    slow heart rate??

    I am having episodes of slow pulse. I was in th ER a week ago w/ my pulse in the low 40's my husband saw the monitor even go to 38 bpm.

    I don't know if the ED checked my thyroid. I am 19 days post partum and I am breastfeeding.

    I have an appt w/cardiologist wednesday, I am freaked out.
    My pulse has not been that low since last weekend, its resting in low 50's.
    slow hr anyone w/thyroid disorder?
    any advice or input?

    thanks dani

    Re: slow heart rate??

    Danilee, I agree. Get a copy of your lab reports.

    See what your TSH is. You want this low, around 1.0 OR at least below 2.0 (even though some doctors still use the range of up to 3.5 or even 5.5 being normal, it's NOT optimal above 2.0). You need to see your number. Do not take their word for it that it is "nornal".

    Good luck , and how wonderful to have a new baby!
