Concern

Hello all, I just wanted to come on here and see if anyone else has had a similar experience to mine. So I recently noticed a big change in my heart rate/rythm. In the past, I would feel a big rushing/pounding sensation everytime i got up too quickly, walked up a flight of stairs, or walked up a steep hill. The sensation was essentially my blood pressure and heart rate increasing significantly, and with that came an intense pressue in my neck and chest. It would eventually fade as my hr went down. I normally expect the sensation to come when doing said activites, but over the past week I haven't felt it anymore. In fact I feel I can't sence my heart racing at all, even if im at 120 walking fast, or light jogging. My heart rate has also been quite low, in the 60-50s. I'm not sure if there is something to be concerned about, or if this is just how I am supposed to feel.

Improving

As long as your beats per minute are stable abd you are feeling well, it sounds like an improvement!  This is how you're supposed to feel.

It certianly is, well I dont even have a word to describe it but, just odd I supposed. Not having to worry as much about my heart after having such severe and consistant anxiety over it, becuase it is acually for the most part doing what it's supposed to.

Hi Vtl3, 

Interested in how you knew this (bold type below). Did you measure or were you told by your techs / doctor?

' I would feel a big rushing/pounding sensation everytime i got up too quickly, walked up a flight of stairs, or walked up a steep hill. The sensation was essentially my blood pressure and heart rate increasing significantly, and with that came an intense pressue in my neck and chest. '

Has something happened in the last week or previously which may have affected the settings on your device or your health condition?  e.g. have your activity levels changed (does your PM adjust for this) or has something which happened previously taken time to settle down? 

What ever the cause, the result sounds positive.
