since last week , my friend just felt light headed and so weak and he had breathing problem
his hart rate went down to 50 and 45
he was diagnosed ,bradycardia( the electric part of the hard isn't working properly)
he is only 34 year old and we don't know how suddenly he became so ill
.is there any type of medication to bring his hart rate up to normal?
.is it possible that its just a kind of depression and it will go it self?

but is there any way to bring him back to normal?

Thanks for the query

I would like to know a few more details in order to help you

1. Was the breathing issue episodic? Did he recover spontaneously later?
2. Did he have chest pain?
3. Any history of cardiac illness in the family?
4. Is he on any medications? Please list them
5. It will be very helpful if you could take the picture of the ECG and attach it to me and also of the echo

Please get back to me, I am awaiting your reply
