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?

Hi,I have had both atrial Fib & atrial flutter for approx 3 years.I have undergone cardioversion which lasted 2 weeks,then cardiac ablation which lasted 1 week.am awiting follow up in approx 5 weeks.Although symptoms are not as severe am still having palpitations,breathlessness,chest pain etc on average twice a week.I take warfarin and flecainide.
