Inview of you past history, what exactly is the cause.
I shall explain it to you in detail.
Normally when one sleeps the metabolic rate will reduce that may reduce the heart rate too.
This is normal and can occur in all.
This is a normal physiological response and is not of a major concern.
However occasionally paraoxysmal heartrate changes can occur to if there is a past heart problems.
Doctor : There can be a psychogenic component too, as have adhd too.
Hence you may have to see a cardiologist for evaluation.
