I tried to give blood today. My iron level was perfect. My blood pressure was perfect. What wasn’t perfect? My heart rate. They took my pulse three different times. By the third time, it was actually getting faster, so I wasn’t allowed to donate.
I’m beginning to wonder if my heart rate is always faster than normal. While my doctor has never said anything about it, I remember when I was in high school we did an experiment in a science class about the different rates that everyone’s heart beat at. Mine was the highest in the whole class.
I’ll try again the next time, but if my heart rate is still too high, I might have to give up on this one.
