Just erased the original post as I thought this subject was probably better left between me and my GP, as Cappy and C.O. advised - so as not to lead anyone else up the path of enquiring about something potentially medical on here. I honestly didn't realise when I posted it, that it may have been more than just a gym thing. ;) If any mods feel they'd like to delete it that's fine. Sorry. :)

The first thing I would do is try a different heart rate monitor. Did you manually take your heart rate during your exercise?

I wouldn't trust those HRM's built into the machines. I have seen them very inaccurate. You probably should get something with a chest strap and also that records your HR over time. Then you will have a better idea what your HR is doing and can show a cardiologist or other health professional.

Consult a physician not just the forum. Be safe, keep pushin' hard :)
