I'm a 30 yrs old woman
It's a little high. And emphasis on little. Actually maybe anything under 100 is ok?
To put things into perspective for you... I've had panick attacks w my heart rate 120-140.
So it's really not bad. Are you taking any meds at all? Decongestant or allergy meds? How much caffeine do you consume? Do you exercise? Drink energy drinks like red bull? These factors will influence it.
So really it's not bad. Oh and by the way me just checking my heart rate well that makes mine go up!! Try asking a friend to count it for ya. Obviously talk to a dr about it. But it does not sound bad.
Hi. I agree with others. When anxious the rate can go up to 140. Because I am on prednisone it goes up to 160 or more. That isn't too good. Xanax helps but I take .25mg and that helps a lot. Not sleepy. .50 makes me too tired. What helps the most is working with an anti depressant like Paxil to help with anxiety.
Anxiety is about fear. Fear creates depression. Working with a therapist who specializes in its treatment can eliminate panic attacks and depression almost completely. I if this is anxiety is due to a bad situation or event, you can change that to no further troubles. If this is a life long issue you can reduce the anxiety and fear to a very manageable, just like anybody else, feeling and know it will pass and not control your life. The field of anxiety research has absolutely blossomed over the last three or four years, it takes work on your part, but to me is a whole lot easier than getting to a gym. In fact, life can open up fairly quickly if you are earnest in making a change. A decade or more ago getting therapy and taking pills was treated as if one failed. Today it is much better understood and people who want help can find help. And get better. Good luck with getting away from the fear and into the light again.
And I am 64 with a crummy disease. You have a wonderful life ahead of you.
