Avatar m tn Is there a correlation there and will supplemental thyroid hormone amend the condition (bradycardia)? I am still easily fatigued and ironically, have more symptoms at rest rather than when I am up and about.
Avatar f tn Hi there, I am a Latino female about to turn 40, I was recently diagnosed with Sinus Bradycardia. I am not in good shape, I haven't exercise for a year. I am not overweight and don't have any other health problems.
Avatar f tn It means you have some instances of bradycardia. How significant it is depends on what you were doing at the time and your symptoms. For example was your instance of a 30 bpm heart rate during a period of vagal stimulation? Were you using the bathroom? Sleeping? Did you just stand up after sitting in a chair for a few hours? Then youd need to know, were you symptomatic at the time? How,did you feel? This is why accurate journal entries are important.
351404 tn?1299489130 I have been diagnosed with bradycardia and atrial fibrillation and will soon be given a dual chamber permanent pacemaker. I notice that in the doctor's reply it was said that a pacemaker didn't treat AF. This has confused me since my understanding of a pacemaker is that it gives you a regular sinus heartbeat and that arrhythmias would be a thing of the past. If it doesn't treat arrhythmia, then what use is it?
Avatar f tn they can do some simple tests on you to make sure your bradycardia is ok and does not need medication to control. If you are having bradycardia while exercising then the dr. would want to make sure it was not happening worse while you slept. Snd yes, low blood pressure does cause fatigue and dizziness. Good luck to you!
Avatar f tn Its difficult to answer your questions without knowing the general health, medical history, etc. Usually, aerobic exercise is benefical for the heart. A guideline for aerobic exercise is not exceed a pulse rate greater than 220-your age. You may want to reach a heart rate less than the recommended rate until you can comfortly have a heart rate of 144 without being out of breath with a 30 minute workout at least 3 times a week.
Avatar n tn I have sick sinus syndrome with afib. and bradycardia. I take flecainide 150mg twice a day. Any time that I need an antibiotics doctors, other than my cardiologist, struggle to find one that isn't countraindicated.
7465389 tn?1391024867 He is referring me to a cardiologist and an elecrophysiologist because I also had 9 hours 42 minutes of bradycardia, with the slowest single episode lasting 10 minutes with a minimum heart rate of 41. What scares me the most is that when I wore the monitor I only had one event where I actually could feel the palpitations while some days I have dozens of events I can feel. He said he could not put me on beta blockers because of the bradycardia.
Avatar m tn s are VERY mild this time around! I was really expecting to go to hell and back with this fentanyl withdrawal but so far it has been 10x easier than my oxy withdrawals I went through last year. Anyone have any theories why my w/d this time around has not been nearly as bad as last time? I have been dependent for about 4 months this time around, using mainly oxy/dilaudid/fentanyl but I havent had oxy in awhile mainly just fentanyl and dilaudid.
Avatar f tn I was told last May that I have a bradycardia and one day down the road I will need a pacemaker, I'm currently 37 years old, my question is today I have felt the skips in the heart beat more today and when I feel the heart beat after the break today it takes my breath away. Is this something I need to go to the ER about today or just follow up with my doctor.

Avatar m tn Lately, I have been having bradycardia issues, specifically in the evening time. My pulse is usually between 48 and 52 beats per minute... which is a bit low for me. I am taking the medicine for hypertension... but since heart disease runs in my family and fish oil has some pretty good evidence behind it, I thought I would take it 2. Any comments, suggestions?
Avatar m tn I recently have been having some bradycardia issues. My cardo order echo and stress test. Not sure what these results mean. Going to see him in a few days. Just wonder what questions I should be asking and if I should be concerned. I am a male 44 yrs old (218) and workout/cardio 5-6 times a week.
942410 tn?1274047074 Just off a 10 day stint with a heart monitor (24/7) with read outs sent to Doc. Told I have PAC's and Bradycardia. Wondering if a pacemaker is my only option. Anyone have similar experience? My past journey with Amiodarone makes me nervous about meds. I just want to be OK. not perfect just OK. I'm a 65 years young woman electrically cardioverted from Afib 8 months ago, now normal SR.
Avatar f tn I have acid reflux also and a mild mitral valve prolapse, but recently i was told i have a very mild bradycardia like 58 beats per minute only caught on ekg twice otherwise they are normal. I also have had some stabbing pains everynow and then in my chest, is this probably from the acid reflux or probably from the heart issues? I also notice on here that a lot of people with acid reflux have these other conditions as well is that a coincedence?
Avatar f tn I have done every test on the book and I am fine but I have bradycardia 55-50 most of the time while I am sitting. It speeds up when I am standing. The thing is that I don't do any training since 3 years. I was very active until I turned 21 . I did cardio training 3-4 times a week. So my question is ... Is my bradycardia normal? Am I at risk of getting a worse (symptomatic) bradycardia? I never smoked, I never did drugs, I rarely drink alcohol. I weight around 154 lbs and I'm around 5.
1279189 tn?1275244868 No, with fentanyl on board you will have no withdrawal symptoms from the vicodin. However, it takes two or three days for the fentanyl to reach a steady dosage in your bloodstream, so you may need to overlap with the vicodin a bit as your body gets used to the change. You will not get a "buzz" or as you put it, increased spike in energy from fentanyl that you experience with vicodin.
Avatar f tn Then a couple friends showed up and gave me a few fentanyl pills. The subs blocked most of that but I feel ok. I have to work again in 8 hrs. I have about 6 more pills of fentanyl. I know if I use them I'll get through work but I don't want to start a fentanyl addiction.i was wondering if I take subs instead if I'll just get sick again or if they'll help now. I need to work or I'll lose my car. That's the only reason I'm considering taking the fentanyl tomorrow.
1390687 tn?1281157239 How much of each were you on and for how long? The fentanyl withdrawal will probably be the worst... I had the roughest time with the fentanyl... and no withdrawals from the percocet/oxycodone... it all depends on the person and amount and how long the person has been using,.. good luck.
Avatar m tn Yes but not morbidly and I stay pretty active, had problems with asthma when I was younger, lately shortnes of breath has been an issue more than normal but I also suffer and am currently being treated for imsomnia and anxiety attacks
Avatar f tn With a diagnosis of P.O.T.S. and if the fainting happened with standing, as can happen to some with P.O.T.S., then it is unlikely you will pass out while sitting in a car, because standing intolerance is how your body is manifesting the dysfunction of your autonomic nervous system. I'm glad your echocardiogram was fine. Did you get any event holter monitoring done or just resting EKG/ECGs as far as taking a look at your heart rhythm goes?
1285110 tn?1420147378 When he has a dizzy spell it is always followed with a headache... and tiredness.. glazed over eyes and poor concentration and verbal response. He becomes tired (a usual night for David is 3 hours sleep out of 24) sleeping in the day has been unheard of since before he became a toddler. Today it was found his heart rate is very low.44-54 beats per minute..
