110 beats per minute

I've had chest pains for a few weeks and skipped heartbeats. I saw my GP today and had an ECG which showed my heart was beating 110 times a minute. My doctor has said this is too fast and has said I have to see a specialist at the hospital. This has made my anxiety worse, and of course my heart is beating faster as a result. Has anyone else had similar results from an ECG?

Re: 110 beats per minute

hi in the last 3 weeks ive had 14 ecgs at a&e due to me thinking im having a heart attack. Every ecg i have had my heart was fast the highest was 138 times a minute. but the docs say its anxiety as there is no abnormalaties on the ecg just high heart rate. so your fast heart rate could be down to anxiety/ panic attacks if everything else was fine on the ecg xx

Re: 110 beats per minute

Hi Racheal,

I have been monitored three times and on all three occasions my heart rate was high. thhe doctors have all put this down to anxiety and feeling nervous especially as my tension levels rise when I see a doctor anyway. Is your heart rate always that high or is it just when you are anxious? I can be anxious all the time so sometimes my heart rate is high for quite a while but when manage to relax it comes back down again. I am sure it is ok and it will prob be down to your anxiety. Try and get some rest and if at all distract yourself and take your mind somewhere else, it will be ok and I am sure the specialist will take a look and tell you it is ok!

Jim

Re: 110 beats per minute

On edge in the doctors is bound to set it going 110 bpm or more. Does your doctor know you suffer anxiety and anxiety symptoms?

Also, just wondered if you smoke?

Re: 110 beats per minute

Thanks for all your replies and reassuarance. No I don't smoke or drink and have a very healthy lifestyle, but I have suffered from acute anxiety and panic attacks for over 10 years, which my doctor is well aware of. One contributing factor to my fast heart rate could be the fact that I have been on a high dose of Amitriptyline for several months and that can affect the heart. Over the past few weeks I have been tapering off it. I have had heart related anxiety before and ended up in A&E many times in the middle of the night. 10 years ago I also had an ultra-sound (Echo) of my heart done and everything was normal, so I keep telling myself it is anxiety, although it doesn't seem to help!

Re: 110 beats per minute

I'm an ECG technician and a lot of people who are anxious about going to hospital have elevated heart rates. Normal resting heart rate is anywhere between 55 and 100 and differs if you're on blood pressure medication or beta-blockers etc. Peoples' blood pressure also becomes elevated along with heart rate when attending hospital. Personally I'd say 110bpm isn't excessively fast...may just have been nerves / exertion walking around hospital prior to test etc.

Re: 110 beats per minute

I recently had an ECG and my bpm peaked at 169.

I've been checked out by a cardiologist and my heart is healthy, so... pure anxiety.
