Your heart rate is not abnormal. Anywhere between 60-100 is considered normal range. Everyone will experience some variation in their heartbeat. Sinus tachycardia is when the heartbeat is still regular and in the normal 'sinus' rhythm, but faster than is usual (more than 100 beats per minute.) This is a normal response in some situations, Your heart rate will naturally increase upon exertion or when you are stressed or emotional. It can also happen if you have an overactive thyroid gland or anaemia- if you are concerned ask your GP to do blood work.

Hello, I am taking Flecainide 50 mg twice daily for a month. I was having dizziness for a few months. After ruling many things out, we found that I am having too many heart beats. The doctor thought once we slowed the beats down, I would not be dizzy. I have still had dizziness. It felt like it was leveling out a bit, but now it is bothering me again. They told me to make another appointment which is over a month away. I can t believe the doctor said not to take it if it bothers me. I would be afraid to stop taking it since it has slowed the rapid beats down. Do you think it might help if I cut them in half taking 25 mg. twice daily? I also take klonopin 0.5 mg. daily and hydroxyzine which I only started when I was dizzy months ago. I am tired of being dizzy. For 20 years the klonopin has kept me in check.

My brother is having a heart cath tomorrow. Apparently he has had a heart attack sometime in the last ten years.

His heart rate has become uncontrollable with meds and sontinues to beat at 131. He said the doctor told him some rate (he couldn't remember) was at 25 and should be higher. Can you perhaps clarify what this may mean?

I have been prescribed isoptin 240 ml per day as my blood pressure has been up to 165 over 93. Also I have been getting palpitation which at times last up to a couple of hours. Had a heart monitor put on . showed my heart rate going up to 114. resting at about 66. Which I know is good. the results of the monitor showed over 2000 ectopic episodes. Is this anything to worry about.
