Re: Aware of my heart beat
An important factor to note is whether or not your heart beat feels regular, and if the RESTING heart rate (breats per minute) is much higher or lower than around 70 bpm. Also, does it vary much, with or without exercise.If your heart beat is irregular and significantly lower or higher than around 70 bpm (at rest, and not after strenuous exercise) you should see a doctor.This information will also help him/her to make a diagnosis. Anxiety can also cause a higher than usual heart rate, and also make you more conscious of it. However, anxiety will not make your heart beat irregular.I hope everything settles down for you soon. Otherwise, you should see a doctor. The term "heart murmer" is a very general term, and only your doctor would know what it means in your case.A lot of people have heart murmurs or abnormal heart sounds. It may or may not be of any particular significance. All the best.
