On sun almost 2 weeks ago i had what can only be described as Tachycardia. My heart was beating soooo fast. I was talking to a friend about something upsetting I stood up & BAM out of no where my heart started racing... Has anyone had this?
 
Ive had Panic attacks before but never like this...All input is appreciated!!

I had jury duty a couple of years ago, and the case was a molesting one-only too familiar, along with being a victim of a violent crime later in life. I thought my heart was going to explode!! I had to tell this whole room of strangers why I couldn't render "justice" and be totally fair to the defendant. I know the feeling!

Hello and welcome to HealingWell and the A & P Forum. 
I am sorry to hear you are having some runs of tachycardia.  This may be caused by your anxiety, however there are other reasons for tachycardia.  If this continues to be a problem for you please do make an appointment with your physician for a medical screening exam to rule out other medical causes for the fast heart rate.
 
You will find reading through the threads that fast heart rates in times of stress and anxiety are very common to our members.
 
Again a warm welcome to HealingWell.

TACHYCARDIA.....  is a very scary feeling...I didn't know I had this SERIOUS problem whatsoever in APRIL 2005....I was in my Mother-in-Laws kitchen making a sandwich and my heart just started racing very  very fast....I could literally see my clothes moving so fast that I really didn't know what was going on....So I sat down and it passed.....after almost passing out....Then  the same week it happened again and I was rushed tp the ER....MY HEART RATE WENT TO 243 beats per min........according to the ER physician......They  did a heart catherization and  on May 24th, 2005..... My Dr. in in BR, LA  told that I needed a defib and pacemaker......So after that implant......in August  2005  3 0r 4 days before Hurricane KATRINA came in I got my first defib shock while bending down to wipe my refrigerator down...needless to say I have learned this past year that my defibs wire SPRINT FIDELIS LEAD WIRES
are on a recall.....by the FDA.......I'm scared but I'll let GOD handle all of this....GOOD LUCK TO YOU ALL................

I know 243 BPM is really too fast. But what is fast because my heart rate gets up to between 109-114 when I'm at the office working. But I guess when I hit 123 I was told that was a little too fast for me and if I calmed down that my heart rate would go back down. hmmm I don't really understand all that.

Good Morning,

Here are your heart rates.

For resting heart rate:

  • Newborn infants: 100 - 160 beats per minute
  • Children 1 to 10 years: 70 - 120 beats per minute
  • Children over 10 and adults (including seniors): 60 - 100 beats per minute
  • Well-trained athletes: 40 - 60 beats per minute
There are several different types of Tachycardia with a range of heart rates or BPM (Beats per minute).
 
Hara, a heart rate of 109-114 BPM is a Sinus Tachycardia and is often linked to anxiety. 
 
I hope this helps and please do feel free to ask any questions you may have.
 
I will be glad to try to answer them for you.  Please remember I am not a physician.
 
Gentle Hugs
Kitt

I get the fast beating heartbeats. I've had the heart monitors, EKG's, ultrasound and stress test. I've been told it's caused by anxiety. Once the doctor tells you this, you can relax and begin to accept the racing/skipped beats. Others have actual heart problems and that's why their heart rate goes much higher. I'm glad you're seeing a heart doctor to put your mind at ease.
