This is unheard of is it not? I have a morning pulse of about 58-60-ish but it hardly ever gets that low during waking hrs. Does anyone have a pulse this low regularly?

That is pretty normal for sleeping pulse/waking up pulse. It can even be in the 40s and be OK. Naturally the heart beats faster during the waking active hours. I work in a hospital and frequently see people with pulses like this who are resting or sleeping and it's OK as long as they don't feel like they're going to faint or such.

I myself have a pulse in the low 50s-60s when I first wake up or before I fall asleep, and then in sleep my pulse hovers around 46 and my cardiologist is not concerned.

That's fine unless you're having any symptoms.
Quit taking it

Thanks. I know but I saw cardiologist yesterday & he said for 51 yrs old I'm great. But I've become OCD w/ this issue now that studies link higher pulse w/ early death. Also, my daily moving around pulse is about 70s-90s unless working out & then it hits the 120s-140s top end for a few mins here & there.

But your mornong pulse is 60- perfectly normal.
70-90 is OK
When you do a cardio-vascular workout your heart rate is supposed to increase- you're excercising your heart
If I remember correctly you aim for a heart rate no higher than double your normal rate.
The important thing is your recovery heart rate.
One way to determine if you are reaping the benefits from exercise is to calculate your Recovery Heart Rate, a measure of how quickly you return to your resting heart rate after a workout. To calculate your recovery heart rate:
  1. Take your pulse ten seconds immediately after you have finished exercising. Write down the number.
  2. One minute later, take your pulse again and write it down.
  3. Subtract the number for the second pulse check from the number for the first pulse check. This number is your Recovery Heart Rate. The greater the number, the better shape you are in!
Hope this helps
