hi, i am 33 RHR 58 to 62, i had high blood pressure when i was younger changed lifestyle 3 years ago, still taking the same medication though(candesartan cilexetilo 16 mg). My avg blood pressure readings are 125 75, lows 110 65.i exercise daily 90 minutes of,heart rate does not go high quickly(i guess thats a good thing) .HOWEVER sometimes after a really tough cardio workout i will go back home and relax then my heart rate might start fluttering , it will not stop beating anywhere from 76 to 82. My blood pressure will be as low as 110 65, i feel i little faintish, tired and i will break into a little sweat sometimes. oh also if i drink alot of alcohool which is very rare but i will wake up everytime with a pounding heart rate of 80 instead of my normal 58. My wife says i should get my blood medecine adjusted and thats why this is happening to me.if youre heart flutters at 75 to 80 could that be atrial fillbration??? should i get a holster????
The only way to know if it is atrial fibrillation is see it on a monitor. Typically atrial flutter is a very irregular rhythm. If your heart rate is regular and you feel it, it is probably not atrial fibrillation. A Holter will only answer the question if you have the same symptoms while you are wearing it. It is worth talking to your doctor about your concerns.
