This isn't so abnormal and there could be many causes for why it isn't lower. Tachycardia is a rate >100. Obesity, poor cardiopulmonary condition (couch potato), smoking, hypertension, anxiety, cardiac conditions,etc. can cause rapid heart rate. Because it sounds as if it worries you, speak to your doctor to rule out an organic cause for it. You may be glad you did.

My mother is 72 years old and had a cardiac ablation performed around February 21 for atrial fibrillation. It became complicated with a nick in her artery and she was hospitalized for 5 days afterward. Since then she has had 5 episodes of a rapid heart rate and has been hospitalized for this 4 additional times, and is currently in the hospital. The doctors want to do another cardiac ablation but I am worried as the doctor told her the reason she was having so many issues now is because the heart is irritated and needs to heal and could take an additional 8 weeks to heal. Wouldn t another procedure irritate it more?
My rest heart rate is typically around 100 and my blood pressure is typically very good. I am now taking Bisoprol 5mg for atrial tachycardia. My last read had my rest heart rate at 94 but my blood pressure has dropped to 101/57. Should I be concerned?

I am a 23 year old female, studying medicine. For past 8 months, i have been having some episodes of heart 'dysfunctions' that now have turned constant. I need help in knowing what is the condition. It started last may when one day i started feeling so weak that i just could not get up and was having a splitting headache, when i measured my BP was 90/55mmHg ( before it was always 120/80mmHg). I was having palpitations, bradycardia at times, tachycardia at times, extreme weakness, sweating ( especially on scalp) after sleeping after headache. I was also having light sleep. Slowly, these episodes became constant. Now I am feeling weak all times, light headed if sitting or standing for long, headache (thumping with constant heaviness), inability to sleep, tightness in chest, chest pain sometimes, tachycardia at any normal activity (walking, doing some tidy up), BP is still low. I also get dry cough on breathing sometimes. So i got a holter done for 24 hours, got following: - sinus tachycardia( 110- 120) almost all day with some normal rate in between, my heart rate dropped to 50 in middle of night ( reason causing me to wake up from sleep and not to sleep again) and it remained like that for 3 hours - average pulse -81 - my heart rate jumped to 179 per min when i climbed stairs ( 9 floors, easily climbed by others), breathing became laboured, headache with blacking out sensations ( i did not faint though) - I have some abnormalities in lead I, II and III ( looks like left axis deviation as lead I is showing highest peaks and is moving away from III ) even the avL and avF looks weird, QTc>450ms is 47%, no ST deviation, no T wave abnormalities I also have tachypnea (26-28 per min) and accentuation of Pulmonary part of second heart sound. I also have slight edema on my feet ( bluish tinge) I also did a blood work up, I do not have thyroid problems or anemia I need some advice on what i might be having, so as to proceed further on treatment.
