Hi, so a couple days ago the doctor told me my pulse and heart rate were a little high. Is pulse and heart rate the same thing? Is it dangerous to have high heart rate and slow pulse? I just don't get it.. someone please answer my questions.
Your pulse is your heart rate...
Calm yourself down and relax your getting yourself excited when your heart rate goes up..
I experienced the same thing about a few days ago when I went to the doctor . It's nothing bad just anxiety you gotta learn to focus on relaxing . It will get better when my anxiety first started acting up that was my first thing was worrying about my heart . Now I have health anxiety every little pain I get I worry something's wrong . Think positive if something was wrong with you.. You wouldn't be here right now. Stay positive !
Perhaps your doctor was referring to your pulse and blood pressure?
If your doctor hasn't mentioned it, I think something to consider is your pulse and blood pressure can be a little higher than normal if you feel anxious about going in for a doctor visit. I think the term for this is white coat hypertension.
