Re: Heart Rate of 53?
Or it's a symptom of heartblock. But, I'm pretty sure there are other symptoms that go along with it - shortness of breath, dizziness, fainting spells, etc.
I have a ridiculously low heart-rate as well. I used to worry about it some, but I just had a complete work up (stress test, echo and a few ekg's) and everything came back pretty, so I'm not going to think anymore about it. My heart rate rests around 55 BPM - sometimes getting as low as 48. Doctor said it's normal for me and if I'm not having any symptoms to not worry about it.
To clarify - I did not have the heart workup for the slow heart rate, but for palpitations that started about a month ago.
