Hi, Coleen,
I have not noticed heart issues, have normal EKG’s, checkups, etc., I do use Oxygen as needed for COPD type symptoms, but the last three days when I check with my Oximater I have noticed my pulse to be hanging between 45 to 55, this concerned me so I called my heart Dr., spoke to his nurse, she told me as long as I was not feeling dizzy, having chest discomfort or passing out there was no reason to be concerned. I just feel uncomfortable thinking my pulse is that low. BP is setting around 125 over 65. Just curious what your feelings or others are. Should I be rushing to ER?

@bill5 Hi Bill I thought I would add to the others that is probably not a problem unless you have other symptoms to go with it.
My Wife who is pretty active and walks a lot sees hers go down that low too once in a while. Actually for her(she is 70) its abnormal to be above 70 ish. The BP sound right on textbook and with normal EKG I wouldn't rush to the ER either.
Have a Blessed Day
