Anxiety always messes with my heart rate

Posted , 5 users are following.

When I'm anxious my heart rate is always between 99-115bpm should I be worried? It eventually lowers to around 79-85bpm but is it bad when it goes up that much?(I'm 26 by the way)

    Anxiety does that. Thats where the adrenaline goes first to protect you. Its really similiar to a cardio workout. I Don't think you need to wprry about it. Try walking a lot it helps. And if you arent on any meds theres something  called l theanine it slows this down as well.

    Hi, pablo:  I have had anxiety and depression problems all my life.  My heartrate always goes up every morning after breakfast, no matter what.  It generally stays around 80, but when I'm anxious for the day, it hovers around 100-110.  It's scary, but the doctor gave me Metapropalol for mine and it helps some, but after you see a doctor and they tell you everything is ok, try to ignore it....It should go away.  It is a natural reaction to anxiety......xxxoo

    You should be fine with that heart rate just do some deep breathing I have a problem which sends my heart rate 230+ and doctors are only concerned by the stress it causes me because it's frightening for me. Deep breathing exercises are great smile
