Suggest treatment for high pulse rate

I have been having ringing in my ears for about a month now. I tried ear drops to remove possible wax build-up with no help. Today I tried to donate blood but I wasn't allowed due to a high pulse rate. My blood pressure was normal. I have never been told I had a high pulse rate. I am a 58 yr old male in pretty good health

Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

Tinnitus or ringing in the ear is not related to heart rate .you will need to see an ENT surgeon to get a cure for tinnitus. Please mention your heart rate and BP to know exactly what it is like.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Cardiologist Dr. Ilir Sharka's  Response
Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

I would explain that a high pulse rate could be related to different possible disorders: chronic anemia, thyroid gland dysfunction, an electrolyte imbalance, etc.

Coming to this point, I would recommend consulting with your attending physician for a physical exam and some tests:
- complete blood count for anemia
- thyroid hormone levels for thyroid gland dysfunction
- blood electrolytes for possible imbalances.

Hope to have been helpful!

Wishing good health.

My husband currently has shingles (1 week into it) and is 36 years old at a weight of 195. We were told to monitor his BP for the next 3 weeks to determine any meds. For the past week his BP has been in the range of 160-196 over 90-109. This morning s reading (at a rested state) was 196 over 109 with a pulse rate of 57. Should we do anything? His family has a history of heart issues and high BP.

Our 30 year old son is 6 ft. 5, overweight 320. Smokes cigarettes , probably at least a pack. He has been unemployed for 2 years, has mental health issues & gives plasma for money. Recently he has been turned down because of high blood pressure (160/90 a few times then 130/90) and for the last month a pulse rate of at least 103 & more often 108. He is on state aid healthcare & has an appointment for December 15 with a doctor. He works out at the gym intermittently, starting back a few weeks ago. Does the elliptical machine & then dances & stretches. He has at least two cavities & is in need of deep cleaning, but most not covers by his healthcare & he is resistant to our advice to go to a dental school & we will help pay. My most immediate concern is his pulse rate & blood pressure. I read somewhere that he should go to emergency that it is dangerous. Could you let me know your thoughts.

I ve been hypertensive for the last 10 years (at least as far as I know) I recently have been running pretty high (179/102 was the highest) and haven t seen my bp go lower than 154/93 in over a month. Oddly my rested pulse rate varies from 53-61. I m 5 11 189lbs 53 years old. I get a moderate amount of exercise, and a very physically active job as a flight attendant. The only really unhealthy habit is I rarely sleep more than 6 hours a night, and because I fly nights quite a bit break morning pretty often.

I had to fast just before giving blood . I gave blood and after doing so I felt fine until about 10 mins later. I suddenly started to sweat profusely and my stomach hurt. My ears started to clog and I felt really dizzy. I barely made it home. We I got home I had to use the bathroom. My stomach still hurts but the sweating has subsided and some of the dizziness . There is also some slight pain in my chest but it almost feels like heartburn . Any ideas of what could have happened?

I Have a daughter (14) who has been diagnosed with hemochromotosis and my daughter informed me that the local doctors where she lives are not willing to do regular blood tests to monitor her levels. They have told my exwife that they will do nothing more until the child is the legal age of 18. I find this disturbing as the child has been diagnosed, and there should be some course of ongoing testing, and blood donations at the very least in my opinion. Please advise as to what you think is the proper action in this case. Thank you.

My 16 year old daughter fainted yesterday at school about 30 minutes after taking Bayer asprin. Today, before giving blood at her school blood drive, a nurse checked her blood pressure and it was 90/62 (they let her give blood anyway). After giving blood, she felt very weak and could hardly stand up. Could her fainting be from the asprin or could it be a side effect of her low blood pressure?

Hi there, I had a CBC done at the emergency room about six months ago for stomach pain which they concluded was a possible ulcer or IBS . Since then the pain has went away for the most part. I had to request my medical records for insurance...
