  • Smilerayray92, it could be that your heart is doing what it's suppose to when you exercise. As long as you have clearance by your physician, there is no need NOT to exercise. Make sure you drink water after working out in order to avoid dehydration. Your pulse should go back to a normal rate after that. If you have any concerns, bring it up with your doctor. I hope you are not binge eating anymore, this is the better way to go with exercise. Good Luck
