Hi,

Thanks for the query.

It is normal to have bradycardia and few ectopics in highly trained athelets and at your age. If you no symptoms I don’t see any reason to be worried.

In case if there are any other concerns or giddiness than you can have echocardiography done through a competent cardiologist to check you left ventricular function. If the test comes normal, then there are no issues at all.

Hope this answers your query. If you have any doubts/clarification now, feel free to post your response. I will be glad to assist you further. Do accept the answer if you do not have any further queries.

Regards

Hi and thanks again,

I understand the injuries sustained have been bothering you. But clinically these would not influence heart and would not make any difference to cardiac discussion.

These “inflammation” would not be a cause of bradycardia.

Hope this is clear to you. Yet should you have any other doubts, I will be glad to help you. Do accept the answer if you do not have any other queries.

Best Regards
