Is it normal for your heart rate to doulble walking up one flight of stairs? My heart rate goes from ~60bpm to ~120bpm. I also feel a little out of breath. I also notice I feel more out of breath when exercising, but my maximum heart rate is around 120bpm. I am a 37 year old, nonsmoking, nondrinking, normal weight female.
I believe I am having problems with GERD, as well. I have pressure in my chest and sometimes throat. I feel like I am not getting a good breath. Sometimes food tends to go down my throat more slowly. I wake up in the morning with thicker than normal mucus in my throat. I have tried several PPIs, which have not helped. The doctor sent me for a pulmonary function test, because I didn't do well on a peak flow meter test. She did an X-ray and thought I had either some constriction or restriction. I don't have the results back from the PFT, but the technician performing the test didn't notice anything significant. I sound like I'm going off on another rabbit trail here. Honestly, I don't know if this is a gastro, pulmonary, or heart issue. Thanks for any input.
