can't do exercise due to elevated pulse rate at rest. Been on chemo since March.....symptons continue to change of course. Last week mentioned to Dr. concern with high at rest pulse rate, making it not possible for me to do exercise. When at full rest I range 86-124. The slightest activity raises it....just wiping down a table top brings it up. BP is within normal ranges. Dr. said it is a side effect from one of the chemo drugs (on ACT)....and when/if the rate is 100+ consistantly he will then give me beta blockers. Anyone else have this issue? I really wanted to start doing some strength enercises since I am feeling weak and getting fatter by the day!
