Is Chronic Elevated Heart Rate Dangerous?

I just turned 70 and on oxygen. Even when napping my heart rate rarely gets below 90. Sitting here it is 95 and gets up to 122 - 124 when sweepin, etc. Is this dangerous? I weigh 135 at 5"4 which is the most I have ever weighed. I take Advair and Spriva. My lung collasped on 1-21-2011.

hi
Yes chronic elevated heart rate is problematic.
one of the reasons is you are on inhaler advair , it has salmeterol which can increase heart so discuss with your physician if possible to decrease that content from inhaler.
Do u snore, do u have interrupted sleep, day time sleepiness. If yes you probably have OSA and needs treatment for it.
Also get oxygen level checked once , is it low if yes you will need home oxygen for that.
I find this answer helpful
