Hi there, this is my first post, I am after a bit of advice but I don’t want to seem like a twit! I am a 53 year old female, I have seen the Dr for high blood pressure and heart palpitations. I heave been feeling rough for ages but delayed seeing the Dr for all the usual reasons. Anyway, I have blood pressure reading from a home bop monitor that varies between 135-160ish (a few either side of this) / 80-95 (few either side of this). I realise this is not really dangerous except I have a low resting heart rate of 44ish, dips to 32 when I am asleep.
For additional context I am a runner, do Pilates and yoga so I am fit. My weight is 8st and 5ft3.
I have had blood done, the FTC and kidney? Had to be redone and now the Dr has arranged for a phone app in two weeks to discuss. What questions should I be asking, I am a little worried the dr will discount the low heart rate bit and prescribe blood pressure meds and send me on my way. Of course you may tell me this is the correct approach but I am worried.
