I have had my pulse checked at a local market and they noticed my pulse was following a regular pattern of slowing down and then speeding up. The fastest rate was about 80 slowing over 10 - 15 seconds to 60 then speeding up over the next 10 - 15 seconds.

There is history of Heart Disease with my parents and I do drink a lot of coffee. (I know these are contributing factors). I am gennerally in good health but take little exercise.

Is my pulse any thing to worry about.
