Posted on Tue, 12 May 2015
Question: Hello, I'm worried about the results of my EKG. I have also been having a lot of dizzy spells, and no appetite for a few weeks now, My results are
Ventricular rate 58 bpm
Atrial 58
P-R Interval 148ms
QRS Duration. 82 ms
QT Interval. 420 ms
OTC (bezet) 412 ms
P axis. 63
r axis 28
t axis 55
In the past I had always been told I had a high heart rate, now I wonder if it being low could mean it's losing its efficiency. Please advise your honest opinion as I have a disabled child and need to know what is what for his sake as well, thank you so much ~

Brief Answer:
It depends whether you have dizziness during physical activity

Detailed Answer:
Dear Mrs,

For checking whether your complaints are associated with bradycardia or not we can try something.
1. You should pay attention whether you have dizziness during physical activities
2. Try to do some physical activity and check your pulse before, during and after it If your heart rate increases more than 75-80 bpm during physical activity, then everything is ok and your complaints are not associated with slow heart rate.
If it doesn't increase or increases with 10 bpm or less, and you have dizziness during physical activity, then your complaints may be associated with slow heart rate. In this case I would advise you to see your doctor once more.

Hope I could help you

Wishing you good health

Thank you, I will try that. I should also mention that this began about three weeks ago and included shortness of breath, nausea, and anxiety/stress, all of which are still present. Can you tell me why a heart rate, which has always been high, would suddenly be low? It was also at this time that I began having an extreme resistance to insulin. In the meantime my dizzy spells and have occurred around the house, I will try what you say on a treadmill~

Brief Answer:
Welcome back

Detailed Answer:
Dear Mrs,

Your complaints can be connected also with your anxiety.
Heart rate of 58 bpm is not abnormal, but if you always had high heart rates, there are many reasons, that can lead to decrease in heart rate. It can be metabolic, can be as a result of electrolyte disbalance, thyroid problems, anxiety etc.
