly as a Doctor Captain in armed forces. So you are one of the best of the best. Let me know if you want to join our Marine Corps. Lovingly, Dr.Q.

My children just approached me with a question about their heart rate. They are too old to be playing a trick on me. Their resting heart rates are too high. My wife is on beta blockers for a thyroid disease so I am constantly checking her heart. My son is 112 and my daughter is 132. Not a panic attack. Blood pressure is not the issue either. What could possibly be the issue without it being a heart condition?

im 29 years old and for months now ive been having palpatations, at first they werent bothering me but now they are starting to really bang, i also noticed that when this happens the beat at e apex of the heart stops for a few seconds. I exercise 5 times a week 2 hour sessions. i wear a heart monitor when training and never push more than 85% of my max heart rate. sometimes when having these palpatations they come one after another and can be painful sometimes. my pulse is okay between 60-90 taken at the wrist how ever when i put the heart monitor on it always seems to go between 80-111 without exercise. been to the doctor and he said it was okay recent bloods were okay. Have you any ideas?? i dont drink caffine.

Concerta causes my heart rate to increase to 100-120bpm resting, but it helps me out a lot, is there another medication that has similar pros, but won t increase my heart rate? Don t laugh, but I also have sexual issues on it (e.g. very difficult to stay hard). Any help would be appreciated

my 24 year old son has had recurrent chest pain. He has visited the er on at least 2 occasions for this. THe first visit he had a heart rate in the 30 s with normal b/p readings. He had to wear a heart monitor for 24 hours, apparently with no abnormalities. He has passed out at work before. He generally doesn t feel well. He does take Lithum and is monitored for levels as he has had a critical high level approx. 1 year ago. His blood was drawn last night in the ER and they stated it was abnormal and was being sent away. He is 6 3 , 165lbs and a smoker. Any thoughts would be appreciate. We live in an extremely rural area. Eastern Maine Medical Center in Bangor is 95 miles away. Any thoughts would be appreciated. Janet
