Bobbi, it is way more than pickles and ham, unfortunately :( Nearly everything has a sodium content; you have to read labels religiously. Caffeine also increases BP.

My husband had a heart attack in April. His heart rate is high, sometimes 120 just sitting, and his cardiologist put him on metoprolol (Toprol is the name brand)to help with that. His jumped around alot also. So hang in there.

Blood pressure-99/59, Pulse-78. I am on medications to keep it this way. Actually this is good, it has been a lot lower and I have high blood pressure.

You should contact your doctor. Low potassium can cause a rapid pulse rate. If you start feeling bad, you should probably go to the ER and get some IV potassium.

Remember, nobody can go back to the very beginning and make a brand new start, but anyone can start here and make a brand new end.

There's a difference between interest and commitment. When you're interested in doing something, you do it only when it's convenient. When you're committed to something, you accept no excuses; only results."

A normal pulse rate can be from 60 to 100 beats per minute. Women generally have a faster pulse rate than men. Exercise and stress can raise it, but people who exercise regularly generally have a lower pulse rate. My pulse rate tends to stay kind of high, my oldest daughter's also. She saw a cardiologist nearly a year ago for a suspected heart murmur (not there, thank God), and he really fussed at her over hers, and tried to get her to take 100mg of beta blocker a day emoticon She wouldnt. Frankly, I told her I wouldnt either..heck, I have HBP and when doc tried to get me to try a beta blocker, it was only going to be 20mg or so.
ANYhow..call your doc, speak to the nurse, see what they have to say.

That is very strange. Would NOT blame it on the water pill, as I have never seen that kind of side effect from any , as a nurse that is! The normal affect is to lower your pressure.

This is really something you need to report to your Dr. Your normal pulse should be closer to 70-80 if you work out.

Stress affects your cardiovascular system, but it is usually the blood pressure that shows the effect.

See the Dr. he can run tests to figure it out.

Keep a record of your pulse on rising in the morning. After breakfast, and after exercise, and at bedtime. Then you will have something to show him.

Let us know how it comes out.

My doctor recently put me on a water pill and it has worked magic. Now my bp is usually around 115/70.

My question is, my pulse rate is usually high, what is normal? Today it was 129, but I had been at the gym about a half hour before I took it. It has been high other times as well.

How long a time should it stay high after working out?

Can stress cause a high reading?

Thanks everyone,

elle~
