I have a resting heart rate of 102 bpm. Is it normal ? I don't have symptoms like fainting spells, decongestion in chest etc. However, at times, I feel shortness of breath. I was diagnosed with sinus Tachycardia back in 2011. However, Doctor advised me to do some lifestyle modifications. No medicine prescribed. So, should I worry about it. What can I do to lower this Heart Rate. I'm concerned about it. Is it something to worry ? My height is 176 cms and weight is 71 kgs. I don't have any other underlying illness
