Does anyone notice an increase in their sleeping heart rate? I relapsed a few months back (after being 90-95% well and off meds for 5 years.) and a strange symptom has been my sleeping heart rate has gone from the high 50s/low 60s to mid 70s/mid 80s.

I’ve dealt with POTS symptoms before my remission and they have returned a bit but while a beta blocker will help my HR when exercising it has zero effect on my sleeping HR. I’ve tried adding more magnesium with minimal success.

All of this mess started after I caught a cold Iin September. My sleeeping HR slowly crept up, then my POTS symptoms crept back and when I stared the mepron/zith my symptoms exploded and the night sweats/headaches/vertigo/fatigue/sore muscles all came back with a vengeance. Colds have ALWAYS made my pots and vertigo symptoms flare in the past but never made other symptoms flare.

I’m on week 10 of mepron/Zithromax/ceftin....the night sweats and daily fevers are better and my HR while exercising is getting slightly better so Ive kicked my beta blocker, but this sleeping HR won’t budge! I feel like I’m never rested!

Has anyone had a strange rise in HR that beta blockers won’t touch?

Relapses are the worst mentally! 😡

hi sorry you are going though this
just curious are you taking your heart rate or do you have a monitor?
thinking that you might want to get a heart monitor stuck to your chest and see if there is anything else going on that you want to know about since lyme can do a number on the heart. this way you can get a clear pitcher of what heart rate is over a long period with out you having to check it. I just noticed how long ago you posted this hope you are feeling better by now.
