    Sick sinus, heart block or not heart related

    First I am a 25 yr old male. Prior to having all these symptoms I was fairly active and in pretty decent shape. The symptoms I have had are I have been pretty fatigued (not overly fatigued as I can still do a lot of stuff, but haven't been able to work out), I have had some dizziness, I have also started to have some anxiety problems recently that I never had before (obviously due to not knowing what is going on). I get low grade headaches, but they usually don't start till later in the day. I have also been shown to have bradycardia. I had an EKG where my pulse was only 50, then I was put on a holter monitor and it got down to 32 over night. I had an ultrasound of my gallbladder, liver, and other organs in which they found my liver was enlarged. I went to a specialist for this, and since I didn't have any other liver symptoms and he couldn't feel it he thought this was nothing to worry about.

    I went to a cardiologist and now I have a stress test and an echocardiogram coming up this week, then follow up appointments with an electrophysiologist and the cardiologist again. I have had blood work done twice in which both times they have said everything looked normal. I was unable to get a hold of these results and am not sure what all they even tested for. I know they said liver and kidney functions were normal.

    Recently I went to the ER because on night I woke up and just didn't feel comfortable and then my heart starting going fast (prolly around 150). They didn't really do many tests because he said I had so many done already that he would just be redundant. He did give me ativan for anxiety because I think that was probably just an anxiety attack. I had no history of anxiety before this either. Today I was at a football game and towards the end it was exciting and I really starting feeling shaky and dizzy, and my heart was going pretty quickly again.

    I am just perplexed and I think my doctors have been too. I just was wondering if anyone had any ideas about this?

    Are you referring to the sick sinus syndrome ?
    What you are describing as symptoms of and i noticed your title and wondered if you have been diagnosed as sick sinus syndrome.
    There is much to read about this syndrome. Learn as much as you can as you will benefit from knowledge.

    Re: Sick sinus, heart block or not heart related

    I have not been diagnosed with anything as of yet. The symptoms that I have been feeling are dizziness, and fatigue are the major ones. I was wondering if anyone thought it was possible for me to have either one of those. I just today went to get an echo and stress test. I have an appointment with an electrophysiologist coming up on Monday, and go back to my regular cardiologist the Monday after that.

    I was diagnosed with WPW in 2004, but had a radio frequency ablation also in 2004, and have not had an episode of WPW since then. This all really came up on my quickly. Just one day about a month ago I started feeling dizzy, and just haven't felt normal since then. All of this is giving me anxiety. So bad infact that I went to the emergency room one night with what I believe was just a panic attack. I have been feeling okay, but then just a couple of days ago my dizziness really intensified, and has really worried me since my heart rate has been kinda low like in the low 50s upper 40s before I go to bed, but the dizziness doesn't correlate with the heart rate I am just dizzy all the time so I don't know if they are related or not.
