I cant get my heart rate below 100. Its averaging around 110. Its highest being 131.
Its not going to do my any harm, is it?
This has been for at least 4 days

Ive posted in MH as it is due to anxiety/panic

If that is at rest, that is high. Do you take any meds? Maybe you could speak to a Gp, have a phone consultation.

As well as medical advice, any idea as to the root of your anxiety? Can you tackle that and also try some deep breathing.

Im at the doctors this morning so ill mention it.
I take propranolol for my anxiety which also helps lower my heart rate but ive got none left.
I know the root cause of it, but it is something out of my control.
Deep breathing can bring it down to 99/100.
When ive been relaxed and close to sleep it was 88 which is not bad.
Its when im awake. Even when inactive its not budging down much.

I can get mine down by blowing out long slow breaths, but not taking huge breaths in IYSWIM. Def tell doc, hope you feel better soon.
