Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (1 year ago):

  • have been having a high resting heart rate (over 100) and with just small amounts of physical activity it jumps high. I spent 10 minutes on the treadmill and it climbed to 180. I am 54 years old and just slightly overweight around the middle. I feel tired and weak when this happens but anxious. I can feel the pulse in my neck jumping. I've had a cardiac stress test and ultrasound and there is nothing wrong with my heart. I think it may be be one of the medications I'm on. Synthroid is most recent. Could it be that?
