RBBB is more common in high blood pressure cases, but if is with heart attack the issue is serious and has to be tackled in a proper way. they may need a pacemaker also, along with angioplasty.

incomplete RBBB could be a normal variant and usually an innocous conduction disorder. RBBB seldom progresses to high degree blocks. Get a angiography done once she's stabilised medically.

RBBB is right bundle branch block. In the the blood vessel supplying the heart is blockes, hence heart will not be able to function and this needs to be treated

I have had three heart attacks over the past two years. I have been referred to four doctors for my heart exams, lab work, etc. Each doctor recommends another medication for me. I am real uneasy about four doctors not knowing what the other has given me. I am taking 15 meds right now from four doctors. Is my concern warranted?

For the last 6 months I have been experiencing what feels like palpitations. I primarily feel these in my throat and it takes my breath away. I have had a complete Cardiology work up but they continue to occur and they are extremely scary. I am afraid my heart is just going to stop beating. I drink absolutely no caffeine and absolutely nothing with any kind of stimulants in it. I also have sharp pains in my chest every now and then and pain in my esophagus. I am worried there may be something wrong and the doctors are just missing it. These palpitations create so much anxiety when they occur so of course I sit and wait for another one to happen. Does anyone have any answers?

I have pure autonomic failure. I am 26 years old, female, 170 lbs and 5'10". I have a lot of scalp pain and hair loss. Thyroid has been checked and is normal. what can be done about the hair loss, and could it be part of the autonomic failure? I also have a long QT interval and wonder if it is related to the PAF or if it is separate.

Dear Sir, i have a question in distinguishing a heart problem and deconditioning...i am 29 years old, previously professional athlete for 10 years but limited my activity due to arrhythmia episodes which were PSVT mostly but many many many PVCs as well...my functional class also reduced to III class...now i am apparently in calss I but i have two questions which i am not able to answer...i have started jogging on tread mill with 6th speed for 20 min daily...during jogging not any problem max one or two PVCs but about an hour after stopping the sports my heart beats becomes irregular...many PVCs as if even simple movement triggers it, chest discomfort and it may even linger to many hours if i get really tired...i am not able to distinguish whether this is deconditioning or still my heart is not doing well?

I was told that I have splondyosis (c4 and c5) in the neck, I get severe neck pain from time to time but recently have been experiencing dizziness and a throbbing head and palpitations when lying down. Most nights the pain is severe and it wakes me up from sleep. I also have really bad headaches at the back of the head and sometimes it gets swollen. I just wanted to ask what is causing the dizziness and throbbing head and palpitations? Aisha
