... Rocking the house.... always.
Usually my resting pulse in the morning will range from 61-64. In the afternoon it is about the same & it is steady. When they did my 2nd EKG my heart rate was 69.
I just feel that with my "improved" lifestyle & lack of drinking+, my heart rate & my B/P has dropped. It is normal to be on a beta-blocker & for it to lower your heart rate. 6... (8 replies)
... I have been checking my B/P about 11-15 times a month at different times for 21 months now. I have had about the same average of 116/66 for months now. What is the point in checking it all of the time? It's the same arguement that I have when my doc. wants to see me in 4 months for a B/P check. I can do that myself. After 21 months of monitoring I think that it is enough. It... (0 replies)

... Like I said before, I have the same thing as you. High B/P caused by anxiety. They could prescribe Toprol, Lotrel, Atenolol, Altace.... whatever, but once I go to the doc. my B/P goes up. Once I went on Xanax my B/P averaged 126/76 last year. One year later & I average 116/66.
Don't get hooked on it. You will need more MGS in time. I know through experience. I am already... (9 replies)
