High Heart Rate...

Does anyone know what a high heart rate means? I felt a little weird so I decided to take my blood pressure with a blood pressure cuff and it said my heart rate was 108 ...took it 10 minutes later and it was 100...took it 20 minutes later and it was 102...and blood pressure was 115/69...or vise vera not sure how to correctly write that...anyway, has anyone else had this happen?

Re: High Heart Rate...

I wouldnt really consider your heart rate real fast, I know a normal heart rate is between 60-100 but you have to remember your heart is working extra hard now so Im sure its normal for it to beat alittle faster. I wouldnt worry about it if your feeling ok, maybe just mention it to your doctor. Take care.

I had the same problem. My doctor told me that as long as it is under 120, it is ok. Anything over 140 to call right away.
