Heart rate or blood pressure?

The first time this happened to me, I thought about how I had heard how doctors have to do certain things and didn’t want to experience that, thank you. That may have changed, I just don’t know, but when it happened the first time, I thought to myself, that if I were to jog, it might be possible to bring the rest of my body up to the rate of the heart, thru jogging and then bring my body and heart rate down together. It might be blood pressure that is doing this, instead of heart rate.

As it happened, I was lucky and it happened just as I had intended it. While I’m sure there are probably many cases that could not do this, it would be wise to consult your physician first, but hey, that won’t make them any money and I don’t believe physicians even know that this can be done.

It was kind of scary the first time I did it, because I had never heard of such a thing before in the medical field, but it worked for me, I hope it can work for you.

When I jog, I jog in place and at a very slow, almost as slow as I can make it and as the body and breathing allow, I raise the rate just a little and jog for about 30 minutes, maybe longer if necessary, but usually, when the body allows you to step it up just a bit, the heart rate is starting to align with the body and you can walk them down together for about 5 to 10 minutes.

Be smart, stay strong,


I got the part where you went jogging and got your heart rate up, but you lost me after that. What do you mean when you say you “brought the rest of your body up to the rate of your heart”? Why was this scary? :confused:

Scary comes in, when I remember that people with elevated heart rates used to be shocked with cardiac paddles that resusitate people after a heart attack, but as I already said in my origional piece, that could have changed, I’m just not sure. All my contacts to the medical world are gone now. As to the origion of this piece, my problem with elevated rates, happens when I lay down to sleep and find that my body is pounding while I am laying still. Hope this explains what you wanted to know.

As far as I can see, you’re advocating a slow warm-up for a gentler workout. This is nothing new, and certainly doesn’t belong in Great Debates.

Moving to MPSIMS.

From what you wrote, I don’t think you see the point. The exercise spoken of in my piece, is in response to either tachycardia, or pretty harsh rise in blood pressure, for no discernible reason.

Thanks for the response.

No, really, it is old. You had massive fluctuations in heart rate & blood pressure cause you were out of shape. You started exercising, got in shape, and now it’s not a problem any more. You may have a slight variation that you’d never heard of before, but I’m really not seeing anything new here.

Under the tips of my fingernails, I can see the color purple, does that tell you anything?

That you’re human & not dead yet?

Ok, Boy Scout11. I’m going to use my Medical History-Taking Skills[sup]TM[/sup] to try to decipher your cryptic OP. You’ll let me know if I get this right.

Sometime in the past (you don’t say how long, I’m guessing a couple of weeks) you noticed that your heart was racing. You thought of going to the doctor but decided not to because you were afraid the doctor might do something unpleasant to you that you’d heard about. I’m guess that this “thing” was either shocking you with the paddles (cardioversion), a rectal exam or masturbation. Instead you decided that you would “bring the rest of [your]body up to the rate of the heart” by jogging. Am I on the right track?

The heart beats at a certain rate. Sometimes it’s fast, sometimes it’s slow. Exercising and hot chicks generally increase heart rate, resting and sleeping generally decrease heart rate. To my knowledge, the rest of the body doesn’t beat at a certain rate (insert another masturbation joke here). I can’t speak as to why your heart felt like it was racing while you were laying down.

Either way I’m glad this is in MPSIMS, because I still don’t know what the hell he’s talking about.

As for the fingertips, pink and warm is good, cold and purple is bad.

Anyway it’s good you’re not dead yet. Maybe you should go see a doctor at some point.

It matters little, that you choose to say what you do, without your being able to comprehend all that I spoke of. I guess many people like to make fun of what they do not understand and I will now put an end to this.

Have fun.

If nobody understands what you’re saying, it’s probably not because everybody else has poor communication skills.

Could this be a symptom of anxiety or a panic attack? Although I can see why jogging might help calm your heart and bring your body back in tune, I think that just getting out of bed and gently stretching a little, then getting back into bed slowly might be an easier solution–i.e. don’t lay down right away, first sit down on the edge of the bed, take a few deep breaths in and out. You can also try propping yourself up with pillows, so that you aren’t lying completely flat. Also, in my opinion you should never be afraid to go see a doctor. They can’t use the paddles on you without your permission, and I really doubt they’d do that anyway.
