Hi,

I think if you have concerns about your heart then the best course of action would be to book an appointment with a Doctor. Often, I've found that my heart rate is faster than expected simply because I'm thinking about it which then causes anxiety which then further increases my heart rate. It's a vicious cycle.

I think you're probably panicking which is causing your heart rate to increase. Try some deep breathing and try to focus on something else for at least one minute.

Johnnie, I get that way when seeing a doctor especially the cardiologist. Once I'm in the office and the doctor listens to my heart, all is well, all is calm. Go figure. Tomorrow, let the doctor know that you have these continuing symptoms which don't allow you to enjoy your life. Ask for some answers. Good Luck tomorrow and let us know what the results are when you get back. Meanwhile tonight, try to relax and do some deep breathing, your pulse will go down. You are not alone.

It's not good to check you're blood pressure when you're experiencing anxiety because it will only make it worse if you think it's higher than it should be. 137 on the top is not high. 140/90 is considered mild high blood pressure. When you're anxious or scared your body shoots adrenaline into your blood stream which temporarily raises your blood pressure. I have perfect blood pressure, but when I get scared or anxious it goes up temporarily. If you wait 10 minutes and relax it will go down. I had health anxiety about my blood pressure for years and it caused unnecessary anxiety. You have to learn to relax and let the anxiety and rapid pulse run its course and it will pass. You will be okay.
