Age 78, heart rate sometimes as low as 39 when arising in the morning,no noticeable symptoms. Also while hard exercising the pulse will suddenly drop from130-140 to 70-80 with no outward symptoms during the workout. After a few moments of continuing jogging, the heart will increase to 140 and slowly increase to a rate of approx. 155. Normal perspiration and uniform decrease in heart rate during cool down. My age is 77,good body mass index, cholesterol 175 with a good ratio, EKG and Holter and stress test show no problem, Please evaluate and advise.

havn t been doing any physical activity for over a year and i ve just gotten back into running. i started with high intensity interval training (run for 30 seconds as hard as possible, then walk for a minute) right away did it for 2 nights like this: 5 min jog 4 mins of HIIT then id mix between walking and running. on the third night i did 5mins jog then 6 mins of HIIT and at the end of the HIIT i experienced pains in my heart area and had a really high heart rate also it felt weird when i took a deep breath but not a normal breath, i started walking and the pain went away, then when i started to jog again the pain came back after a while when my heart rate increased. i dont have a history of anything like this before and neither do any of my family. Am i just starting out too high for this sort of stuff and take it down a noch? btw im 17, 5 11 , and 181lbs.

Last week I experienced a loss of breath and crushing tightness in my chest when climbing a large set of stairs. I have had a chest xray and a pft done. The function test showed that I am not fullly exhaling. The Person doing the test said I should have my heart tested. I have times of tightness/pain across my clavical. almost like a pinching..and it goes up into my jaw at times. I have been attending a jazzercise class for the last 9 monthths. this past couple of weeks, I have been unable to workout with out constantly stopping and have not been able to use the wieghts because my arms feel like lead. What could be going on? I am a 49 yo female very well controlled hbp on benicar. I am 5'5 230 lbs good blood sugar, high cholesteral
