AMANDA,
GLAD TO HEAR LABS ARE GOOD. BUT KEEP ON TOP OF THEM IF ANYTHING CHANGES. NORMAL PULSE IS 60-80 NORMALLY BUT VARIES PERSON TO PERSON , WATCH YOUR PULSE IF GETS AROUND 25 BEATS EVERY 15 SEC. (100BPM) AND CALL YOUR DOC . TALK TO YOU SOON.

Paroxysmal atrial tachycardia

If thats it, I would have them keep testing your thyroid because on of the things that causes it is hyperthyroidism

Hey, just wanted to say that I had some great tachycardia yesterday afternoon. How odd that I had already forgotten how awful it makes you feel. I guess I've gotten used to hovering in the 100's so when I was 110-130 for a couple hours it was nasty! Lightheaded, exhausted, just an overall weird head feeling. I wish they'd do something for mine but it fluctuates so much from day to day. I still get some readings down around 96bpm every now and then. And now it seems like the pulses don't have quite as much to do with my BP's??? Who knows.

HEy thanks for the name. I asked my doctor and said that is what the name of the condition and actually they have been keeping track of my thyroid since thyroid disease is in my family. They said its normal but on the high side of normal so im being tested every 4-6 months for hyperthyroidism.
