    The problem is that the last time I had a proper meal was on Sunday and I haven't eaten since Sunday night. It's Friday now and I'm not even hungry, my normal resting heart rate is 92 because I'm a smoker but the last few days my resting heart rate is 60 and I've been smoking.

    I would suggest seeing a doctor ...perhaps your GP for a same day appointment?

    I think you need to see a doctor and probably soon. Since it's the weekend your best bet is to call 111 and see what they suggest. They can tell you the places to go when your surgery is closed.

    Not eating for this long will mess with your body, so it could be normal that your heartrate has changed given the current circumstances. You need to make sure that you do not get more unwell though becuse with no nutrition and a low heartrate you could faint and hurt yourself and obviously if you continue not eating you'll keep getting worse. You also need to work out why you aren't eating and get that sorted. It will help if you can think if you've noticed anything else odd and if you can explore a bit more why you aren't eating. Do you feel too full or sick to try? Do you not want to eat?
    That sort of info should help a doctor work out what's up.

    Anyway I would suggest you call 111 now and see what they advise. They may suggest you see somebody tonight or in the morning or call your surgery for an appointment on monday. Look out for things like feeling faint or dizzy and maybe have somebody keep an eye on you just in case you do start feeling worse.

    Good luck
