Hi, im a 19 y\o male, and about 3 years ago I was told I had a incomplete right bundle branch block. Needless to say I developed aniexty from this because I was worried, and didnt really know what it was. I had some tests done to try and ease my worries. I had some ekg`s, blood tests, echocardiogram, stress test, and wore a holter monitor for 24 hours. Anyways, I used to be very active, but lately this is starting to bother me again and im worried about weather or not I should be excerising too much or not. When I seen the cardiogolist, I was active at the time, and he said to continue what im doing and not worry. I recently read some problems that are associated with a bundle branch block, and im pretty worried. Just wondering if anyone has any infomation about bundle branch blocks.
I have leftBBB. Mine kicks in at a certain rate and I can feel it. It feels out of rythym and I have to stop what I'm doing, I can tell you from experience, too much info is not good. It will scare you. With RBBB you have a better chance of death by getting hit by a train.
So stay off the tracks and quit worrying.
What are your symptoms? Can you feel them all the time? Is yours rate dependent?
I've had some pain and chest tightness on the left side with left block and enlarged right atrium and enlarged left ventricle on ekg. I have low oxygen from sleep apnea.
are there drugs like ACE drugs to treat this?
