I experience, Bradycardia, Low Heart Rate between 48-51, have been on Bystolic for a while, now my LPN recommended to go off and see if that raises BPM.
They did an EKG today and noticed no electrical issues.
What is next step, if going off Bystolic, does not raise BPM?

My resting heart rate is usually 55-65. It says on the internet that this could be a sign of Bradycardia. I am not overly concerned about this, I just wondered if a low resting heart rate could indicate fitness as well as a heart problem? I excercise for about 1-2 hours every day, and complete a 14 mile run once a week currently. (with shorter runs and bike rides in between) My BMI is 24.5 and falling.

My husband has been diagnosed with bradycardia and has a low heart rate lowest 39 and highest is 101...this was what was learned after he had to wear an ekg monitor for 48 hours.He is now scheduled to go for a cardiogram and then follow up with cardiologist afterward. I am wondering if you can tell me what are possible treatments for this?

I suffer from Bradycardia. This has been since 2004 when I underwent an Ablation for Tachycardia. My normal heartbeat is between 39/45. My blood pressure is slightly high - 157/80. I am 51, a non smoker and hardly ever take alcohol. I have been exercising 5 days a week for nearly a year now. I weigh 12 stone and am 5ft 9in. During exercise I feel short of breath until properly warmed up, but my recovery time is just around a few minutes or less. At rest I often get chest pains. I also take Ranitidine - 150mg once a-day, for Acid reflux. I have also noticed that I keep having reoccurring slight head aches when resting. I am worried that my Bradycardia is getting worse as my heart-rate is slowing down as time goes by. Can you offer me a diagnosis on this information?
