    Anyone else hypo with fast pulse?

    I thought i read that one of the symptoms of hypo is a slow pulse. Well mine is fast (around 80 usually or higher). My blood pressure is 120/80 or so usually which is just about perfect. I am also on hormones (estrogen and progesterone) for over 25 years for primary amenorrhea and anti-d too. Could they be affecting my pulse?

    Just wondering if my pulse should return to somewhat more normal once i get my other hypo symptoms in order.

    I have had a faster pulse when my levels were hypo, here lately though its been slower when my levels are hypo.

    My pulse has increased significantly since having hypoT.It would always run in the high 50's before, rarely ever crossed over 60.Now I am lucky to keep it below 80(even resting).My blood pressure has ALWAYS been very good-114/70.Now it runs about 125/90.I am not happy about that at all.Before hypo, it was not unusual for my pulse to drop into the 40's while resting.

    Generally speaking, a normal resting pulse is between 60 and 80. However, a person who runs, jogs or does other strenuous exercise on a regular basis may have a resting pulse rate of 100 or higher.
    I too have a pulse rate and bp that runs a bit higher since I started hypo meds. Honestly, I think it has more to do with the meds than the disease. My bp and pulse rate never changed much until I was on the meds.
    But that's just my opinion.

    My heart rate has always been at least 80 while resting - can be in the 100s when I get moving. Blood pressure has usually been low - but seems to be a bit higher now. My cholesterol is pretty low, too - all well within normal limits.
    I guess they need to re-write the textbook!
