Re: ive had enough now
Im not sure what kind of doctors you have that see your pulse at 180 at rest and not refer you to a cardiologist. I am also pregnant and my pulse also gets that high but I was told to go to the ER if it did not go away within 30 mins. Im not trying to make you worry but get to a doc soon.

Golly, ASHEA, hie thee to a cardiologist.

Resting heart rates of 190 - 200 are in no way normal. I have atrial fibrillation, and my heart rate goes to maybe 175 when I'm in afib. I would guess you have an arrhythmia of some kind. But please see a cardiologist, and find out what this is.

Re: ive had enough now
Yes, get thyself to a cardiologist ASAP. What you are describing is not normal. It may or may not be dangerous but it absolutely needs to be evaluated to see what is causing this condition.
