i know the top # is normal but the lower number worried me, some times when i run too hard, my heart beats really hard (for a long time) and i can t move... it hurts too.... Can some one tell me if it s normal or not?
The bottom number is too low. You should have this checked out by a physician ASAP. People tend to think that the bottom number is not as important as the top but it is. It indicates a function of the heart that is different from the function that the top number measures. The low number ( plus your symptoms) indicate that the functioning of your heart is compromised in some way. Since the top number is good, it may simply be that you need to take some medication after all tests are run. In any event, don't engage in any guesswork. Have it seen to immediately ( as in tomorrow or the day after for the very latest) and don't take any chances at all with your health. It is better to be safe than sorry.

My husband's heart is beating loudly and seems to be beating irregularly. I took his blood pressure and it was normal. His heart rate was 102bpm. He also has an urge to cough periodically. He's had these episodes happen before and the cough has helped at times. Do we need to be concerned? His father died from heart disease and started having an irregular heart beat when he was 35.
