Stange day at week 6
« on: August 11, 2014, 09:01:17 am »
Yesterday , pills as usual at 6 ,a small breakfast, and then about 9, I got tired, sleepy. Took a nap but could not get any energy. Around noon took my blood pressure. Very low with a heartbeat of 44. I'm a slow beater, but this was not normal during the day. Spent all day in bed, sleeping off and on thru the night. Woke today more rested. Actually worst day I've had so far I think.

This happened to me - my doc didn't change anything, but I think it is worth a call to your doc. I had this intermittently, and it turned out that it was independent of the meds, although at the time I didn't realize it was coincidental.

That's what this is---I'm also a heart case, at that 70-30 spot where one cardiologist wants to put in a pacemaker--the other said to watch events like yesterday closer--which is what I plan on doing
it's a coincidence, yes, but thanks for your take, helped me realize it was, had the wife worried tho

One thing that helped me to remember is that a slow heart rate is usually way better to have than a fast one - it's like driving in the slow lane - easy on the engine, but infuriating for the rest of the drivers.
