I usually have a resting heart rate of about 73

I usually have a resting heart rate of about 73 but have a cold starting and my tonsils are very sore and swollen and I often get tonsilitis.
Tonight my heart rate is between 95-100.
I do also suffer from bad anxiety! Is my heart rate high because I'm not well or is it more likely just my anxiety playing up?

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?

Hi! I am a 26 year old Female and I have a resting heart rate of 115 to 125 at all times. I had severe preeclampsia 2 years ago with my son and my blood pressure has never came down. Its usually around 140/90 s. I don t have insurance so I didn t know if this is something I should be worried about since I am not able to just go to the dr at any time?

Hi, I m 20 years old and I am very active, I am 5 9 tall and only weigh 130lbs. I am currently doing the Insanity workout program and I can get my heart rate extremely high and I am definitely more fit than my friends who have a resting heart rate between 50 and 60 (mine is usually between 80-100). I have read a lot about how a resting heart rate like this is unhealthy, and I am just checking to see if this is that big of an issue or if it s fairly normal for a very active person to have this.
