Having been told if I get fitter and off the steroids I can have lung reduction surgery.Having been put back on aminophyline which now actually works and even finding the steroid reduction a lot easier I,m feeling pretty positive.When I got the phone call from the physio at P.R. To tell me my long term rehab class was back on having been cancelled because of staff shortages,I thought great,perfect timing.Went along on Monday,filled in some forms ,then the new physio took my blood pressure/heart rate "is your heart rate usually this high" says she"110?that,s not high it,s usually 120/130" says I." I can,t train you if your heart rate is above 100 at rest".My heart rate has always been high but it,s never caused a problem,the consultant said it,s because I breathe so hard.She even said a trainer at a gym would want a heart rate lower than 100 .So looks like I,ll just have to train myself.It,s does,nt make any sense,surely the only way to get heart rate to normal is by training.Once again the system has me baffled!Easy breathy!
