See a good cardiologist and have the doc perform MRI and other tests. Irregular heart beats indicates arrhythmia. The fainting and/or dizziness (if any) is related to low blood pressure.

My husband is 63 years old and has been have fainting like spells for over a year. It was just determined 4 days ago that it was due to the medicine Bystolic they caused his heart rate to drop to 50 and below when he walks 10 to 15 feet. it looks like he is have a seizer. Which is not his heart is not pumping enough blood to the brain. To day his heart rate is standing at 48 when walking and now dropping any more. He just had a facular put in his arm for dialyze September 08, 2016. He was told today that he needs a Pacemaker. I feel they should wait a couple more days to see if his heart rate continues to go up and hold. I am not sure his body is stronger enough to have the surgery. Am I on track with my feeling.

Hi, I have a rushing sensation in my chest, that makes my heart race, I feel i cant catch my breath, shake, feel disorientated, can have disturbed vision in the form of flashing. After it passes I feel cold, can suffer slight shakes and am told I go white as a sheet, it can also cause me some distress as I feel very overwhelmed when it happens. I have also fainted once whilst experiencing this. I am due to see my doctor but not for a week. Any ideas, questions I should ask etc. Thank you.

I'm 33 years old with low blood pressure every time I get it checked. The low blood pressure has been going on for years. I just thought I normally have low blood pressure. It was 92/50 las time it was checked. I am 5'2" 165lbs. I gained 15lbs with my pregnancy. My delivery lasted 33 hours and was very stressful. I have loridosis, back pain, heat sensations in my left leg, chest pain and shortness of breath. I just recently went to get checked out by the doctor about dizzy spells and my heart stopping and rapidly starting back. I was diagnosed with RBBB. I'm really scared, because I can feel that my heart is not working like it should. I have a lot of stress with family matters and I would say since I was 13 I've had ongoing high anxiety. I know that is not healthy. What would you say are the reasons that I have RBBB.
