Brief Answer:
Yes you should definitely go to Electrophysiology cardiologist.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
Thanks for choosing HealthcareMagic for your query,
Madam you have to visit a electrophysiologist who would conduct electrophysiological studies on you to find the cause of bradycardia.
Result of studies would decide whether to insert a pacemaker in you or not.Most likely you would need a pacemaker.
However it depends wherher problem is in sinoatrial node firing or in nodes and wire transferring impuse into heart.
You should visit and electrophysiologist before things get worse.Heart rate less then 30/min can even be fatal and may cause cardiac arrest.

Hope i was helpul.
Thanks!
