For the last 12 -18 months my RHR has been consistently 55/60 and during exercise is rarely tops 120/125 and soon returns to 55/60.
On Sunday I felt like my heart was thumping and my rhr shot up to 136 even though I was only cooking and watching TV, certainly not exerting myself. It stayed above 115/120 most of the evening.
My rhr has gradually returned to 55/60 over the last three days but should I be worried?.

no but you should go to your doctor and say that youre normally slowed down but having episodes of fast.
Christ, I wish I had readings like yours...I'm a marginal at 135/100 at worst, more like 125/85 usually....and they have me on 5mg of Rampiril. My Mater managed to hit 85/48 and I was calling her a zombie in the making - much sniggering!

jesus is this blood pressure or heart rate?
I went for Heart rate - boom pitty boom in AB speak
These are pulse rates tho rather than blood pressure readings
My heart rate is allso low 50 at rest. Occasionaly get flutters/palpitations usualy after spicy food or to many coffee's but it never lasts long. Worth checking with your doctor tho
Please read this and decide for yourself whether or not you think it's relevant to your query:

Not to worry.
You give a good account of ventricular tachycardia which is a fast but regular heartbeat as opposed to atrial fibrillation which is a fast irregular heart beat.
It is extremely unlikely that you have had a heart attack.
Diagnosis is essential to confirm the diagnosis and to rule out any underlying cause.
Make a routine appt to see your GP.
