Last doctor appointment (3 or so weeks ago) I had a high heart rate. I am now doing a gym class where we have to take our heart rates. I took it after sitting at my desk for 30 minutes and mine was 114. For a 17 year old that is fairly high "best range" being 60-80. So I have taken it several more times over and over and I finally took it right when I woke up this morning and it was 114. As soon as I woke up ( no alarm). I have a feeling this is why I can't hardly sleep.
I took it after doing cardio in gym for 10 minutes as well. That result was 150. Only 10 minutes of cardio and I had waited 30 minutes to take it.
We are trying to get in to my very good family doctor (who we should have seen to begin with) but he is retiring this year and he is very booked. It is a possibility that I won't be able to get in until March. I was wondering if you guys know anything about Tachycardia and whether I should see a different doctor instead if he can't get me in until march.
Keep in mind that it has been high 3 weeks now. I took it right now and it is about 94.

Not sure if a family dr. is the right one to see, but is a good start. If you can't see him, maybe he could recommend a cardiologist for you to see in the mean time?

We managed to get an appointment with the good doctor on Wednesday. I've been recording my heart rate when I wake up for the doctor to see when we go in on Wednesday. Well see what he says, I don't know if I'm bad enough to see a cardiologist. Of course my good family doctor will tell us whether I should or not.
I had a really rough night last night. I tossed and turned and could not get back to sleep from 3 to 5:30 and woke up again at 6:30 when I got up. I'm also not feeling very good today ( head ache, sore legs, "sour" stomach). I'm really excited to see a doctor who I know is committed to finding out what is wrong and helping me out in the meantime. I'm thinking the reason I have a hard time sleeping is because I can't get my heart rate under 90.
Any who I'm glad we got in on Wednesday. Hopefully I don't die in the meantime lol, jk.

My normal resting heart rate is higher than the average and I'm very sensitive to anything that stimulates the heart. It is not unusual for me to have a resting heartrate of 90 or so.
I hope you can sort things out soon. Have you considered trying the gluten free diet again? It might bring you some relief. You may not be celiac, but there are plenty of people with gluten intolerance that are affected just as much.
Celiac disease(positive blood work/biopsy- 10/2008), gluten free oat intolerent, Hashimoto's Thyroiditis/Disease, Raynaud's Disease
celiac disease(positive IgA tTG, no biopsy- 11/2010)
repeated negative bloodwork and negative EGD/biopsy. Started on a gluten free trial(8/2011). He has decided to stay gluten free due to all of the improvements he has experienced on the diet.

When I mentioned it to my PCP she didn't think anything of it. I also have a lot of trouble sleeping.
I hope you'll post what you find out?

As the immune system is attacking the thyroid the thyroid is trying to fight back. This can result in radical changes in your blood tests.
