How bad is my heart rate?

I'm 19 years old about 230 lb's I do work out like run about .5 to a full mile on the treadmill every day or other day usually going for my fat burning heart rate but I usually end up doing cardio, as well as weight lifting for about an hour a day or every other day. I do smoke and drink and my resting heart rate is about 90 I checked this after a smoke I dont know how immidate it effects you and my dad has heart issues as well. After reading a few other sites about heart rate etc. I began wondering if I am in need of seeking help. Thanks for your time.

You're not in crazy imminent danger seek medical attention range, here.It's slightly elevated, but that could be due to a number of factors; have you checked it several times throughout the day? However, if you're concerned about your heart at 19, and trying to stick to this healthy lifestyle, the smoking is not working in your favor. Especially since there is heart disease in your family, you should be more careful. Drinking in excess can be equally unhealthy; moderation in all things, my friend.

Hi I will try to be as informative as I can I have been on nephedipine xr 90 mg once a day for high blood pressure (which I had since the birth of my third child in 2012) I was on 60mg and then my dr. Highered dosage to 90 mg because my blood pressure was high at my appt....SInce my dosage increase I had been having on and off bad migraines and fast pounding heart rate..I mentioned this to my dr. And he suggested to take me off nephedpine totally and put me on lisinopril hydro.And my blood pressure has been normal at home sometimes even reading as low as 108/68...now I was thinking why wouldn t he just lower my dosage to reduce the side effects instead of taken me off it totally? Thank you LIsa

Hi every few weeks my resting heart rate speeds up to 112-120 beats per minute for about 20-30 minutes once that day. Is that bad. I m 16 years old. Should I get a test done or is it normal abnormal beats that aren t to worry about? And how can I calm them?

For human biology i'm doing an investigation of cardiovascular health in teenagers. We got 2 active and 2 inactive teenagers to do 10 step ups and we recorded their heart rate after. Both active teenagers had a much lower resting heart rate but had a much higher increase in their heart rate after the step ups than the inactive teens. Any explanations

I am a 30 year old female. I work out 5 times a week: cardio, strength and yoga. I recently went to the doctor and my heart rate was 92 bpm. I have been checking it periodically and it's always between 84 and 96. My mother told me that she has always had the same thing and her heart rate did not slow until she got older. Could it be genetic or should I be worried?

I'm a 26 year old man who is admittedly out of shape. For about the past 24 hours I have been feeling discomfort in my heart, about the time I had an argument with a spouse. We have since resolved the issue, but I still feel the discomfort in my heart. Using a stethoscope I have I recorded my heart rate at 78 beats per minute, but it seems to speed up and slow down inconsistently. I take no medication. I'd like o figure out what this is and how to fix it.
