    You should also not be seeking medical advice from random dudes on an shooting internet forum.
    So what your blood pressure gets up to during exercise isn't important? The only real reason that I've been checking it soon after running is because I thought that it was important somehow.

    My blood pressure this morning was 118/64 with a heart rate of 51.

    And I don't rely on random internet dudes advice alone about this kind of stuff... I go to the doctor too. I just like to hear a wider range of opinions.

    They recommend waiting up to two hours after exercise until your heart rate returns to its resting rate. They say BP immediately following exercise can vary immensely between people.
    There are lots of things that could contribute to feeling odd after exercise, including blood oxygen, blood sugar, dehydration, etc.
    If you continue feeling poorly you should consider talking to a doctor.

    Thanks for the link.

    And I guess it's always been hit or miss on whether I'll feel good after a run or not.


    Edit: Anyways, here is another worrying quote from that same link. > "Diastolic blood pressure is a measure of the pressure in the blood vessels between heartbeats. It shouldn’t change significantly during exercise. If it does, consult your doctor."

    I might highlight that part of the article and bring it to my doctor on the next visit... Hopefully I'm not as good as dead.

    Well, you've certainly come to the right place...no shortage of opinions here. What could make more sense than getting medical advice on a gun forum?

    Not for resting blood pressure readings, no. If you're at the doctor doing a stress test because other symptoms indicate some type of blockage then yes.

    Talk to or see your doctor if you're concerned or feeling like their is an issue. Heart Disease is serious and should be taken seriously. If you're curious, hit up the internets, if you're serious talk to or see your doctor.

    Considering some of the docs I’ve met over the years coming here may not actually be a bad option

    I had an echocardiogram (not a stress echo) about two years ago that showed that I have a very slight left ventricular hypertrophy, but they didn't think enough of it to send me in for any other testing.

    I originally went in for sleeping issues, shortness of breath and chest pain (which is pretty random), and a very strange (pressure and tingling) feeling in the right side of my face, neck and eye. Plus I get a whooshing sound in my right ear from my heartbeat and some pretty bad brain fog... I never seem to to be able to concentrate very well on anything anymore, and I lack energy. I also get pitting edema along my shins by the end of the day. I only started experiencing these symptoms starting from about 2015/2016 all the way up until today.

    Anyways, I've talked with my doctor about all of that.

    Oh, and my doctor referred me to a pulmonary specialist and he put me on an inhaler, which seems to have helped with the shortness of breath. Also, they put me through an (at home) overnight sleep study, which lead to me having to go through an overnight stay at the hospital for a more thorough sleep study...They found that I experience a slight central sleep apnea. I've been testing out different masks on a sleep apnea machine for a few weeks now and hating every minute of it.
