Pulse - any thoughts?
I have had my bp under control for over a year now, at about 125/80, using meds (Methyldopa). Due to an injury I could not exercise for quite some time, and having now recently recovered, in January I started going to the gym 3-4 times a week, approx 40 minute cardio workouts. While taking my bp at home on my monitor, it shows my pulse - normally it is about 75-80 bpm, but the last two weeks, it has dropped consistently to 56 bpm, and I can feel this difference in my chest - not pain, but just feeling the difference. My blood pressure is fine. Any ideas about this? Do you think this is a reason I should see my doctor?
