hello,
Whats your age.
Heart rate of 40 is less. Your symptoms are probably due to this, do u ever had fainting or syncope.
You should get thyroid test done, if low needs to be on supplements and also kidney function test.
If both of the above are normal, then you probably and low heart rate is persistent then you ll be a candidate for pacemaker.

First, I failed the stress test. The Doctor seemed very concerned that my heart rate was so high after 2 minuets on the tredmill. My question is that after doing a cardio exercise for about 1 minuet, my heart rate went to 150 and there was no immediate ache but at some point durning the night, I had a dull ache in the heart. Could there be any other concern? I had the procedure where they went in to check for blockage. There was none. My age is 46 and I am approx 275lbs

I am a 52 year old female. 6 years post hysterectomy. No Ovaries. I am on meds for depression and antiflamattories for severe shoulder tendinitis (both sides). Recent MRI suggested possible anemia due to dark bone marrow appearance. Starting a few days ago I smell all milk as sour. Even cheese. My family insists the milk is NOT sour so it has to be me. I have quit all milk products to avoid the smell.
