My Holter Monitor Results
I was referred to an cardiac electrophysiologist this year for sudden near faint or loss of conscious events on a daily basis. My symptoms at rest are chest pain radiate to left side of chest/arm/neck, difficulty breathing, strange palpitation, headache at top of head, dizziness and blurry vision, faitgue with numbness in feet and leg, feeling of lossing consciousness with inability to focus. (at least three times per week for few seconds or minutes during afternoon hour or sleeping hours) followed by tiredness and sleepiness for an hour. In addition, I had difficulty exercising will become tired very fast after a short walk.
My doctor requested the ECHO test which came back normal and the holter monitor test for 24-hours which showed some problems when my symptoms raised, the results of the holter test as follow:

I do not suffer any health issue, my thyroid function and blood pressure are normal.
Do I suffer a heart related problem? (My doctor did not provide a diagnosis yet but offered beta blockers medications currently Ivabradine 5mg twice a day to slow the heart rate).
Most of my symptoms disappeared after lifestyle changes such as rest more often, improve diet, sleep well, avoid stress, stop exercise however I still feel fatigue daily.
Thank you in advance.
