If My Heart Rate Is Between 120-146 Resting And 190-210 Excersising Is There Something Wrong?

I have also been experiencing headaches, occassionally my left arm starts tingling, and my neck hurts while excersising. Any help would be greatly appreciated, I just want to know if I should see a doctor about this.

Answer

FruitLoop21,

Thanks for your question. Normal heart at rest should be 60 - 100 beats per minute. Target heart rate during exercise depend on your age and weight. Both your resting and exercised heart rates are too high.

Your other symptoms are non-specific and any possible diagnosis at this point would just be a guess.

You should make an appointment with your physician as soon as possible for an evaluation. He will ask several questions, perform a physical examination as well as a cardiogram. He may also request blood work or other diagnostic tests. In the mean-time, I would not exercise or perform any strenuous activity until seen by your doctor.

Best wishes.
