Resting heart rate or 112
Is a resting heart rate of 112 cause for concern. I have trouble breathing and feel a bit dizzy sometimes. My chest feels heavy. I tried some mild cardio and my heart rate jumped up to 165.
I have been to see my family doctor and he is sending me to a cardiologist but it might take a couple months to get in. Should I be concerned?

There are "missing pieces".

The most common cause of mild tachcardia is dehydration, the second is anemia, generally secondary to a lowered hematcrit. Is the tachyacrdia compensatory or of unknown etiology?

Is there lung disease? If COPD is present or asthma, a rate of 112 might be compensatory.

First step should have been an evaluation of erythrocytes, not a trip to the cardiologist.

(1) What is your hematocrit?
(2) What are your othostatic vital signs?
(3) Has your doctor taken arterial blood gases? If so what were the readings?

If your doctor has not ordered a hematcrit, ABG's and not taken orthostatic vital signs find another family doctor.
