157/105 pulse rate 48. 3 years ago I was diagnosed with HOC....My pulse has been running as low as 38,but normally stays around 48 to 50. I was at rest when taking bp however I was also experiencing tightness of chest,palpitations and shortness of breath.
Hi Sue Stanfield:
With you being symptomatic with your low pulse and elavated blood pressure it is best for you to be evaluated by your physician. He/She will be most familiar with your health history and be better able to diagnose what is going on.
