Hi,
A heart rate of 64 beats per minute is entirely normal for your age. There are many causes of difficulty in breathing. If it persists then I suggest you go to the ED.

If you are resting (not exerting yourself) that pulse rate is good. Usually when a problem is serious, the heart rate increases. In which case, you need to be seen by a doctor right away. If you can't catch your breath, call 911. Otherwise, I suggest you call your local hospital and ask to speak to an advise nurse. Just tell her about your breathing problem and she will tell you if she thinks you need to be seen by a doctor tonight. Or call an emergency room and ask to speak to an RN (nurse) and talk to her. Otherwise, make an appointment with your doctor.

im 29 years old and for months now ive been having palpatations, at first they werent bothering me but now they are starting to really bang, i also noticed that when this happens the beat at e apex of the heart stops for a few seconds. I exercise 5 times a week 2 hour sessions. i wear a heart monitor when training and never push more than 85% of my max heart rate. sometimes when having these palpatations they come one after another and can be painful sometimes. my pulse is okay between 60-90 taken at the wrist how ever when i put the heart monitor on it always seems to go between 80-111 without exercise. been to the doctor and he said it was okay recent bloods were okay. Have you any ideas?? i dont drink caffine.

Concerta causes my heart rate to increase to 100-120bpm resting, but it helps me out a lot, is there another medication that has similar pros, but won t increase my heart rate? Don t laugh, but I also have sexual issues on it (e.g. very difficult to stay hard). Any help would be appreciated

my 24 year old son has had recurrent chest pain. He has visited the er on at least 2 occasions for this. THe first visit he had a heart rate in the 30 s with normal b/p readings. He had to wear a heart monitor for 24 hours, apparently with no abnormalities. He has passed out at work before. He generally doesn t feel well. He does take Lithum and is monitored for levels as he has had a critical high level approx. 1 year ago. His blood was drawn last night in the ER and they stated it was abnormal and was being sent away. He is 6 3 , 165lbs and a smoker. Any thoughts would be appreciate. We live in an extremely rural area. Eastern Maine Medical Center in Bangor is 95 miles away. Any thoughts would be appreciated. Janet
