That's great! How did you do it?
Not sure that my AT has improved at all. My HR is way less erratic these days though. For instance, a few years ago simply laughing shot it up to 132. Being out in the garden for a few minutes on a hot day sent it up to a frightening 176 once. I usually never felt it pounding -- just the wristband told me the actual numbers.
I wore the monitor for a while to re-gauge my activity levels, and I turned the alarm part off lest it drive me batty all day long. I would continue watching the numbers and curtailing my activity - just without the sound. That helped me adjust my expectations, and to learn to ask for help more often. It was good to have "proof" as to why I felt so crappy all the time.
Fast forward (hah hah... Like we even know what that is now, with our slow motion lives...), and I had stopped wearing the monitor daily because quite frankly the chest strap was uncomfortable after a few hours. Between pacing myself better, and probably my regimen of various supplements, (who knows which specific ones helped?) I seem to be doing much better with my HR being pretty stable.
For the past few years my resting HR was in the 70's, sometimes 60's even. Yet POTS would make it jump to the 90's or low 100's in the process of standing. Then it would come back down again, staying below the AT while active. (Active as we know being relative.... Brushing my teeth, showering, etc.)
However, I've been handling thyroid issues in the last few months - and if anything I'm starting to think that HR may be getting more erratic again. It would be worth wearing the gadget again to find out for sure.[/QUOTE]
