fast heart rate at doing things...

i was in the hospital..and when i came home my anxtys are getting to me..i take 2.5 mgs xanax aday in divided doses..but the h.r, is at rest 66-72...then i go to do something,,it spikes to 130..scares me bad.i called thew squad and when i walked in front of them it was only 90..so when they left it was ok 4 awile..then bam again...felt like passing out..i take lisinopril,minoxdil,and clondine  for blood p....the minoxdil is messing with me...i took just 1/2 dose sat it was good sunday i dint take any meds till 3pm cu my bp was good or lower..i didnt want to make it any lower..was 110/55  i knew if i would took it it would have sunk like 90/50....so i waited till it spiked at 145/88  within 2 hrs it was 130/70 then now at 1am monday its 97/58  low but not to bad,,during my sleep im sure it will drop more..

Sorry to hear you were in the hospital; what did you go in for? I may have missed that part :P

Stress, anxiety, tension etc can all be detrimental on your body, you need to find a medication that helps that and also find what helps you relax and stop those problems.  It sounds easy right? not so much when you're experiencing them; I've been there and used Lexapro for a month to help calm my nerves after 3 procedures in 4 days that left me with a pacemaker/icd at age 42.

I suffer both high HR and low HR; I was at the dr a few weeks ago and my resting HR was over 125 and had been for a bit, he asked me about it and told me to watch it.   HR's go up and down as well as bp to compensate for daily activities; it's when it continually goes over certain limits that they tend to worry.

My HR will go from 140 and drop to 50 in a blink; make me pass out and my heart stop.  There are some times my HR will be resting 60 daily and then I clean or walk around, shop etc and it's back to 140+ again, I can't catch my breath and get chest pains.

Medications help alot of people with bp/hr issues, but they just make me feel worse.  You need to ask about a Tilt Table Test or HUTT; same thing - some abbreviate it that way.  It will show everything that's going on with your fluctuating bp/hr and if it's dangerous and should be addressed.

Hope you feel better soon and find some answers.
