Hi Adnar,

36 bpm is very low. 

Have you had other diagnostic tests?  Is your heart in good condition, physically?  It can be an electrical or conduction problem.

What does your cardiac specialist suggest?  Sometimes medications can be used.  If that is not an option then a pacemaker may be recommended.

There is not enough information to give you a recommendation.  A thorough cardiac workup is required.

I did all diagnostic tests(HAEMATOLOGY,,,,BIOCHEMICAL ,,IMMUNOLOGY,,,CHEST X-RAY,,URINE TEST,,,ECO),,,and all tests were good.

.....I feel much better now,,,,,,yesterday I measured my heartbeat and all time I found my beat with in 70-80,,,,,,but today afternoon I've got this symptom again(breath problem, fatigue) . That time my heart beat was 52

My cardiac specialist has a confusion about my age (25) , He gave me another cardiac specialist's address . Because pacemaker is not easy matter for my age.

Hi Adnar,

I would strongly recommend you see the other specialist, soon. A pacemaker would not be my first choice unless there was no alternative.

Did you have a cardiac conduction test? Sometimes called EPS?

Keep us posted.

Adnar,

I strongly recommend it the test.

I don't think your work has contributed to this problem.

In many cases the low heart rate CAN indicate that there is a problem with the electrical system of the heart. The heart, like all muscles, runs off of electricity. It has it's own natural "pacemaker", the SA (sinoatrial) node that starts the heart beating.

I believe what you have is called a cardiac or heart block. It's not a blockage of blood, it's a disorder in the electrical conduction of the heart. If the normal pacemaker (SA node) isn't working, the AV (atrioventricular) node can trigger the heartbeat, but it is slower than normal, about 40-60 bpm.


I specifically think you have a sinoatrial block.


Hope it helps.

If your doctor is saying you have bradycardia without looking for a cause, he's not doing his job.

The symptoms you have also indicate a cardiac block which would cause bradycardia.

Get another opinion please!

I have done all of my test and he did'nt find any symptom of heart block . My doctor only has found low(brady) and high(tracy) beat from the holter test..............He did'nt say that it is only sinus bradycardia but he said about pacemaker and gave me address of another doctor for getting better advice .

thanks dear for your kind information , but I want to know about pacemaker . Is it painful?

It should not be painful. It may be uncomfortable however, at least until you get used to it.

It is implanted under the skin so there will be a small lump.

You should be able to do your hard exercises. It may be uncomfortable with the lump but you'll get used to it.

The new units are much smaller than older ones.
