Always have high heart rate

THEDert Community Member September 17, 2008
  • Done the EKG, Stress Test, Echo and every heart test, but still 85% of the time my heart rate is 90-110. I cut caffiene out of my diet and have started running and working out 4 days a week for the past 5 months, but still will get that high heart rate. Anyone else deal with this?

      I was diagnosed with anxiety when I was about to go into high school. Ever since then I still have a high heart rate. Sometimes it will be in the normal range of 60-100.

The doctor said its only a bad thing when your heart has to beat that fast for a long period of time.

     When I was much younger I had the echo, the monitor you had to wear for a week, sleep depervation test, ect...and nothing was found. I take my doctors word for what she says...its normal.

     I am not an expert by any means, but I thought it may help. But you should ask your doctor if its okay for you. They know your case much better than anyone else on here.

Try drinking more water. If that doesn't work, get on a better anxiety med (Klonapin). If you als get high blood Pressure, Get on a beta blocker (Metaprolol).

      In more conservative states, you may have a hard time getting klonipin because it's a controled substance. But most states don't make it a problem for it's doctrs to prescribe it.
