Hey I'm sorry the text box cut me off and wouldn't let me put any more information. My resting heart rate usually is right around 72. Last night I noticed it was 63 and then 65 when I checked again. My blood pressure was 140/90 last time it was checked manually at the doctor about 2 and a half months ago. I have not done nearly enough exercise to warrant that much of a drop in resting heart rate. What could cause this?
Thank you. I didn't realize 72 was a little high. Could just one week cause that much of a drastic drop? Does cutting out sugar lower heart rate maybe?
I haven't been drinking caffeine for well over 6 months now in an effort to give my heart a break so to speak but it didn't lower my heart rate much. I just happened to notice this week that my heart rate was much lower. So at what point should I alert my doctor of my resting pulse rate?
Ok great thanks for your help!
