Back ache, shoulder blade pain, heart racing, breathlessness, dizziness, twinges, panicked. Why?

I went 2doctors for a dull ache in my back just under the shoulder blade and he came across my heart rate being 36bpm. I'm waiting for appointments at hospital as I have no symptoms of breathlessness or dizzyness but have been advised not to drive. But last night a felt a bit wooosey but did go away. I have also noticed I do have twinges I only notice when I sit and feel for them, if I'm busy I don't notice them. I'm not sure if I am just putting my self in to panic mode because they have told me I have a slow heart rate or if I am to take what I'm feeling seriously.

You must visit emergency in a hospital with coronary care intensive unit. It could be some form of heart block and might be evaluated with EKG, Echo cardiogram and you may require pacing by either drugs or pacemaker if your cardiologist considers after investigations.Just count your pulse every half hourly and if it remains low go earliest to ICU
