Low Resting Hr
If you have a low resting hr in 45-55 due to good fitness would'nt your hr also be low during avtivity and not react extreme to everything?
When hr goes down to 39 in sleep, is it dangerous? when is a low hr a problem? why dont u want people taking beta when they have low resting hr?
39 with sleep: All people have slow HR during sleep. 39 during sleep is harmless and not unusual. Pauses in the heart rate of >5 seconds generally require a pacemaker. Pauses in the HR that cause people to pass out (or nearly pass out) also require a pacemaker. HRs in the 30s during sleep never cause symptoms and don't require treatment. ...Read more
Why dont u give metoprolol if u have hr under 60? i have low resting hr but a nervsyst. that makes hr and bloodpressure react EXTREME with actvity!!!
If u have a low resting hr but need metoprolol 25 mg, can the heart stop after just 25 mg? With meds having hr in 40-60 without symptoms? I feel fine
If u already have low resting hr but need to take metoprolol 25 mg, is it fine as long as u dont have symptoms? Wil the heart stop? My doc said its ok
Yes: It is ok to take it as long as you don't develop symptoms. Your heart will not stop because of metoprolol. Symptoms you should be cautious about are lightheadedness, dizziness and fainting. Also 25 mg of metoprolol is a low dose and shouldn't cause you any problems. Always follow-up with your dr. ...Read more
Had ECG for low resting HR 3 months ago, normal result. Today HR was 39 on waking. Exercise 1x/week - 20min jog. I eat healthy, BMI 22. Is it normal?
Low resting HR: The best answer is perhaps, assuming that the EKG is otherwise normal, then can keep track of your heart rate. It is not uncommon for your heart rate to be lower when you wake up. As long as it increases during the day and with activity, then it is likely ok. You can check it when you are exercising to see if you are in the training zone. ...Read more

I have normally low HR at rest (55 to 65) Im not athletic.Since yesterday my HR at rest is 105 to 120.what should that mean?4days before EKG ok.Txs
Hi Oskar: Something's up. If your HR remains >100, an EKG should be done to confirm normal mechanism. If nl, then a search for non-cardiac causes is indicated: fever, pain, anxiety, infection, hemorrhage, stress, dehydration, etc. If your HR has returned to normal, I wouldn't pursue it. ...Read more

I'm a 32yo female who works out 6 days/week., however not an elite athlete. My resting HR is 40. Is that too low?
Only if you've sympt: Though you aren't an elite athlete, exercising 6x per week, religiously, is impressive. Does each session last 30+ min? I suspect you are fit but only an exam will confirm that. If you are fit, a HR of 40 is not unusual. Unless you are passing out, having trouble with vision or balance, or other symptom from the low heart rate, I'd say it's not too low. Talk to ur doctor, though, who knows yu best ...Read more
My resting hr is 85-95. When I do 5 min of low impact zumba my hr goes to 175+ & i feel faint im 28 & 458lbs what should my max hr be when exercising?
Evaluation: Exercise is great way to start loosing weight, but considering your possible lack of endurance you need to approach it slowly, preferably under supervision of personal trainer or at least guidance. Complements on your effort, please see you doctor to rule out underlining heart problems. With time your heart rate will adjust, you need more endurance. Do it safe. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

My resting HR at night when laying in bed is 54! Is that to low? I eat very healthy. I dont exercise , but im always on my feet & I use stairs @ work
Low rest heart rate: You are fairly young and a resting heart rate of 54 is not necessarily abnormal even though it is lower than the usual 60-80 range. If your energy level is otherwise Ok and you have no other complaints it may mean nothing. Heart rate does drop with sleep and it could also be a remote sign of sleep apnea ...Read more
