Question: Hello. I have been under going a series of tests due to Bradycardia with consistently lowering Heart rate over the last 4 years. I am now at a resting heartrate of 41bpm. I am a 49 year old female and I am curious if there is any indication of an underlying cause such as Mobitz and how that is determined. I have had several incidents including syncope, lightheadedness, dizziness, etc....
Here is my ECG Results:
Vent Rate: 41BPM
RR Interval: 1445 ms
PR Interval: 164 ms
QRS Duration: 94 ms
QT Interval: 423 ms
QT Dispersion: 24 ms
P-R-T Axis: 6 degrees 10 degrees 18 degrees
I realize all of this information is speculative and only provides an overview but if you could possibly shed some insight and perhaps some suggestions for how I should consider proceeding to get a cause and solution, I would appreciate it greatly.

Brief Answer:
Some more specific tests

Detailed Answer:
Hello and welcome to HCM. Thank you for your question. I understand your concern.

The reading from your electrocardiographic study are all within the normal range. The normal heart rate, standardized in the worldwide population, is 60 - 100 beats per minute. However, there are certain periods of the day, for example during evenings and sleep, when there is a domination of the vagal tone, and the heart beat may drop down to 45-48 beats per minute. Also, there is a characteristic in people who were highly trained or athletes formerly, who have a resting heart rate aroung 45-50 beats per minute.

The Mobitz conduction abnormalities are easy to detect, since they appear in the electrocardiogram, which, in your case is not. However, although I can see you have worn a monitor and nothing was showed, I would recommend you to wear a 24 or 48 hour Holter rhythm monitor to see what happens to the electrical and conduction systems of the heart, when you suffer from such symptoms. And, if none of the symptoms appear while you are wearing the monitor, then there are more specific monitoring device, some of which also have a manual switch, whereby the registering can be started when one is having the symptoms. Depending on the results of the long-duration monitoring, then further tests or treatment may be required.

I hope I was helpful with my answer. I am happy to help, if you have any follow-up questions.

Best regards,
Dr. Meriton

I am a 31 year old female. I have been experiencing dizziness, lightheadedness, and nausea for the last 4 days. Today I noticed a lump on my lower rib right below my left breast. I am a generally healthy person. I went to the ER thinking the worst...they said it was fatty tissue. How does fatty tissue just show up in a day?

So I have had some swelling for a few days now in my ankles. It goes through waves in term of pain and varies from tolerable pain to excruciating pain. The pain seems to come from my ankles and near my hips, making moving almost impossible. The past two days I have developed red lumps, the size of large mosquito bites. They did not hurt at first but today, they are hard and painful. I have not been outside or near anything that could contain bugs that could do harm and ultimately, bite me. I did recently come back from a visit to the midwest and back that was 10 hours each way. I have been to two doctors, in which they took blood and did an ultra sound but I have only received news from one doctor that my blood work is normal (Kidney, Liver, Glucose levels). They did indicate that I did have a slightly higher-then-usual blood pressure which may be an indicator or may be due to my stress and anxiety from this entire situation. I also have been having moments where my ears have been ringing along with lightheadedness. I don t know what it is but I am wondering if its allergy related. Any insight would be fantastic!

Hi, I am on my third day taking Duromine ( Phentermine ) 30mg and I have been experiencing some of the common symptoms associated with taking this eg headache , lightheadedness , dry mouth however I have had ZERO reduction in appetite! I am starving constantly and stopping myself from eating but I have massive hunger pains every 2 hours or so. I am drinking over 2litres of water a day but even this isn t keeping me full. I am currently menstrating and wondering whether this is why I am hungry? Could my appetite be increased because of this and this is why they are not working or should I go back to my gp to get a 40mg prescription? Everyone else on duromine has to force themselves to eat and even forget to eat because they have such little appetite and I m the complete opposite and starving! I m very confused!
