Hi. I have long short story about my fast heart rate. My heart rate when im sitting calm or standing is around 100-120. Small movement increase a lot, but when im laying most of time its normal like 60-80. When im walking its going up to 160 and in gym working out with small and not heavy things is 180-190. I was in many doctors, had heart checks and blood pressure,lungs, stomach(they found diaphragmatic hernia, but said it shouldnt increase my heart rate). I checked many things and everything came out perfect,except stomach. When I was checking my heart rate with echo at the doctor, it was 120 heart rate and he said he dont understand why. He prescribed me medicine what lowers heart beat without touching blood pressure. I didnt started it, I dont want without knowing reason of fast heart rate. I dont have stress, I also tried some xanax and etc, but it doesnt helps. I feel most of time like something pressing my heart, like not enough place for it in my chest. I also wasnt moving so much in past 3 months, im sitting mostly from morning to evening on PC working, not going so much, except to shop buy food. Im not moving a lot.

My question is: Is it possible that my heart beat is fast with small movement because I wasnt moving long time? Is i dangerous if I go workout at gym and get heart rate 180-190 just by doing easy things? Im afraid to workout when heart rate is really fast and its kind of scary, but maybe it might help after 1-2 weeks and it will lower down or not really?

    Look up tachycardia and superventriculer tachycardia. Doesn't mean your going to die. I have a fast heart rate and need beta blockers to slow it down. I would take the meds.

      What kind of doctor? If not a cardiologist I would recommend a cardiologist.

      Yes it was cardiologist. He offered me to try this kind of beta blockers, but he didnt said I have something. He was like maybe try this medicine.. Because if it was something, I guess he would tell. And its strange that my heart some days are normal, some are not. Sometimes when im lying in bed and standing up(not even fast) i get like 170 heart rate. After eating makes also faster.

      Sounds like it might be tachycardia then. It took a second opinion on my heart to get diagnosed right. Try the beta blocker and see how it goes. Which one is it?

      Its Corlentor 5MG. Im afraid also, because they said if I start to take, I cant stop whenever I want. I need to take everyday, otherwise my heart can go wrong way.

    I think you should get second opinion as that is fast . They gave you beta blockers for heart rate ? These will slow it but don’t always work . Look up York Cardiology on Google and see some of their videos on this , the doctor is very helpful and goes into different types of heart beats . But I would try and investigate further , there is a connection between heart and stomach via the vagus nerve . He talks about this too . Good luck

    I would look up PSVT and SVT like some of the posters above mentioned.  Once you start there, you'll see that there are many reasons why your heart rate could be going up like this especially if all your tests have passed bc these aren't captured on these heart tests.  I'm surprised your cardiologist didn't mention them - I'm overall healthy female, 41 - been athletic my whole life (not overly - I'm not a marathon runner or anything but fitness has been a big part of my life especially in the last 15 years) - and I had to go to ER twice now due to sudden increased heart rate.  By the time I've gotten to the hospital it goes down substantially and the ER DR thought it was anxiety.  I knew it wasn't anxiety - I deal with stress as we all do but I've never had anxiety in my life and my blood pressure has always been normal (never too high or too low).  Made an appt with a cardiologist and right off the bat he suspects it's PVST.  I have my ECHO tomorrow morning and also get the halter monitor to wear for not sure how long yet.  My advice would be to get a second opinion. Since it doesn't sound like you're too active right now, I would start slow and work your way up to moderate exercise.  Start with walking once a day and take it easy.  My husband's child hood friend who was overweight started working out hardcore and went into cardiac arrest at the gym when he was only 38 - he survived it - but was very lucky.  He was dead when the ambulance came but they jump started him back to life!

      Well initially I thought I’d have to stop being so active bc my first episode was after a hard workout. My heart rate was just “stuck” at 180bpm. That coupled with breathing heavily bc of an intense cardio session was pretty scary. The ER doctor told me not to work out until I saw a cardiologist which was a few days later and once I did see the cardiologist he said never stop exercising - it actually helps. You just need to work your way up. I remember when I first started cycling it was really hard even though I was a runner - I just couldn’t keep up with the people in my class when I would cycle but after a few months I worked my way up and have been hooked for a while. There was a time in my life when I was in my 20’s that I didn’t work out regularly and I would be out of breath just going up the stairs in my house! Your heart is a muscle and you need to get in strong Incase anything ever does happen - that’s what my doc says anyway smile you are still very young and at a good age to incorporate fitness - have fun with it!
