Sudden heart rate elevation

Edited , 3 users are following.


I am 36 years old male with normal body weight and without any known condition. Some years ago I found out that I am a carrier of a rare genetic mutation which can lead to cardiomyopathy. We were surprised since no one has ever had heart issues or dies suddenly in our family. So far I am disease free. I have noticed that the smallest thing I do my heart rate goes crazy high immediately. For example if I go our running my heart rate can climb to over 190 bpm. I get tired and out of breath very fast, but no chest pain. If I stop it does come down within seconds max 1 min. Do you find such high rate as normal? I have a fitbit which shows that throughout 24 hr my resting heart rate is around 67. I am afraid to do the smallest activity because as I said the heart rate goes immediately high. Any recommendations? Thank you

    DEar alme,

    I dont know if this will help you,but i have been diagnosed with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy recently.

    Blood pressure sometimes elevated(see post). Suddenly became breathless,when short walking etc.

    If yours is similar,check with doctor as they may recommend that all your immediate

    family are checked.My family have been,and are ok.

    Which means i am 500,00 to 1 Mr lucky!?

    I am on beta blockers and awaiting heart procedure.

    Hope yours is not so severe and maybe easily sorted.

    regards, Richard
