How fast does a heart have to beat to be diagnosed with Tachycardia? Is it a constant resting beat over 100bmp? I tend to overreact and get worried with my 78bmp resting rate. Also it's usually around 105bmp if I get a reading at a supermarket after walking around. It gets to 170bmp while running. But I've never had it go higher than that.
I was at 109 one time at the cardiolgists office and I saw him put it in his notes as Tachycardia so I think anything over 100, but I also know they don't like it really in the 80's and 90's either as it makes them uncomfortable, I have been given meds until my heart rate is like in the 60's and 70's.
170 is ok for exercising IF you are "normal" but if you are not normal as in have a heart condition that might cause some distress to the drs.
I have been kept in the hospital with heart rates like around 109-139 and kept a few days for testing and for them to get my rates back down to normal...but then my hospital has told me I am high risk...so they have to keep me since my problems have started in Jan. 2010.
I had always thought that "hopefully" they would just give me some meds and send me on my way after the meds, because I think they do that alot but maybe not in the cardiac world...I don't know I just know what the hospital informed us last time we were there.
I see, thank you. My heart has been checked tons of times over the years because my dad has MVP. I'd assume if my HR was of concern, someone would have told me. My thyroid hormone is a little high, but nothing I've ever needed medication for. That has been tested 3 times. So no reason to worry, right?

I would say you are probably good to go, 105 walking around a supermarket would be considered light exercise so that wouldn't worry them as much as if it was a resting rate and if you have been checked out several times I would say don't borrow trouble, you are probably fine
