What causes electrical pulse sensation in chest radiating towards head?

I get some kind of electrical pulse starting in my chest going up to my head. It happens very quickly and does not hurt. I am fifty, pretty fit but have bradycardia and at rest my heartbeat is 40bpm. The pulse sensation is like the sensation you get when you are asleep and fall. Should I be worried?

Hello,

Electric pulse sensation over chest radiating towards head do indicate issue with heart rhythm most likely affecting valvular and pumping function of heart. Immediately get a physician consultation for:
- Pulse and blood pressure
- EKG
- 2 D Echo

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
