I have a heart rate of 78 when I wake

I have a heart rate of 78 when I wake up even though I'm in a good fitness level - I workout in high intensity 4 times a week and often wait on tables. I also know I'm in better shape than my friends (climbing mountains is way easier for me). Should I be worried? I was diagnosed with anxiety but it's pretty much in check now, and it happens in calm mornings too. Thank you

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?

Had thoracic surgery 5 weeks ago...when I wake up my blood pressure is 127/78 around that. My heart rate is 75 bpm. Howevery I went grociery shopping, and out to dinner, when I got home my heart rate was 109 and blood pressure was 138/89. After settling down and resting, things went back to normal. Is this normal for me to have such fluxuation in blood pressure and heart rate?

Hi, I keep waking up to a rapid heart rate. Or at least I feel like this. My pulse is rarely over 100 when I wake up, but I feel as if it s 200. Been suffering from sinus tachycardia for 2 years, took Betablockers, currently on Clonazepam and Seroksat. I v visited many doctors, the only thing they came up with was that the tachy s were provoked by my nerv system. Is waking up like this dangerous, should I go see a doctor?
