I woke up the other morning and felt kind of dizzy and hot. I took my bp and it was fine but my pulse was 111. it took awhile to go down, but 90's was the average for the day. So the next day I took my pulse just getting out of bed and it was 115 and this morning the same thing. Before bed last night my pulse was 75.

What would cause it to be so high in the mornings and I am wondering if it is high when I sleep as well. I think I had something like this happen to me a year or so ago and went to my doctor and he didn't seem to think much about it but ran a bunch of tests anyway and I was fine.

Over-active thyroid is one cause. But you really need to talk to your doctor b/c there are a number of potential causes.

I had a high pulse rate for years, I once checked it and it was 196 bpm, but that was at its worst.
It turned out that I had high blood pressure and high cholesterol, I fixed both with regular exercise.

Your pulse rate doesn’t seem unreasonably high, not really high enough to worry yourself about anyway, but if it is still worrying you, get yourself checked out by a Doctor.

On another note, Alcohol can raise pulse rate and blood pressure, but I am not sure if that applies here.

I had a year or so of a high pulse rate, 110 resting at times. My Dr didn't know what was causing it but it did go away after I started getting more regular exercise and lost a few lbs. Some things in life are a mystery, even to Dr's.

On a side note, my 19 year old son is wearing a heart monitor for the next couple of weeks because he just started having episodes of rapid beating/palpitations. He is active and thin so my excuse won't work on him. But still, the Dr (a cardiologist this time) doesn't have a clue.

I had something like this happen a year or so ago. because I just had a baby and I develped hypterension after I gave birth and family hx of heart disease, he ran a bunch of tests. my cholesterol is perfect. I did a thallium stress test, I had a regular stress test, they did some kind of imgaging with my heart, they did a 3d ultrasound of my heart. Everything has come back fine.

I probably wouldn't have noticed except the other morning I just didnt feel good and took my BP which was fine, but then I noticed the pulse and panicked. Just seems so strange it's high upon waking in the morning. I am wondering if it's high when I am sleeping at night.

Its a good idea to check in with the doctor for this one. They can always give you a holter monitor that can measure and record your heart rate and rhythm of your heart to wear for 24-48 hours at home if needed to see if its happening in your sleep.

My pulse rate is high. Between 85-105 everytime I check it. The first thing i did was stop using caffiene. I read that magnesium slows the heart rate. I started taking magnesium supplements a few days ago but so far it hasn't made a difference.

Is there anything I can do? My blood pressure is normal. only the pulse rate is high. If I didn't see the test I wouldn't know anything is wrong. I don't have any chest pains or shortness of breath. When I went on a recent hike, I had the most stanima of everyone in our group, I never got winded at all.

I can't see a doctor because when I lost my job I lost my health insurance. So I am trying to fix this myself.

The magnesium is working after all. My pulse rate today was 80 the lowest I have seen in recent memory and 15 points below my normal average. It is going in the right direction, BTW I am taking Magnesium Taurate which I read is especially good at relaxing and slowing down heart.

Hello. I've had same issues, but with weakness n shortness of breath. I have hbp. I'm 200 pounds n I'm on BP meds for 4 y now. I've had a nuclear stress test done the nurse over the phone had said it was OK and didn't see anything alarming to come in early. That he will explain to me me on my follow up. It scares me by I've had the symptoms of heart disease n failure n all. This all happened when I started exercising well walking. Well this has I've had other symptoms months ago....I've also been stressed out so bad n everything bothers me. My heart rate usually at rest is 95 to 112. Depending how long I rest lol one day it was in the 70s at rest idk what it could b. It's scary. I mean I'm on BP meds. I read something like tackycardia what is this exactly n can it go away?
