Hey, for a guy, is it too low if his heart beat is 48 bpm? He s been constantly dizzy and couldn t see for a couple of minutes (like complete blackness). He thinks the dizziness has to do with his migraines. He s constantly shaking. I m scared if there s something wrong...48bpm is too slow right? (he not athletic..well, not really...not recently anyway) And what are things (beside medications) that can help bring your heartbeat up? Like, are there types of food that could help..maybe? any advice is welcomed =) thanks... Additional Info: his blood pressure is QUITE high...i m not sure what it is, but it really really high (or so he says) sorry i didn t mention this before...^^

Hello, I am taking Flecainide 50 mg twice daily for a month. I was having dizziness for a few months. After ruling many things out, we found that I am having too many heart beats. The doctor thought once we slowed the beats down, I would not be dizzy. I have still had dizziness. It felt like it was leveling out a bit, but now it is bothering me again. They told me to make another appointment which is over a month away. I can t believe the doctor said not to take it if it bothers me. I would be afraid to stop taking it since it has slowed the rapid beats down. Do you think it might help if I cut them in half taking 25 mg. twice daily? I also take klonopin 0.5 mg. daily and hydroxyzine which I only started when I was dizzy months ago. I am tired of being dizzy. For 20 years the klonopin has kept me in check.

Hello, my wife was recently diagnosed with a glomus vagale, paraganglioma in the vagus nerve on the right side of her neck. She had experienced a momentary blindness while driving and was being checked out for a possible minor stroke, and the MRA showed that her arterial passages in the neck and head were clear, but that the carotid artery was being displaced by the tumor which had previously been undetected. She also had elevated blood pressure when she went in for the checkup, and her blood pressure has continued to increase since that time a couple of months ago. We have spoken to several people (PhDs) who are medical researchers who have indicated that this might possibly be caused by the displacement of the baroreceptors in her carotid sinus. However, her medical doctors do not believe that this a feasible cause. Any suggestions are possible known similar cases?
