I have fast heart beat of 100/min, Any suggestions please ?

My hear beat so fast and sometimes I have pain in my heart of left arm (I have this for at least 3 years). I already went to the doctor, did tests and he said the pain is just the muscle, since my heart seams healthy. Have you has similar problem? I don't want to take medicine, I already eat very healthy and exercise 3 times a week (and I'm in my 20s). Any suggestions?

The resting heart rate in adults is 60-90 beats per minute is considered normal and above 100Bpm is considered tacchycardia.so whenever you record your heart rate,you should be relaxed.
Just tocheck your heart rate during exercise you need to:

1. Stop gradually.
2. Take your pulse for 15 seconds.
3. Multiply this number by 4 to calculate your beats per minute.

If you're just starting out on an exercise program, keep your heart rate at the lower end of your target heart rate zone and gradually work up to a higher intensity level.

*For your chest pain,its important to rule out certain symptoms like- radiation of pain, heart burn or acidity/pain while resting or activity and also consult with some cardiologist for certain tests like ECG And 6 minute walk test..to make some diagnosis.

I suffer from anxiety and panic and my heart rate can get very high (I am 22) I understand how you feel I have had heart rates 140-170 for 2-4 hours at a time and its very scary and uncomfortable. if you are against medication , I would recommend speaking to your doctor again (it cant hurt to make sure your heart is fine) And then I would recommend learning Deep Breathing and Progressive muscle relaxation or Maybe Mediation. These are things you can do yourself to calm and relax your mind and your body http://www.authentic-breathing.com/deep_breathing.htm http://stress.about.com/od/generaltechniques/ht/howtopmr.htm Try those links see if they help. And Keep in contact with your doctor. And may I ask if you know how high it has gotten and lasted? (before returning to a normal resting rate) and above all I wish you the best of health

Hi. I took a 15 mg adderall (not prescribed) to study at around 10 am. At around 7-8pm, I smoked cannibas (also not prescribed). A few moments later I began to feel very dizzy, and my heart beat was extremely fast. I then felt pressure and dizziness, but not an excruciating pain to my chest. After that my body was becoming cold, starting with my hands and eventually shivering. I took a hot shower and tried to keep warm and just went to sleep after it calmed down a bit. Today my heartbeat seems "normal" but i still feel lightheaded somewhat and I'm concerned. Did I have a heart attack?

For the past few days I have had heart palpatations, sore arm, chest pain, and pains in my legs alongside numbness in my arm. Is this just an anxiety attack? I had a hemotoma in my leg and was petrified they were linked, but each time I showed the doctors they didn't seem to think this was a possibility. I just need reassurance that it is only anxiety.
