I have my hypothyroidism under control with the medication, but my heart rate is very low. The last 3 years it has always been in the low 60's while resting. My blood pressure has always been around 100 over 70. I've been on levothyroxine for about 3 years now. However, lately my heart rate is 49 while resting and my blood pressure is 123 over 83. Does anyone on here have such a low heart rate? What does your dr. say? I am NOT in good shape. I NEVER exercise except chasing my 5 children around. I actually was on bed rest most of last year due to pregnancy. I ran up and down the stairs to try to get it to go up and it only went to 60. Anyone experienced this?

I went for a physical in the Navy when I was 27 years old - long time ago:) and the doc put Bradycardia down on the physical form. I was an Air Traffic Controller and the physical was an anual event to make sure I was medically qualified to do that job.
I asked him what it was, and he said I had a really low, under 60, resting heart rate. He didn't realy seem to care at all. I wasn't in shape either. Passed my physical and sent me on my way.
I've never been diagnosed with it since but I was hypothyroid back then and didn't know it.
I wouldn't worry too much about it, but I'm not a doctor so please take this as nothing more than comforting words. You should seek professional medical advice. Ok disclaimer over.
Is it possible you're still a bit Hypo? Maybe time to get a fresh TSH, FREE T4,FREE T3 test done. Do you feel pretty good otherwise?
You might just have a strong effecient ticker.
