Below-normal Heart Rate?
Good afternoon. I’m josh, I’m 26 years old. I often eat instant oatmeal and fruits and vegetables these last 3 weeks and 4 days in 2 weeks I walk 30 minutes a day. at night I check my heart rate only gets 35 per minute and this morning after waking up I check my heart rate only 40 per minute whereas before my heart rate was in the range of 75-79 per minute and already this week I woke up briefly every day while sleeping after that sleep again. During this time I did not feel any disturbances in breathing, tightness in the chest, and feel tired. So far I have never had a medical test. What I want to ask is this normal? Thank you, doctor.
Hello. Thank you for the questions submitted to HealthReplies.com We can understand the concern you feel.
In general, the normal adult heart rate ranges from 60-100 times per minute. The condition where the heart rate is <60 beats / minute is called bradycardia. The determination of this condition cannot be based on a single examination. Periodic monitoring and other vital signs are needed in order to know the patient's health condition. In some people, bradycardia can occur without causing any symptoms / complaints. Bradycardia that requires evaluation and medical treatment is bradycardia that causes symptoms.
If there are no symptoms / complaints, you are advised to adopt a healthy lifestyle, both in terms of eating and physical activity. Immediately consult your doctor, heart and blood vessel specialist, or specialist in internal medicine if your heart rate slows down accompanied by symptoms / signs as follows:
Severe shortness of breath, especially when lying down Feet palpable cold and body increasingly weak Left chest pain that radiates to the left arm and jaw accompanied by cold sweat Decreased consciousness or impaired personal orientation, place, or time Blood pressure decreases (systolic blood pressure less than 100 mmHg ) Your doctor will probably do a cardiac record check and provide emergency treatment in the form of injectable drugs to improve the heart rate if you experience this emergency condition. The doctor may also consider using a pacemaker if the condition does not improve with medication.
