Heart Rate

Posted by Azorean on July 01, 2002 at 02:22:20:

I power walk everyday(4 mph)but i can't get my heart rate
over 100 beats per minute,if i jog it will beat faster.
I'm a 41 year old male who is definetly not in the greatest
of shape so you would think that i would have a high heart
rate.My resting heart rate most times is in the 60's.
Does anyone have any ideas,is it Thyroid?

Hi, Azorean.

Perhaps your heart is in better shape than you think. Everyone has different amounts of reserves in every organ of their body, genetically.

The only way you could tell is to get a few cardiac function tests and then you would know.

Let us know what you learn.

I have blood clots in my right lower leg, the suspect one went to my chest on review of a EKG at one point, after injections of Lovenex and Warfarin pills, I'm now taking 10mg of Warfarin daily. My pulse was racing when I sat or stood from a lying position from lying at 47 bpm to 165 bpm. It then slowed to 125 at standing. They have me on Atenol 25mg once daily. It did slow the racing when I'm not doing anything. If I even walk slowing and am on my feet for more than an hour, I get pulputations and I get many strange response inside my head painful, sometimes sharp. I have blurred vision daily and I still have chest pain daily, mostly when lying down and when I resume normal activity for more than an hour. Sometimes at night I have such severe sharp pains (at the least twice a week) that the pain will wake me from a sound sleep and sit me up. Sitting up helps stop the sharp pain and leaves a dull pain mostly on the left side of my chest and down my left arm. They say because I'm a 43 year old women, with no previous heart problems (although, I've told them two years ago I had very similar syptoms) They did a stress test where they injected a drug to simulate excersise to my heart. It did, I cried the intire test due to the amount of pain it caused in my chest. The said the test was positive. Now, they are saying that they preformed a second test which was negative, however, I never had a second test? I'm increasingly growing weaker with more chain pain throughout the day. My job has stopped. I can only work prehaps an hour a day. I'm self employed general contractor of high end housing. Thank God my Clients have been understanding. It started July 19,2002 with a severe chest pain that lasted at least three hours. I held my chest tightly to help control some of the pain. I was not able to go to an emergency room until the next day where the did preform two EKG. One showing slightly abnormal, however, due to my age and blood test the said I was fine. Four days later, another occurance of same severe pain and faintness, I went to a different hospital which again took two EKG. This time, the doctor said due to the difference of the EKG testing, even though it again was slight admitted me. Thank God. They saw my heart rate was at 48 and decided to check for blood clots, they found them and began blood thinners. The told me to leave the hospital and resume normal work activities. I questioned this and they assured me that the blood thinners had already began to work and that no further concern was necessary. I continued to get worse. It became so bad that I could only lay down due to numbness in my head and intire left side of my body. My heart would race as soon as I sat up and I would get ill to my stomach. I insisted that my Healthcare look at me again. They again said I was fine. Then I became so ill I could not get out of bed, eat or walk. Then and now still no diagnosis, they say it is not my heart and I'm fine. Yet, they keep me on these drugs and my chest pains getting worse. I have schedule a second opinion, but the appointment isn't until September 10, 2002. I'm not sure if my chest pains will carry me through until then. The doctor that keeps telling me I have no real medical problem to worry about will see me on September 4th, but I already have heard his concerns and he simply says I just have a pulse that is irregular and that it is not my heart. He has no diagnosis, and does not intend to have any further testing. I feel so sick, I love my family (two kids and a husband) When I get the severe chest pains I cry and pray. The last one that woke me last week, I actually thought I was going to met my maker.
Can you suggest what I might do?

Hi, Wanda.

If I was in your situation I would get copies of ALL my medical records and test results and go to the closest Certified Chelation Physician ASAP. See the archives as to how to find one and read the homepage article. Take your note, here, along with you! A lifetime health history (See the Health Coach Protocol for how to do it.) taken with you would also help.

It seems you are going to have to die to convince your present docs there is something going on that they are missing.

In the meantime, I would start the easiest to absorb kind of magnesium (magnesium glycinate--see the archives) and start a serious wellness program (Something any chelation physician worth his salt would also recommend.)

Let us know what you learn and how you do.
