i just started smoking and my heart hurts afterwards , could it be an underlying Heart condition that the nicotine and increased heart rate are affecting
Hi Nicotine when smoked for the first time can by itself cause the symptoms that you have described. An underlying heart condition is not required for the same. I would advise you to refrain from smoking as it can only lead to harm. Best wishes.

Hi, Your father seems to be suffering from Sinus Bradycardia( heart rate <60/min).It might be due to various causes like Sick Sinus Syndrome, Secondary to use of drugs like Beta Blockers, thyriod disorders etc. I would advisce you to get him evaluated . A simple investigation like ECG can help aswell as drug history can help. Bradycardia can lead to dizziness or syncope.Hope it helps.
