The doctor would have indeed ordered further testing / evaluation if they found it concerning. It's not abnormal at all for an anxious heart rate to be greater than 100 BPM. Generally, the standard resting rate for an average, healthy adult is anywhere between 60-100 BPM. It depends in part on your level of overall physical fitness, but also other factors such as smoking, drinking, drug use, family history, weight, etc. Some people manage, somehow, to achieve a resting heart rate in the 50s or 60s, while others may have a resting rate in the 90s. It doesn't mean, on its own, that you'll live a shorter life.
Don't check it repeatedly. You could ask your doc if it's worth monitoring for a week or two at home. And in that case, I think you should only check it once a day at most, at the same time each day, and only after sitting for 10-15 minutes, in order to get an accurate and consistent *resting* heart rate. Measure it manually. Do not rely on your phone, because they can't and won't always be accurate. Feel and measure your number of beats for ten seconds, then multiply by six.
You're fine though, IMO.
This happens to me when I go to the Dr. Its just cause I am there. Probably the same for you. Or, if you are ill or have a fever, that can cause your HR to be high as well.
If the Dr would have been concerned, I bet he/she would have ordered additional testing.
I am sorry you're dealing with this because I know how frustrating it is.
This month, I thought I was only 2 days late for my period. Then I started light bleeding and spotting. I thought I was about to start my normal period, but no. I had no cramping, which never happens for me. That went on for 11 days. Then, I started my real period with cramping and all on day 12. So I was actually 14 days late. That went on for 3 days, then stopped for a day, spotted another day, then stopped a day, and finally spotted the last day. So all total, it was about 18 days. Had an ultrasound, was normal, exam was normal. It ended up just being hormones and stress evidently.
She said it can be caused by polyps and fibroids also, but I didn't have either.
I am 42 and I have had perimenopause symptoms, including the irregular periods on and off since I was about your age. My Dr at the time told me I was too young. But I stopped seeing him and went to a NP. She told me I wasn't too young because she herself went through full menopause at 43. It helps to have a practitioner who can empathize with you.
I am glad I went in and had the ultrasound because even though it made my HA skyrocket, after it was over I could finally stop thinking about it all the time.
Praying you get some relief soon!
What's up guys I went to the doctor the other day and my pulse was 120. She says are you ok. I could my pulse so I knew it was high I could feel it when I walked into the office. I have a heart rate app on my phone it general at the low 90s but sometimes it's in the low 80s. I don't know if I am overly worried about it. My doctor didnt seem to care. But the damn MA says your heart is going tire out if it stays like this. Idk though just another worry for the list I quess.
Hey, it's been a long while since I've posted but I'm back. I wish I could report that I'd been better but that's not necessarily the case. I've been ok but now my battle is tapering off Klonopin. I dont know what happened to the site but I'm glad it's back up I cant tell you how much I value this.
Hi Gilly.... I think I have discussed this with you before. So worried about this burning skin which I have had for a few years. With me it all over.... my arms, legs, face, some areas of my back. Drives me crazy and again it freaks me out about diseases. Dear God how long can so many symptoms persist. Been over 40 yrs. Can you help me!!!!
