Being close to the one you love raises your heart rate. Being close to the one you hate raises your heart rate. Climbing stairs raises the heart rate. All physical activities raise the heart rate. Certain chemicals raise your heart rate e.g. atropine. Poisons raise your heart rate. Elevated PCO2 levels raise heart rates.

Im 17, 143 lbs and i play basketball i just took my Resting heart rate and it was 57 in a minute. I was in Flagstaff Arizona last week and i took my resting heart rate there and it was 85 in a minute and I live in Alaska. Im not sure if im in shape or not but my body fat percent is about 12%. i was wondering if 57 beats per minute is too low or what and if i should raise my heart rate.

I am a 28 yr old male 6 tall and wiegh 190. The thing is sometimes my restring heart rate which is always at 100. I do not excersise but raise a 2 yr boy and work on my feet all day 11 hr shifts. Sometimes my heart rate while laying down at rest can jump to 130 to 150 and onetime while standing after doing nothing strenuous it hit a 183. But it s usually not that bad. What should i do?

Hi. I m a 15 year old boy and currently I m a little scared. Ever since last night I ve had a increase in heart rate and I can also feel it and it feels strong. Kind of like after you run, but not as intense. It started last night, and it took me forever to fall asleep. I m currently trying to sleep right now and it is still keeping me awake. I ve read online that it may ne linked to amxiety but I am not sure. I d really appreciate your answer as I am scarred right now. Also some things to include is that I do not excersise often and am a little overwheight. I plan to start excersising more though as this has really brought to my attention that I really should start doing it more. Thank you!

I had a baby 18 months ago and previous to that suffered from Hyperthyroid due to a virus. I was suffering from significant tachycardia and excessive sweating at that time. RAI Uptake was done etc, Virus resolved rendering my thyroid now Hypoactive for the last 4 years. I am currently taking Synthroid 150mcg. I have been a runner my entire life however first trimester complications caused that to cease. I am not just getting back into it and training for a half marathon. I have noted that my heart rate even after 5 minutes of running is around 186 bpm. I went to my GP to have my TSH and T4 checked to be sure I wasn t over medicated. Everything was normal. His response to this high BPM was to add a Beta-blocker. I have leary of taking it because I have read it will greatly affect my performance while running. I also get a quivering type feeling here and there through out the day in my heart. I get extremely flush almost purple in my face when running. I m wondering if there could something significantly more wrong than the thyroid affect as my GP has mentioned. I asked for a stress test and he said I didn t need one. I am 34 years old, slightly overweight still from post-partum. no other medical conditions, no history of any previous medical conditions other than Gestational Induced Hypertension and ecclampsia which clearly has resolved and Gestational Diabetes which also resolved.
