king_saladin Posted February 7, 2005 Report Share Posted February 7, 2005 Particularily in the last year or so I've noticed my 'resting' heart rate often going below 60bpm. I take a beta blocker daily.I get a lot of aerobic exercise every year, but I'm out of condition for the winter and now often get readings below 55bpm.Two immediate family members also usually have low resting heart rates... and although they both take a beta blocker as well, I know one of them has had a low resting HR well before they started taking meds.Occasionally my heart rate will jump up around 70bpm, but it mostly stays between 47-63 when ever I'm just sitting around.So I ask, what is your typical resting heart rate?I'm very curious about why my resting heart rate is a bit below the average. I don't know how much of it is caused by genetics/aerobic conditioning, compared to being caused by POTS. Does POTS ever really make heart rate decline (when the blood pressure is still in normal range)?Thanks for any responses. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
