Is my resting heart beat of 148 beats per minute normal, because I know it s not? I was diagnosed with generalized anxiety disorder over 10 years ago and I ve been taking 20 milligrams of lexapro and three 1mg klonipin a day for the last couple of years, but recently I moved to Ohio on my own and stress and everything else is just killing me and I have panic attacks. This isn t even one of them and I m resting at 148 bpm according to my phone. I need to be re-diagnosed.

Should I be worried if im a 23yr old woman whos resting heart rate is 140 bpm? I am a 23 year old female and I am slightly over weight. Sometimes I can feel my heart just beating out of control. It usually goes away within an hour this has been going on for about 3 hours now so I got nervous and calculated my bpm and it is at 140 bpm. Is that normal or should I be worried?

My husband's heart is beating loudly and seems to be beating irregularly. I took his blood pressure and it was normal. His heart rate was 102bpm. He also has an urge to cough periodically. He's had these episodes happen before and the cough has helped at times. Do we need to be concerned? His father died from heart disease and started having an irregular heart beat when he was 35.
