I just received my Holter monitor (24h) results. Im expecting a call from my doc, only spoke to the nurse...so while Im waiting, I figured look online. The nurse said they are referring me to a cardiologist for evaluation. Just wanting opinions before I go if this is something serious or not.
I'm not a cardiologist but the only thing I see that was a bit off was the minimum hr of 25. That seems a bit low to me even if it was in the middle of the night when our pulse slows down a bit anyway.
The PVC's and PAC's were not excessive and were all singles. Not too unusual. It would still be best to have your cardio explain it all and address any concerns.
One more question. Could the very low heart rate be the cause of feeling lightheaded? I originally blacked out after my heart started feeling really strange...which is why I did the holter monitor to begin with. Since that day, I have felt lots of dizziness and I'm constantly tired. Just looking for possible answers until I hear back from the doctor. Thx
I read your post to....and ireneo is right...25 is low and is considered to be classic bradycardia or a very slow heart beat which trust me they can correct with todays medical science. And yes a heart rate that low could be causing your dizziness because not enough oxygenated blood is flowing thru your system. And as for tired...yep that too. I wouldn't stress it too much until you have the results from a heart doc tho Pville...my only advice is using caution when driving if you feel like you are starting to get light headed make absolutely sure you pull over...for your safety and others on the road. The docs will get to the bottom of this before you know it....If the episodes start feeling like they are increasing start hammering the doctors office with calls so that you can get in sooner so tht they can take care of this and you can get your life back...good luck and let us know what the doc says...good luck at your appt.
