I have recently had a heart cath and have been put on metoprolol succinate to slow my heart rate. My blood pressure and cholesterol are fine, but a stress test and echocardiogram showed a weak heart and an irregular heart rhythm. My resting heart rate is 104-106, and I generally feel pretty lousy. I am wondering if it is safe to start walking?
It is normal for an adult resting heart rate to be between 60-100 beats per minute. Typically, the more fit you are the lower your heart rate, so it is important that you begin an exercise routine. However, you'll need to consult your physician to determine when it's safe for you to start walking.
