How do I know if I should go to the ER?

My heart rate is 110 but my blood pressure is 114/53. I'm extremely fatigued and can't walk down the hallway without becoming short of breath. I don't seem to have any swelling and my weight doesn't indicate an increase in fluid.

I have had the breathing, don't wait to long to have it checked out. I didn't want to but my girlfriend from way back some 40 years, she took me to the Dr and from then on I am careful. I also have a defibulator implanted in my chest. I really don't want to find out if it works. We all need to be careful with our hearts and our whole system with all these foods they are coming up with. Not like 30 to 50 years ago. Love you all and take care.

My resting heart rate hovers around 100, and is the same when exercising. B P usually 95 over 64. Metoprolol won't get my heart rate down, and the Sotolol doesn't sync my Afib. I stay active, but fatigue early.

Hope you have at least gone to your Doctor by now. Sometimes there can be swelling around your heart but not show up in the rest of your body.

Are you uncomfortable? The point I am making is only you know when your body is in need of a tuneup. GO!

i have the same problem, taking stairs my heart rate will jump to 160 or more and my resting heart rate is always above 100, bp of 110/60. the bp never seems to increase, just the heart rate. also, when my heart is racing my o2 levels drop quickly
