To all bradycardia-sufferers

Hello!

I have a question to everybody who (like myself) suffers from slow heart rate. I have a very strange feeling in my head. When I run or jump I can feel the blood moving around in my head, it feels like my brain is bouncing inside my skull. I think that this might be because the blood vessels in my head are too open (dilated). And the reason why they are too open might be because my blood circulation is bad because of my bradycardia.

So therefore I ask all you other bradycardia sufferers if you have a similar problem as I have or if my problem may be caused by something else.

I want as many answers as possible:).

Thanks in advance and have a nice day!

You can feel your circulation because your heart is beating slowly and heavily. When the heart rate is slow, your heart can fill up with lots of blood between each heart beat. When your circulation is high, like during jumping or running, you may experience this effect even when your heart rate is high.

Check your blood pressure, to see if you have the (not uncommon) combination of slow heart rate and high blood pressure. If it is normal, try to forget your heart rate.

Your blood vessels are not "too open".

No, blood pressure is ok, but do you think that means that the circulation is ok; because blood pressure is just the pressure it does not say anything about the volume of blood going around, right?

The low pulse in itself does not bather me, just my head pains.
