Guess you guys are stuck with me for a while longer, as I don't appear to have any fatal heart condition after all. Apparently during the EKG I had recently, my heart rate was lower than normal. Average is 60-100 beats/minute and mine was 50. Lower than 45, they put in a pace maker. But when the physician checked it today it was 60, so the doctor thinks it's just that I am athletic. HA! Which really made me LOL because that is exactly what I am not! I am a fatty! Have you ever seen pictures of me? And I'm sucking in my gut in those pictures too.
Today's cardiology lecture:
Bradycadia can be a result of a high level of fitness, but it can also be caused by a problem with the electrical function of the heart, either as a result of sinus node (the heart's pacemaker) dysfunction, or a result of blockage of electrical signals from theA-V node. Hypothyroidism can also result in bradycardia.
The physician declared herself to be happy with my health, but I actually want to check into a few things on my own. But at least I'm not dead yet, and don't plan to be anytime soon.
