Wore heart monitor 7 days my heart rate was as low as 49 as high as 150. Normal for me walking is in the 80s on my current meds. What can cause this?

In brief: Normal ranges...

Your monitor results sound normal.
There is a great deal of heart rate variability during a given 24 hour period. A range from 49 to 150 beats for minute would be expected for the range of activities (sleeping to mild exercise) a normal person does in one week.

In brief: Probably normal

If you recorded a full range of activities, including sleep and vigorous exercise, this range of pulse may be quite normal!
