    Short PR Interval and Fainting

    Hi All,

    I'm hoping for some insight into a health issue that I've been experiencing for a few months.

    Four months ago I passed out in a store while I was along with my kids. It was scary! I chalked it up to not eating and exhausting as my husband had been out of town and I really was feeling overtired.

    Since that time I have had numerous other episodes where I feel light headed, short of breath and need to sit down.

    I went to a doctor yesterday and was told the following:

    My PR interval is 118. BP is 100/60. I've been referred to a cardiologist and told not to exercise until I see the Dr.

    Based on the info above, does anyone have any insight? I feel terrified.

    Re: Short PR Interval and Fainting

    a short PR interval with a QRS abnormality suggestive of pre-excitation could be a tip off for Wolf-Parkinson-White Syndrome. This syndrome can produce a re-entrant tachycardia. Can also be other electrical conduction aberrations that produce a short PR interval.

    Hear anything about that??
