What the fuck is wrong with my heart?

What the fuck is wrong with my heart? I have gone to three doctors and had numerous tests done only to be told "Lol IDK". I am:
>30
>Male
>170lbs
>Army veteran(Got out in 2015)
>Unvaxxed, including flu shot
>Walk minimum 3 miles a day with dog
>Hike on weekends and in the summer
My problem:
>Resting heart rate is around 100bpm
>Even going up a flight of stairs at a moderate pace will shoot my heartrate up to 160bpm
>Average walking heart rate is 120bpm
>Started running more often thinking that will help my heart
>Marginal difference
I don't know how long this has been going on. I was born with asthma and got over it when I was in the Army. I ETS'd in 2015. By about 2014 I had issues with breathing and running again, but it wasn't too bad. My 2 mile went form 13:50 at 19 to 16:58 at ~25 and now I run 2 miles in 20 minutes. My heartrate is through the roof when I'm done.

I am at my whits end on what to do here. Do I need to exercise even more? Should I try running with a weight vest(a la kevlar vest)?

          whats your height? 170 pounds is meaningless without knowing ur height

          5'10. Forgot to put that in.

          if multiple doctors couldn't figure it out, maybe there's a chance that whatever you're experiencing is psychological. it will probably be expensive, but it might be worth seeking out a psychologist for an initial assessment

          They all said there is clearly something wrong, but the tests all show normal.

      Could go to a specialist as as well, that's a pretty high resting heart rate for 170lbs

      If you smoke cigs or tobacco would kick that, but a cardiologist might be able to do a diagnosis and the VA might help out

              Mistake. I don't drink much caffeine. When I got to ~200lbs I told myself I can't make fun of fat people at this rate, so I quit drinking soda entirely. I might drink a cup or two of coffee every few days.

        Maybe get a cortisol test, are you stressed all the time? You could try exhaling more than you inhale to see if that temporarily lowers your heartrate a lot.

          You've probably got some form of post-viral syndrome which has given you tachycardia, commonly known these days as long covid. For all the fearmongering about the vaccine, the disease itself can cause long-term damage as well.

      What's your blood pressure?
      When did you have your last ECG done?

      When I have had blood pressure taken it has always been normal, or as the nurses proclaim "perfect".
      >ECG
      A year ago. My family has a history of heart disease, usually due to intake of an abundance of starch, soda, and alcohol. My father had an enlarged heart and died of complications from heart surgery. My ECG came up clean so I do not have cardiomyopathy.

        I think you need to get Peaty and also test for hormone issues and thyroid issues and maybe concern yourself with potential microbial overgrowth within your body.

          I did have some weird gut issue for awhile. Didn't shit solid for two months followed by a month of constant constipation. That went away. I had an "alternative medicine expert" tell me to try Lugol's Iodine and gave me a bottle of it as well as some other things. I'm skeptical but not against.

          >post-viral
          I have had this issue prior to COVID. I have noticed a lot more fatigue since COVID, however.

          From what I understand there's some issue of interpretation and a lot of people would benefit from more t4 thyroid hormone. It could be excess of that one hormone that makes you feel unconsciously helpless though which might be seratonin.

          I will mention it with my new physician

          Maybe exclude some things from your diet one at a time, or try a different style of eating. Lots of people report solved mysteries when they do a dramatic switch. Would caution against veganism.

          To be fair removing soda is generally a good thing. I have also removed seed oils as much as possible, as well as fast food and HFC. I admit I will eat taco bell once a month or two. My diet consists of steaks, lots of chicken, lots of spinach and broccoli, and occasionally rice. And a lot of lamb and venison.
          >veganism
          Kek. I will never go vegan or vegetarian

          Should have taken the vax.

          Never.

            said

            Also. Could be you accumulated blood clogging over poorer diet at an earlier age and meat does not help with that at all. Do you have noticeable veins in your legs ?
            Either way what can help you is cleanup diet like the Ray Peat stuff, but not just that, some abstinence from heavy meat for a while.

            Additionally, you can check your acidity vs alkaline levels.
            For a while you should aim at low acidity. Lower all heavier food for a month. See how it affects you.

      Have had bloodwork done, I presumed and was told that thyroid issues would come up with that. Nothing came up. However, I have another appointment to meet my new physician coming up so I'll bring it up with him.

      being a veteran it's possible you have some kind of stress disorder and not know it? If you really cannot find anything physically wrong I would at least consult with a psych, one who works with vets.

      Doubtful. I didn't do anything exciting in my military service. I only mentioned veteran to show I haven't been a couch potato my whole life.

    Low oxygen? If your heart rate is high at rest, maybe your oxygen absorption or transfer is being inhibited somewhere along the way and your body is compensating by just increasing rate of blood flow. I'm no doctor, but try using an oxygen can for high altitude hiking and see if your heart rate goes down.

      >oxygen can for high altitude hiking
      Kek. The highest altitude where I live is <800 feet. Most everything is around 680 feet. I do agree with the oxygen absorption, and one doctor mentioned this is the most likely cause - but as far as why it occurs particularly on inclines even when walking one was troubling to him.

      Seems almost worth it to try and get my ass to Mayo.

        >this is the most likely cause
        And this was ruled out by your "normal" bloodwork. Your hemoglobin was right. Considering it's been going for years internal bleeding can be ruled out as well as dehydration. I asked you for ECG but you said it was "normal". Are you using any stimulants (caffeine, nicotine etc)? Do you have GERD?

          To be specific with the ECG, "nothing outstanding was found".

          Very little caffeine, if any at all in a day. No nicotine.

    There is a doctor in town with his own practice that doesn't necessarily practice alternative medicine, but supports it and has a different outlook on things. My brother goes to him for testosterone and told me he said ivermectin was prescribed as flu treatment until COVID hit and so forth.

      I've had a similar problem that comes and goes.
      I also have asthma and had breathing issues and allergies. I also had anxiety, panic attacks and insomnia due to ptsd, but those I managed to fix for good, haven't had that shit for many years.
      I have no idea what causes your issues, but mine are cause by constant allergies due to poor living conditions and not getting enough deep sleep early in the night. I can highly recommend you to try the Wim Hof breathing method, the 15 minute shit for beginners, after I do it my heartrate drops from 100 to 60 and stays there for a long time.
      My condition also can go away on its own if I do weird exercise targeting my ribcage, sometimes it's almost feels like something in my heart gets loose and I gotta smack it back in like a faulty old tv. Perhaps one day it's gonna stop beating after the smacking like my dads, fucker gone away at 55, but I ain't done yet.
      What had helped me get rid of it almost entirely was spending the whole day outdoors biking in the summer, doing a lot of meditation and deep breathing, going to sauna a lot and fixing my anxiety and diet. make sure you're eating enough magnesium+potassium, and good luck to you.

    Schedule a stress test with the cardiologist, OP. You may be suffering from unexpected arythmias without even knowing it.
    >t. died of cardiac arrest but was brought back to life
    It turns out I have a genetic mutation known as CPVT. It's very quiet until it's not and you drop dead unexpectedly. Many people have this without even knowing about it.

    In the stress test the doctors will have you on a treadmill with heart monitors attached. You'll run a progressively harder course until they find irregularities.
