Heart rate staying higher than normal after exercise?
I am 15 male. After some intense running today at basketball, very strenous and intense my heart rate stayed within the normal range( 60-100) but higher than normal. usually my resting heart rate is 68-75 beats per minute. But after i ran a lot at practice it rose to like 95-104 when i checked about an hour or 2 after runninglike its barely in the normal range. My blood pressure is normal and feel fine. I do not drink alot of water during running. But after the running today i drank about 4-5 cups of water till now. Is it really dehydration? or could i be dehydrated which is causing this increase in heart rate.
I have had 2 Ekg['s and an echo done which came out normal for anxiety. I am still wondering why its been about 2 hours since the last time I ran like when will it start going down? Is there something wrong? It has happened once before again with a lot of running it slowly step by step came back down to about 68-75 within 3-4 hours.
Also when i am at rest my heart rate is forceful and strong when it beats fast like this it is just like really fast with not much force in it. That might be stating the obvious but i dont know.
It was down to about 90 as i write this question it is 80-85. Like how long does it take to recover from dehydration i am constantly drinking water like i said 5 cups till now,
Dehdration is a possibility. Your heart has to beat faster in order to compensate for the decrease in fluid to keep your blood pressure normal. You seem to know alot about possible causes. Could that make you more aware of what is going on and thus cause some anxiety which will keep your heart rate elevated. As an athlete you should drink about a half gallon to a gallon of water a day to keep yourself hydrated. If you remain concerned about this ask your doctor for a stress test. This is done on a treadmill and they watch your EKG while you are on the treadmill. Also how much do you way being overweight or underweight can cause strange symptoms while exercising. Good luck. If you begin experiencing any chest pain, shortness of breath, or dizziness see a doctor ASAP.
Well, when you run, your heart rate is going to go up...way up. It normally takes a long time for it to come back down, especially if you're anxious and dehydrated. The reason you feel weird when you're in the gym is simply anxiety. Look up that...I'm pretty sure you'll find you have it. You actually need more than just 8 glasses of water a day, and you need even more than that if you're running and the such. An easy way to see if you're dehydrated is by checking your pulse laying down, then stand up and check it again. If there's a big increase, you're dehydrated...my doctor told me about that. Also, the color of your urine will tell you...if it's dark yellow, you're dehydrated. You want it to be clear or a light clear yellow.
Just realize that running causes an increase in heart rate...if it didn't you would pass out.
