Right Bundle Branch Block

Back in 06 I had some chest pains and I found out I had an Incomplete Right Bundle Branch Block. I had no idea what this was and I became so worried about it. I had an echo done, stress test and even wore a holter monitor for a day, and they told me all was normal, but I still worry sometimes, is a bundle branch block harmless because I have wierd feelings sometimes in my chest. I also am a weight lifter, and enjoy running. Its always in the back of my mind, am I safe to do these things. Its been 5 years and im worried if something might of changed and it got wrose. I workout up to 5 days a week, I just want to know im safe, or should I slow down a bit.

A bundle branch block of any kind is indicative of underlying conduction disease -- which can be caused by a variety of reasons. A right bundle branch block pattern can be completely benign as well as signal something more serious. The normal results of your diganostic testing is more reassuring that this is something that will likely be followed over time with serial ECG's. This should not preclude you from participating in your normal activites and exercise routines.

Additionally, an incomplete RBBB usually represents a RBBB "pattern" but does not fall into the typical category of a complete bundle branch block as the normal depolarization is not delayed (a true sign of conduction disease).
