Increased heart rate question

Every time I take a shower my heart rate goes up dramatically. I feel normal (maybe a little dizzier than normal) but my heart rate is as fast as it is during a panic attack. About 5/10 minutes after it slows down but seems a bit off/irregular.

This may sound weird but can any of you do me a favor and check your pulse to see if it's different during a shower? Thanks for any help.

Re: Increased heart rate question

It's very, very normal for your heart rate to increase during and after a warm/hot shower. This is really nothing to worry about at all.

Alright just wanted to make sure. As you probably know, when you have anxiety you think everything is wrong with you.
