Thanks, Crazy Horse-I called my doc today and she said exactly what you were told in the hospital. I jog regularly and so my pulse is about 44-48, and the doc said that she would suggest a beta blocker for occasional use as the only thing that would work under stress, but she didn't want my pulse any lower. Her suggestion was that if it bothered me, to take some Xanax before appointments, but that I wasn't doing any damage to myself.
I appreciate the info since I was really freaked, as you are about anything when you have just had a period of panic, esp. when the dopey nurse said, "I've never seen such a high bp!!". That didn't help.:>}Thanks again.
