Doctor told me to monitor blood pressure and pulse rate a few times a day and keep a log. Found some strange things. Mornings after I am up and around, but not really working at anything the BP is ok hovers around 138 / 76 with a pulse in the upper 50's. Around noon, I usually sit and watch the news and weather. I measure at the end of the news before I go back to working. BP then hovers around 150/80 and pulse hovers around 50. (yeah, sometimes in the upper 40's. ) Late afternoon the BP reaches it's height, hovers in upper 150's/80 and pulse is up to upper 60's. Now I am told the pulse rate is too low and something may need to be done about it. Here all this time, I thought a low pulse rate (above zero of course) was a good thing.
