HR Suddenly Low, can someone give experiences?


Recommended Posts

I think I'm okay, but it's weird seeing such low numbers. My wrist tracker is showing my HR around 65-80 bpm when I'm sitting, but it's usually 90-100. When I'm standing and walking around, it is around 75-85 now, but it usually is around 105-120.

I'm not feeling any different than normal, and I haven't done anything differently today. Is it just a blip day, maybe because I just finished my period. I wonder should I be concerned at all?

The wrist trackers can give false readings because they use optical technology instead of actually measuring the pulse like the chest strap monitors do. Moisture, tightness (they need to be tight), hair and some others things can cause readings that are not valid.

Are pulse finger oximeters the same in terms of false readings? I also have one of those and it shows the same numbers

Pulse oximeters use the same technology.

Plus when I feel my pulse, it's not beating as fast or as hard as usual. Maybe it's just a non-pots day.

Maybe it is a non-POTS day! Maybe just try counting your pulse with your fingers--that does lie.

@WanderWonder - a HR of 65 - 80 is completely normal, REJOICE!!! In dysautonomia we have good and bad days, so you might simply be going through a good spell.

Good to know I'm ok with these low numbers! It's weird because it's happening again, usually around 3pm. I did take 500mg of vitamin c both times right before. I'll have to experiment more and see if anything triggers it.

I've read that Vit C can lower BP in some people, but don't quote me on that! 

As @Pistol said, a HR in those ranges is quite good, so no cause for worry.
