User:today my systolic pressure was 99 and my diastolic pressure was 95. I was in a cold pool and had a warm to hot shower as well, so my periferal BP was lowered. Napped for 3 hours after lunch. Feeling slow and weak right now. Have had atrial fibrulation in the last year. Currently on beta blockers and the heart speed is slower and the rhythm is still irregular 7% OF THE TIME. Wondering if I should go to sleep?
