My pulse is at 110 at rest. I am not overweight, 6 1 at 187 at 41 yrs old . I have no pain. Heart disease runs in my family. Just very concerned. FYI: I was sexual active today with no problems. Also, I m not breathing heavy either.
Cut out nicotine and caffeine (both can increase heart rate). Increase your exercise tolerance and drink plenty of fluids (are you dehydrated). Your Body Mass Index is about 25 which puts you in the 70% for your age. If you can lower your wt to 170 lbs then your body mass index would be less than 50% for your age and your risk of a heart attack would decrease.
Furthermore- you may just want to relax since stress will increase your heart rate (especially if you stress over how fast your heart is beating).
Finally since the averate heart rate for your age is about 80-90, you may want to see a Dr. to get an EKG and make sure you don't have an arrythmia.

I am 36, 300 lbs. and am experiencing pulse rates over 100. I had chest pain a few days ago, but my pulse rate did not go over 99. The ER took an xray of my heart, EKG, and blood work twice and it all turned out fine. Tonight my pulse rate is over 100. Is there a way to lower the rate
I have a pulse rate oscillating between 45-48. It actually moved from 54-60 and kept going down. I am also working on my sugar levels using metformin. My blood pressure is always good 110/70 almost always so. I never suspected any heart problem but a recent EKG showed my pulse rate at 48. Doctor has recommended ECG which I intend to do tomorrow . Is there no definite way to improve on my pulse rate. What is happening to me.

Hello Dr, 41 year old, non-smoker, 1-5 units of alcohol a week, active, no other health issues. Family history of heart problems (Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy ), have been checked and do not have it, although have a slight thickening of arterial knuckle which gets monitored. I m getting what feels like pulses or faint flutters from my oesophagus region to the top of my sternum region, these symptoms are infrequent during the day to sometimes non-existent, but at night the symptoms only occur when laid on my back or on my left side (they disappear when I m lying on my right side?) and feel more constant with a heart beat ie pulses at a constant rate. Occasionally have slight breathlessness since this has started 1 week ago. Now I ve had a slight upset stomach (although not constipated I ve not been regular) the last week and the symptoms do seem to be more present when I have heavy feeling in my stomach and then subside once I pass wind. Is the pulses/flutter linked to this and could be a blockage and wind not escaping? Or something else?
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.
Recently I have been experiencing a "racing heart" ulse rate upwards to 111, and general tiredness. Is this something to be concerned about since heart disease runs in my family, including a sibling that died from a heat attack at age 57. My age is 56
