I am having tachycardia (fast heart beat) most of the time. My hb is around 115-120. Is anyone having trouble with this? My bp is ok. I just have a fast hb, which is uncomfortable. If I move around and do stuff then it rises more and makes it harder to breathe. It's not alarming, but I am just wondering if anyone else is having trouble with this?
*Lurking* I don't know what my heart rate is, but I do feel like its been racing a lot. I have a heart murmur so I thought it might be related to that. My friend said this happened to her too, so maybe its a pregnancy thing. You should ask your doctor if you're really nervous about it. Stress just leads to more rapid heart beat.
I called my dr yesterday and she said sometimes it happens in pregnancy. So I guess it's ok. You're in Dallas? I live in Dallas, well, technically in Richardson. I'm loving the cooler weather. Anyway, thanks for your reply.
I've read that our blood volume increases by about 50% during pregnancy, so I'd imagine that could lead to a higher heart rate. I'm glad your doc said it's normal, and I hope you get to feeling a little better soon.
Oops just now reading this. Glad your doc said it was normal. Yep I live in dallas near the mockingbird/greenville area. Lots of my friends have moved to Richardson though, so I'm over there a lot too! Yes the rain has been awesome!

I went for an ultrasound yesterday for pain in my left calf, like i pulled a muscle. They wanted to make sure i dont hace a dvt, a clot.
The lady who did my ultrasound did not say anything. When she was done she said she has some paperwork to do and for me to wait. She left and came back about 10 mins later. What kind of paperwork does she have to do? Isnt everything in the computer? Why did i have to wait for her to do her work? Anyway i asked her if everything is ok and all she said was she cant discuss any results with me. And then she said i can go home and my dr will follow up. I assume everything is ok for them to let me just leave, right? Anyone know about ultrasound tech protocols?
I guess i just injured my leg or something. I think i am getting OLD!!!
i have been having the same thing. i noticed it on my walk back from work it's about 6 blocks or when I walk up the stairs, sometimes it happens just lying down it will start to rise for no reason. I mean to bring it up on my last appt but it slipped my mind.
I got one thing answered. I have a bakers cyst behind my knees, on both of them but only one is more swollen and painful than the other. This isnt probably related to anything except my arthritis.
I am seeing someone for sone followup tests so hopefully i will get some answers soon.
