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?

I am a 19 year old female in decent shape. I usually work out 2-3 times a week. My resting heart rate is usually between 90-96. Is this too high? Could it have bad effects on my heart long term?

Hey, I was diagnosed with an eating disorder and the effects were secondary amenorrhea and bradycardia. My resting rate rate then was 45 and they said it could be reversed but I was wondering if it was possible to reverse it in a week? I ve been following their orders of eating more for about 5 days now and my resting heart rate is between 70-80 every time I check it.

My resting heart rate is unusually fast and even if i just walk up the stairs my heart is racing like ive just ran a mile. When i exercise i can feel my heartbeat in my chin and other strange places aswell as having red, blotchy skin all over my body, mostly my face and arms. Also, after exercise, if i open my mouth i can hear my heartbeat, its like a ticking noise. My mouth goes very very dry too. Finally ive noticed that if i lie down and place something across my chest for example a book or ipad, i can see my ipad wobble alot from my heartbeat, is any of this normal??

My rest heart rate is typically around 100 and my blood pressure is typically very good. I am now taking Bisoprol 5mg for atrial tachycardia. My last read had my rest heart rate at 94 but my blood pressure has dropped to 101/57. Should I be concerned?

I am a 23 year old female, studying medicine. For past 8 months, i have been having some episodes of heart 'dysfunctions' that now have turned constant. I need help in knowing what is the condition.
It started last may when one day i started feeling so weak that i just could not get up and was having a splitting headache, when i measured my BP was 90/55mmHg ( before it was always 120/80mmHg). I was having palpitations, bradycardia at times, tachycardia at times, extreme weakness, sweating ( especially on scalp) after sleeping after headache. I was also having light sleep.
Slowly, these episodes became constant. Now I am feeling weak all times, light headed if sitting or standing for long, headache (thumping with constant heaviness), inability to sleep, tightness in chest, chest pain sometimes, tachycardia at any normal activity (walking, doing some tidy up), BP is still low. I also get dry cough on breathing sometimes.
So i got a holter done for 24 hours, got following:
- sinus tachycardia( 110- 120) almost all day with some normal rate in between, my heart rate dropped to 50 in middle of night ( reason causing me to wake up from sleep and not to sleep again) and it remained like that for 3 hours
- average pulse -81
- my heart rate jumped to 179 per min when i climbed stairs ( 9 floors, easily climbed by others), breathing became laboured, headache with blacking out sensations ( i did not faint though)
- I have some abnormalities in lead I, II and III ( looks like left axis deviation as lead I is showing highest peaks and is moving away from III ) even the avL and avF looks weird, QTc>450ms is 47%, no ST deviation, no T wave abnormalities
I also have tachypnea (26-28 per min) and accentuation of Pulmonary part of second heart sound. I also have slight edema on my feet ( bluish tinge)
I also did a blood work up, I do not have thyroid problems or anemia
I need some advice on what i might be having, so as to proceed further on treatment.
