Quick question for all those knowledgable PT's out there in SP-land. I have an accurately monitored resting heart rate of anywhere between 43-48 and last night while relaxing, it went as low as 37. I also have low blood pressure and more often than not feel a bit light-headed when I rise after sitting.
I have been flagged several times when donating blood for my low heart rate, but at the Dr's office my BP and HR don't seem to be a concern and tend to be a bit higher there also.
Should I be concerned and a bit more assertive with my GP in order to have some more investigation done?
BTW, for the record, I have read that the more fit you are the lower your heart rate. I am physically active but by no means am what I would call an athlete. I do not run or do any sport or activity competitively or compulsively. I raise my HR to the high 140-153 maybe three times a week and add to that walking with DH and the dog, but I don't thing I am THAT fit.
Just looking for some other opinions.
Though we cannot control the winds, we can adjust the sails.
