I had some issues with it during my COVID fun. Thankfully just temporary it seems, but I'm still dealing with some post COVID issues.
I've always ridden with a heart strap, but I bought a Fitbit Charge 5 after my scare so it can monitor (records every 5 mins) my HR 24/7 and even has an ECG function. I turned off all the smart notification BS.
What's your guy's resting heart rates or how did they diagnose it?
Posting this because when I was in the hospital, on two occasions when the staff took my vitals they asked if my heart rate was always like that. Just said I have no clue. Been measuring it at home and it's always ~41min. My reading on the webz says that's low? And I've been feeling exhausted for a while now and sometimes short of breath just getting dressed or other basic things, which is frustrating.
Just something I might need to bring up to the doc I'm seeing about the brain stuff.
I was battling COVID at the time, so my resting was mid-60's at best. When I kept passing out it was dropping into the mid-30's.
After getting home and getting the Charge 5 I was able to watch my resting HR take ~5 weeks to drop back down to low 50's. Which is what I'd thought my resting HR was, but I'd never measured it to this extent before, 53 as I sit and type this.
41 would be elite athlete territory normally in my mind.
I used to have a heartrate like that when I was a bike messenger. At some point I fell and broke my wrist (ouch), they gave me some sedative in the ambulance, and when they hooked my up to the heartrate monitor alarms were going off.
I heard of then-collegues that hit the 30's, but they were triathletes, and that's a while different kind of crazy.
I was obese with a resting HR in the low 40s, nothing wrong with me at the time.
At peak fitness many many years ago I was down to 32 which was fine but I had to stand up slowly or I'd lose vision/balance and fall over.
I still have a ref to get a heart scan as my fam has a history of shit hearts and my O2 has occasionally dropped below 90% whilst awake which is weird.
I am a candidate for Watchmen. I have an appointment on the 6th to proceed. They have me scheduled for a bunch of tests. Lots of jabbing and stabbing I suspect. The Hospital food at PRMC is pretty awesome. So are the nurses and staff. I like it there. The amenities are awesome. Like a hotel. I hung out in Ocean City for a week before hand.
