Hi i will be thank ful to some one who can diagonise my case of sinus bradycardia. I am not an athlete or good sports man. Infact i am very weak runner and sports man as i get exhausted very fast and i couldnot run or exercise for more than 10 min.
I have a low heart rate of 32 bpm during night hrs and average of 54 beats per min during day IN HOLTER STUDIES BUT I WAS TOLD THAT I HAVE GOOD CHRONOTROPIC RESPONSE IN TREAD MILL TEST(STRESS TEST)

  • Well,I'm not sure I have the answer for you,but sinus bradycadia can result from an increase in vagal nerve tone,intrinsic disease of the sinoatrial node,or from medications,such as digitalis or quinidine,which I doubt that you're taking.It also might be normal for you unless you get dizzy or faint from it.Do you have any symptoms from it?

  • yeah thanks a lot for ur kind responsei didnt experience any faint off or feeling of dizzyness till now and i am not using any such medications as u specified. one thing i want to tell you is i used more than some 100 cetrizine medicines for allergy problem.other than that i didnt use ant medicines and that cetrizine also i am not using from past4 months. can u tell me any consequences of long vagal nerve tone .the only symptom i have is i get tired fast when running or during some physical work out.other than this symptom i am not expwriencing any other symptoms.is it safe to continue runnng or exercising in the same manner as i do

  • Well,for one thing your vagus nerve slows down your heart.It also has many other functions which are too numerous to mention,but if it's the culprit,I'm pretty sure that it's only affecting your heart.Do you know if you have any escape beats(also called premature ventricular contractions)?If you do, it's more serious of a condition.If not,it's O.K. to do whatever you want to.

  • Yes,your slow heart rate is causing you yo be short of breath because your heart cannot increase its rate enough to keep up with the oxygen demands of your exercise.No.I'm not a heart specialist,but I'd be happy to look at your studies.
