I continue to have chest pains,cough up blood & phlegm,dizziness ,swelling in abdomen,scrotum,I have gained 15 lbs in last 2 months , I monitor my blood pressure & heart rate daily  .My heart rate now is in the low 50's with an average blood pressure of  135 over 85. I HAVE HAD VARIOUS HEART TEST which my heart dr. says are normal but he also says my heart couldn't cause me to cough up blood. I had an egd & bronchoscopy which were also normal.

Hi,
How are you? Do you still experience bradycardia or slow heart rate? Bradycardia is caused by something that disrupts the normal electrical impulses controlling the rate of the heart's pumping action. This can be due to any of the following: degeneration of heart tissue related to aging, damage to heart tissues from heart disease or heart attack, high blood pressure, congenital heart defect, infection of heart tissue, underactive thyroid gland, imbalance of electrolytes, and sometimes medications. Talk to your doctor about this for proper evaluation. Take care and regards.
