Sick sinus syndrome

What is Sick sinus syndrome?

This is a catchall term related to diseases affecting the Sinus Node (part of the heart which initiates the heartbeat). So when it's sick, most people will get an Arrhythmia (irregular, inefficient heart beats). The symptoms of these arrhythmias vary widely and can be anything from general fatigue to fainting and worse. Your physician will be able to diagnose this by examining you and doing an ECG
