It is very very simple! Climb the stairs from ground floor to second floor with normal walk. If you feel, that you are uncomfortable with your breathing, you have to consult doctor/cordiologist for reducing your weight or for checking your heart! If you feel normal breathing without tiredness, you are perfectly having healthy heart! Cheers Raj R

How can you tell the difference between heart burn and heart problems ? I get what feels like heart burn sometimes. But I am worried it might be more. How can i tell if it is heart burn, or a heart problem ? They seem very similar with their symtpoms, so what symptoms help seperate them?

I have a low resting heart rate. I always have. I swim a half mile 4-5 times per week. I wore a Holter monitor and I was told my resting heart rate averaged 43-44. I am 68 and at a good weight for my height. I eat healthy. How can you tell if I would need a pacemaker or I am just healthy? I have no symptoms.
