My sons pulse rate was very low , its only 40 to 56
my son pulse rate was very low , its only 40 to 56. what should i do? our cardiologist said its ok as of now but he can not be exhuasted. he should not drive.everything is ok with him right now, just a 2x a year check up
A lot of people who are athletic have a lower pulse rate. 40 is getting kind of low though. As long as his blood pressure is ok they may just keep an eye on him. If he complains of dizziness or seems a little sluggish or confused I would think it was too low for him and take him back to ANY doctor or emergency room. Don't wait for a cardiologist even if they might send you to one later. If that doctor told you he should not be exhausted or cannot drive then they think there is a problem. That is not normal. If that is all they told you then I would call them back and say you want more information. You have the right to have them explain why. If they will not help you get a second opinion as soon as you can!!

My 12 year old son has been having dizziness. His heart rate has been on the low side since he was young. He had obstructive sleep apnea until his adnoids and tonsils were removed at age 6. His lowest pulse while asleep was 47. He recently had an EKG. His results are below. Could you help me to know if these are normal? I would appreciate it greatly!Vent Rate 56 BPM,PR interval 136 ms,QRS duration 88 ms, QT/QTc 414/399 ms, P-R-T axes 56 93 74
My son was diagnosed with limited Wegener s at the age of 16.9 years old. He s doing okay as far as the disease staying limited to his sinuses. He s had one relape that was treated with Ritutxin. Our issue is that if he gets sick, had frequant diarhea he passes out (drops like a rock). His pulse is LOW (40-50) and his blood pressure drops to 70/40 range most of the time. He gets clammy turns pasty white. He has a Rheum tht he sees, his tests have all come back okay and everyone just passes it off as a syncope issue. We have seen a Neuro and he suggested Othrostatic Neuropathy...but no treatment or precautions. Granted he s 20 and doesn t take care of himself (like I would like him to) but he s healthy his last episode was with my mom after just walking around the house...
I am a 23 year old female, studying medicine. For past 8 months, i have been having some episodes of heart 'dysfunctions' that now have turned constant. I need help in knowing what is the condition. It started last may when one day i started feeling so weak that i just could not get up and was having a splitting headache, when i measured my BP was 90/55mmHg ( before it was always 120/80mmHg). I was having palpitations, bradycardia at times, tachycardia at times, extreme weakness, sweating ( especially on scalp) after sleeping after headache. I was also having light sleep. Slowly, these episodes became constant. Now I am feeling weak all times, light headed if sitting or standing for long, headache (thumping with constant heaviness), inability to sleep, tightness in chest, chest pain sometimes, tachycardia at any normal activity (walking, doing some tidy up), BP is still low. I also get dry cough on breathing sometimes. So i got a holter done for 24 hours, got following: - sinus tachycardia( 110- 120) almost all day with some normal rate in between, my heart rate dropped to 50 in middle of night ( reason causing me to wake up from sleep and not to sleep again) and it remained like that for 3 hours - average pulse -81 - my heart rate jumped to 179 per min when i climbed stairs ( 9 floors, easily climbed by others), breathing became laboured, headache with blacking out sensations ( i did not faint though) - I have some abnormalities in lead I, II and III ( looks like left axis deviation as lead I is showing highest peaks and is moving away from III ) even the avL and avF looks weird, QTc>450ms is 47%, no ST deviation, no T wave abnormalities I also have tachypnea (26-28 per min) and accentuation of Pulmonary part of second heart sound. I also have slight edema on my feet ( bluish tinge) I also did a blood work up, I do not have thyroid problems or anemia I need some advice on what i might be having, so as to proceed further on treatment.
I am a 25 yr old female that has recently lost 70 pounds and suffers from pcos. I am off all the bp medicines I was taking, and have been on a gluten free diet since 4/21/11 b/c I am allergic to wheat. I have been getting dizzy, lightheaded, and have a fast heart rate and low blood pressure when standing or sitting up. my heart rate is usually in the 60 -70 range when resting, and it's been in the high 90 - 100 range while resting. The dizziness started Sunday 6/19/11 all of a sudden, and I have kept track of my BP and symptoms since Sunday. I get this intense pressure in my head, and the get dizzy, and my heart will race when I start to feel yucky, I have trouble breathing, when my heart rate is up this high for no apparent reason. My BP will be 93/62 and HR 101 standing, or it can be 114/65 and HR 80 a few minutes later.. but if I go from lying down to sitting, it will be elevated, then it elevates when I stand, if I lay down everything is fine.. the pressure in my head goes away, the dizzyness goes away, and the HR goes back to normal... I have a shunt in place for hydrocephalus, my first shunt was placed at the age of two weeks, and first revision was done 4/5/2010. I want to know what is causing this fluctuation in BP and the dizziness, and fast HR...thanks
Hi:) I am 19 years old girl-normal weight going to thin. Non-smoker,non-drinker,never used drugs.
My problem is the fast heart rate. I get tired so easily. Mine heart rate in rest is ussually normal min 70 max 90. But problem is when i am standing up-it start to jump and raise up the tahycardia to 150. Then i feel fatique and dizziness,weakness in legs and arms. Even i can't walk anymore,it beats so fast so i lost my breathe and i need to sit. After sit it gets calm for 5 min.
I did all blood analizys and they all came back normal. I checked heart with ecg,holter monitor and echo,and doctors here said that everything is ok with heart. Another thing is my bp which is 90/60 generally. Isn't it wired to have low bp and high hr?
I am in big worry and i ask for help as soon as it is possible:)
my blood pressure is 138 over 82 and my heart rate is 56 - my heart rate hardly ever reaches 60 beats when resting and bp is normally 116 over 72 - should i be worried about slow heart rate i am not at all fit athletic - i am a 55 year old woman with a history of sarcoidosis
