now, what is this going?

Great.. Which I know no one really can give me a direct answer here.. I need to go have my levels tested,but I thought I would get you alls opinion..

I'm having a strange and unusual problem that I haven't dealt with before or maybe I've never noticed it ..

My pulse is sitting around 57 beats per min at resting. Yes "57". The highest its peaking is between 63 and 70 moving around!

Blood pressure 112/80 sometimes the bottom number is hitting 90. "not good if you ask me"

I'm wondering if am I swinging more into the hypo world ? Heart Failure ? Or is my pulse dropping due to all the walking / swimming I've been doing for 4 months to loose weight?


If this constitutes for anything my body temp is hovering around 97. 3 dropping down to 96.8
Then again I cant really go by these measures b/c even when I was healthy with zero thyroid problems these were the temps I would keep..

Any thought you guys? Thank you in advanced ! : )

Re: now, what is this going?

Try taking your pulse rate in the middle of your swim. Swimming is pretty strenuous so if your rate hasn't climbed from swimming, you can probably attribute the lower rate to thyroid. I know I have read on this board before about people who are hypothyroid who can't get their heart rates up even with vigorous exercise or even break a sweat. Keep us posted.
