    It’s actually all interesting stuff and must mean something. But trying to sit down with a GP for long enough to look into it thoroughly just seems unlikely.

    I had a 72 hour ECG last year looking for A-Fib. No A-Fib at all, but ectopics. It showed that over those 3 days my ectopics were 2.6% of all beats. They don't worry until it reaches 20% apparently.

    The reason I get them is because of AFib, which is caused by a COPD, not T2 or cholesterol.

    Well. I checked my blood pressure meter against the one in the local pharmacy and they were pretty close, especially on the heart rate.

    Hi resting heart rate in the 50`s is OK but can be a problem if lower than 50, you didn’t say if you are on any blood pressure medicine, especially a beta blocker that works by slowing your heart rate.

    My resting heart rate is always in the 50`s and I am 68 years old

    Have you read up about these drugs to see if they can cause a lower heart rate?

    No I haven’t. It’s probably a good idea. It did cross my mind today. But hadn’t previously considered anything like that. I won’t be seeing anyone from my GP practice for about 10 days so will also ask them.

    Brian in Blackpool has certainly got me wondering. Though what I take in the way of medication are not beta blockers.

    Later. There is nothing to suggest either of the two meds do slow the heart rate.

    coincidental maybe...BUT

    i started Gym a few weeks back
    graduated to weights room... liked it.

    Always had a weights bench @ weights lurking in cupboard..lifted back in the day
    so dug it out popped the weights on and use most nights.
    ( 20kg + bar weight ...just about does me at moment...for the moment ..lol)

    but i notice from my tracker, that resting heart rate is now in low to mid 50's.. so some things improved it
    either way, a happy chappie..
