I Have An Erratic Heart Rate
I took my mother into hospital this morning and while they did her stats, for a laugh they put the `peg` on my finger. Then their faces changed as my heart rate went from 80 - 120 then backwards and forwards and then they advised me to mention it to my doctor on my next visit. Do you think I need to? Thanks for you help.
I'm sorry, this is not really our topic area. However, a place to start would be taking your own pulse. Then, I would encourage you to see your physician if you have any questions or concerns.
