Hi welcome to healthcare Magic

It is normal..normal heart rate is 60 to 90 beat per minute.. after exercise, walking, running, any physical activity there will be increased heart rate.. but it will come to normal by few minutes..

Hello and welcome to healthcare forum.
Heart has to pump the blood with more speed whenever there is any kind of exercise.
Climbing the stairs is also an exercise, so there groovihmi to worry.
But if you feel that this symptom has started recently and previously you had no complain for the same amount of activity then you should consult your physician.

I am 23 years old and had two ablations done ten years ago for supraventricular tachycardia. I eat healthy, I am not overweight, I do not drink or smoke, and limit my caffeine intake. Since my ablations, I have had a difficult time walking up stairs. For several months, I have walked up a couple flights of stairs everyday in hopes that I would get used to it and it would become easier, but this is not the case. My heart starts to race and I get extremely out of breath. It usually takes anywhere from 5 to 10 minutes to start feeling better again.. and this is after only 2 flights of stairs. I also have a hard time doing the cardio machines at our fitness center. My heart begins to race very early on, making me feel extremely sick. I just want to be able to work out and walk up stairs like a normal, healthy person my age. Any suggestions?

Hello, I am 40, male, non-smoker, 6ft tall and weighing 194lbs. I ve been losing weight for the past 5 months. In March I went to my cardiologist to have my heart checked. Since then I am on Lisinopril 20mg to control my bloodpressure. All the tests were fine. At the time of my doctors visit I was weighing 230lbs. So I dropped around 36 pounds in 5 months. Is that normal? Also, it doesn t stop. I keep losing weight. I changed my diet a little bit, but nothing radical though. Less soft drinks and deep fried food, other than that I have decent lunch and dinner. I don t have any pain or loss of appetite. My bowel movement is normal and stool color is light-brown to brown. Could Lisinopril be the cause of my weight loss? Also, I have anxiety and get very nervous with the slidest pain. Could anxiety also be a cause? Your thoughts and comments are more than welcome. Many thanks Michael

I am 74 y/o male who's been losing weight over the past 3 months. Total weight loss has been 3 kilos for 3 months. I have been constipated and my bowel movements have been irregular but my appetite has never changed and I still eat pretty well. I don't have any abdominal complaints. What could be causing this? I also eat fiber-rich foods but to no avail, I'm still constipated.
