When I went to the doctor recently the nurse took my pulse and blood pressure standing and then had me lie down for 5 minutes and repeated both. Standing my blood pressure was normal, about 120/70, but my pulse was 52. My pulse was always in the upper 60's to low 70's. I don't think anyone had checked it in a while. After lying down for five minutes my blood pressure and pulse were both higher - weird. My blood pressure was still in the normal range and my pulse was up to 60. Does this have anything to do with fibro? I have checked my pulse off and on for the last week while sitting and it is always in the 50's. Thanks!
