Been feeling pretty good the last week or so! But the past couple of days the heart rate fears/ concerns have been creeping in (pretty rapidly) and there's one in particular that I'm REALLY struggling with today which is my resting pulse! 😩
55-62 Bpm seems to be the kind of average that I'm measuring using a monitor (and yes I know that's never a good idea) and even though it's been like that before (like, on and off for over a year from what I know), it's kind of freaking me out! I'd understand if I was an incredibly active person, but since my problems started, my activity levels have plummeted and besides going out for a bit once or twice a week etc. I don't really do any exercise as it makes me feel like sh*t! I'm 5' 10" and around 239 lbs, which is quite a way off of "in shape" for a male my height aged 21, so I really don't see how my resting rate can be so low?
Does anyone else seem to have this, and do you see any correlation to anxiety/ stress or other symptoms? Bare in mind when I'm up and about it's around 90-100 which I'm fine with and doing something sat down (playing guitar, keyboard, video games etc.) it's usually 70s so it only seems to be low when I'm like barely moving at all. Any reassurance and/ or advice would be ace! 😎 Cheers x
