Do decreased heart rate, mild headaches and mild pain in the heart need immediate medical attention?

Hi, I am concerned with my heart rhythm when I am sleeping. My heart rate slows so much I have a hard time getting a pulse. It is definitely erratic and I am afraid it will stop beating altogether. Also, I have a mild headaches in the mornings when I get up and mild pain in my heart.

I would like to tell you that generally, our heart rate gets slower during sleeping hours but it’s recommended for you to get an ECG and A Holter Analysis done just to monitor minimum heart rate or cardiac block, and consult a physician with reports for further management.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
