High pulse rate while running, sudden drop in pulse rate, dizziness. Causes for symptoms?
Hi, I am 67.Have been running for years betwiin 6-10 miles 4 times a week at about 6 mph. When running my HB is 132-140 per minute. In the last 3 months it happened,sometimes,that my HB dropped suddenly to 118-124 and at the same time I feel dizzy(like going to faint) and I have to stop running and continiue walking for a while and run again.Any idea why this could happen? Thank you
Exercise induced drop in pulse rate nd possibly BP as well going by your symptoms is not good sign and usually represents high likelihood of coronary artery disease. Please get medical tmt done at the earliest.
