On Sunday afternoon, my dad and I were doing some yard work. Mainly, we were raking leaves, but the later part of the day was spent moving a few large stumps together. They were fairly heavy, but they weren't as bad as I thought. I've lately been noticing that my pulse is a bit high at times, and I knew that work like this would really get my heart beating fast.
I went inside to take a break, and I decided to check to see how fast it was going. Checked the number of beats in 10 seconds and multiplied the number by 6, and I was shocked to see that the number was at least 156!!!
About half and hour later, I checked again, and was relieved to see that it had gone down to 108-114. But later, when I was eating dinner, it was over 130! I've also been noticing that even doing simple things like taking a bath will escalate my pulse to around that area. It's ridiculous!
Any ideas what could be the problems for this, and what should I do? I don't really excercise all that much, and I just sit around doing nothing a lot of the time. Maybe my body's not used to getting up and moving around so much. Still, I don't think the pulse should be THAT high.
