    For once someone on Tsr is listening and taking my post seriously, so thank you.

    I've had numerous trips to A&E, 5 ECGs, 6blood tests, Dr appointments galore and no Dr cud wrk out whats wrong, apart from noticing i have a bad chest that grumbles when they listen to my chest. So I'm on the strongest antibiotics to clear it this weekend. The Drs even said it might be Costochondritis?? :dontknow:

    I get anxiety a lot, esp. lately with trying to find out what's wrong. I was under investigation for DVT and that has contributed a lot to my anxiety, constantly fretting and worrying that they've missed something or I've got a clot on my chest. But Drs have said that no clot was found on my scans and everything seems fine.

    I think I jus need to chill out, like ya said and take it easy. And battle with this chest. I WILL beat this damn thing and not ruin my graduation on Tuesday.
    ECG's are a waste of time. You want an echo.

    Resting I'm at 50-60 beats per min. 93 is really high, although you may have checked it at the wrong time. The best way to check your heart beat is in the morning when you have just woken up and haven't ate anything and your not suffering from a cold or an injury.

    You'll be surprised what the heart can handle. Apparently it can go well into the 200s before becoming fatigued.
    This is very true.

    Because unless you get a 24hr one it is unlikely to pick up problems unless you are experiencing some problem (e.g. palps) at the time of the ecg test

    They're not a waste. A really good tool for picking up inital problems and give a baseline comparison if anything changes.

    I was taking you seriously. I thought you had already exhausted factors like stress and anxiety. I may not be a qualified doctor but i'm halfway through the process.
    I meant to quote you as well, just on the iPhone it's too much hassle to go back and forth. But I have taken your post seriously. Anxiety is contributing to it I agree, and stress isn't helping much. BUT I'll battle on, determined to fight it.

    Well I've had 5 over the past 3/4wks, even 3 in one day, two of them being a few hrs apart. Everytime they've showed exactly the same and Drs have been fine with that.

    88 bmp but then I've just ran down the stairs. 96 beats per min when resting isn't exactly normal but anything can set your heart rate off, food/drink etc.

    No, I didn't think they were a waste of time. Just baffled at that persons comment, considering how many tests I've had.

    I'm on antibiotics which I'm guessing might have pushed it up. I went to the Drs Friday and he looked at my heart rate then and it was fine.

    I've battled severe anxiety it can really feel like you're ill/dying but i found that the symptoms were just due to my heightened awareness of myself. Good luck with everything

    Some people naturally have a resting heart rate in the 90s... I personally wouldn't consider that to be a problem? My flatmates heart rate is normally somewhere between 90 and 100 at rest.. and she's not unfit or anything. Mines normally in the late 80s at rest...

    I wouldn't bat an eye lid at anything between 55 and 100 or so to be honest.

    Exactly what I said. We were discussing at work the other day how when we were not in nursing or at the very beginning of training anything mildly abnormal we'd freak out at and go 'OMG YOU'RE GOING TO DIE'- and how other people without training tend to do that too. Now 2 years into this career..I only start properly panicking when they stop breathing
