A few months ago I had cardio pulmonary stress test on stationery bike and an EKG. I am 75; and after extensive blood workup, I asked her if I was in good shape for a 75 yr. old woman and she quote, You re in DAMN good shape . When I mow the lawn for 15 mins. my heart beat is extremely high and rest for 15 mins. and this routine continues until the lawn has been mown. Is this normal for my age, etc.? Am I doing the correct thing my resting until my heart beat is back to normal in between moving activities?

Hi, I am wondering about my heart rate. My resting heart rate is 107 (i am 22 and weigh 200 lb. ). Today during cardio exercise my heart rate went up to 165. What I am wondering is as I continue to do cardio exercise will it be possible for me to see my heart improving by watching my heart rate?

I often have an irregular heartbeat during the course of the day (5 to 6 times). I can feel gas moving around in my system almost everytime this occurs. I often have rapid heartbeats which are relieved by passing . I was hospitalized before because I thought tI was having a heart attack but after thorough testing (ekg, ultrasound, stress test, wearing a heart monitor at home) they found nothing. What could be a possible avenue that I can pursue to finally get rid of this or at least be able to treat it.

I'm a 21 yr old female having constant heart palpitations. I know what they are and what they feel like some are stronger than others but I feel them all the time. I don't have insurance so I haven't seen a cardiologist. I don't smoke, drink anything with caffeine, and only drink alcohol occasionally. Some doctors have said possible mitral valve prolapse. I'm just wondering what could be causing so many palpitations and also I have had them since I was 18 they are just getting much worse I also have chest pain just about every day.
