    I'm in bed having trouble sleeping with my HR at an average of 101 bpm. It's been like that for a couple hours now. Is that normal for it to be like that at rest? I do feel like I'm breathing a little more on the deeper side too but it could just be nervousness.

    I just looked it up , You might want to call your doctor Ty ?

    For an adult, a normal resting heart rate ranges from 60 to 100 beats a minute. For a well-trained athlete, a normal resting heart rate may be closer to 40 beats a minute. For healthy adults, a lower heart rate at rest generally implies more efficient heart function and better cardiovascular fitness.

    To measure your heart rate, simply check your pulse. With your palm facing upward, place two fingers on the thumb side of your wrist  or place your index and third fingers on your neck to the side of your windpipe. When you feel your pulse, count the number of beats in 10 seconds. Time yourself with a timer or the second hand on a clock or watch. Multiply this number by 6 to determine how many times your heart beats in one minute.

    Keep in mind that many factors can influence heart rate, including:

    * Activity level
    * Fitness level
    * Air temperature
    * Body position (standing up or lying down, for example)
    * Emotions
    * Body size
    * Medication use

    Although there's a wide range of normal, an unusually high or low heart rate may indicate an underlying problem. Consult your doctor if your resting heart rate is consistently above 100 beats a minute (tachycardia) or below 60 beats a minute (bradycardia)  especially if you have other signs or symptoms, such as fainting, dizziness or shortness of breath.

    I had a period of time where it felt like my heart rate was outta control...I thought I was dying....pretty sure it was due to stress because it eventually went away after a year or so but it sure did freak me out

    Thanks for the info guys I think I will call up my clinic in 3 hours. That's when they open.
    I feel like I have to breathe a bit harder too but I still think that's just being nervous.

    Now at 128 bpm

    I have recently been admitted for dangerously high blood pressure but that's about it.

    Yea i would have it checked out bro , Especially if you had blood pressure problems.

    What sucks is the more you stress and get nervous about your pressure's and rates the more it goes up.
