Hi I'm a 50 year old female. Over the past month or so I've noticed on several occasions when checking my blood pressure at home that my pulse rate is rather low (55+ BPM). I am not an athlete and would consider myself overweight with a sedentary lifestyle. I had a stress test in April that was normal and recently had a thyroid panel done because I have nodules on my thyroid but my thyroid blood test were normal. Is this concerning and what could be the cause?
I had an anxiety attack that prompted the stress test. No real symptoms other than I notice that when my pulse is low my blood pressure is increased, this could be because I'm somewhat concerned about it and so I'm stressing myself out...not sure
