Question: I have been told I have sinus bradycardia and am having symptoms of light headedness, fatigue, confusion, heart palpitations, pulse between 40 and 50 for 5 days. Should I go see my doctor or jusr see if it passes. Why would it get worse as I have know of the sinus bradycardia for 5 months?

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

Detailed Answer:
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.

Dear Doctor,

I think I have autonomic nueropathy, but I don't know how to check if I do. I am having trouble swallowing, have suffered from GERD and sinus node tachycardia which stopped re occuring after recovery with beta blockers and medication. I am now suffering from a very STRONG sensation of PAIN when I swallow, and I am wondering if all of these things are just the symptoms of a sort of nuerophathy. What kind of test should I get from the neurologist?

Hi,I am 35 old femele,12-lead EKG confirms sinus tachycardia at a rate of just over 100 beats per minute,with normal PR interval,normal axis and incomplete right bundle branch block ,but no other abnormality of note. Echocardiogram undertaken by private doctor,which was said to show some septal hipokinesia and slightly reduced ejection fraction(EF 50%).My symptom: palpitations were of rather sudden onset,breathlessness associated with some slightly non-descript chest pain.What that mean?
