What causes fluctuating BP and low heart rate?
Some excluding tests
Hello. Welcome to HCM and thank you for your question. I understand your concern.
Normal blood pressure figures standardized to the population worldwide are: systolic 100-139 mmHg and diastolic 60-89 mmHg. Blood pressure can hit high and low points due to various physiological states: vigorous physical activity, psychological stress, caffeine-containing beverages, hormonal changes that normally happen during a day etc. Therefore, I would recommend you to measure your blood pressure after you have been at least 15 minutes in resting state and psychologically calm, because, as I mentioned above, various factors can "fakely" raise the blood pressure. If this is a worrisome episode to you, then you can be put on a 24-hour blood pressure monitor, a test which will periodically, automatically measure your blood pressure throughout a day, and provide the mos accurate trends of your blood pressure.
Mostly the same with the heart rate. It ia normal when 60-100 per minute. It is accepted down to 45-48 per minute in normal people, when deeply resting (for example, during sleep). In highly trained athletes it is almos always physiologically low due to constant physical activity. So, no worries about this matter.
I hope I was helpful with my answer. I am happy to help, if you have followup questions. Please rate the answer, if you do not. Wish you a good health.
