I'm having such a problem with being so so tired lately, I have started to wonder if the culprit may actually be the lower heart rate. Several times at work when we have not been busy I have found myself feeling as if I could simply fall asleep. I slipped my finger into the pulse ox and found my rate was 41 and 40. I noted that at 54 and 60 I felt much more alert and awake.
So I asked another Cardiologist today. he looked at my much passed around EKG asked my age and then said, I think i'll like to run you on a treadmill.
I have no money, so I was like, sorry can;t do it, my insurance is not that good. So he has agreed to not dictate an official report, but to simply run me on the mill and run some strips.
I hope this will finally get me over my worry about my heart. I know its fine, but yet there is some little question still.
I'll be getting him something nice and fun as a thank you, and cookies for the tech.
I have to wonder too how much of this is simply because I have all this technology here at work! If I didnt check my BP a few times a week, I would have never noted this alarming heart rate and I;d still be blissfully unaware.
