    Heart rate drop and spike all at once

    I wear an Apple Watch and donít normally watch my heart rate so closely but I was recently alerted to my heart dropping into the 40ís for 10 minutes at a time quite frequently but it appears it was due to a blood pressure medication I had been on for my migraines for several months with no issues until recently. Since those notifications Iíve been more aware of the heart apps and I check them more often. I notice that on an occasion I have a drop in heart rate to around 40bpm with an immediate spike to around 135 on this last reading that I got. Iím just curious if anyone could tell me what it could be or if itís anything I should be at all worried about. I just donít want to bring it up to my doctor if itís nothing. Iíve recently brought up to her episodes of almost passing out when I was laughing which I was really embarrassed to bring up to her. Thankfully Iíve not fully passed out. I donít want my doctor thinking Iím crazy and would rather seek out some answers on the Internet first! lol

    I'd be more questioning of the validity of the watch!

    I get that and thought that as well but it has happened more than once. I have dizzy problems in the form of Vestibular Migraines which happen frequently for me. But I decided to note the time when I felt some weird not so normal dizzy moments for me. A couple of the times have been spot on with the times of the heart dips. Thatís whatís got be questioning things a little more. I know my watch is NOT a health device. I also donít want it turning me into a hypochondriac! lol. Iím just curious IF itís completely normal for our hearts to do weird things like this if itís not my watch.
