Low heart rate

Hi

For years I’ve suffered SVT with history of brief aFib. My SVT was usually hormonally charged however I had a hysterectomy 8 months ago for which initially stopped palpitations, I also quit smoking, I felt great.

They’re back. Not as severe but still aware. I’ve also noticed a very low resting heart rate daily of around 50, can go lower. At night it drops to 39. 

I’ve not passed out, and I’m not really symptomatic with the low HR but it’s scary. My GP states it’s better to have a low HR and I’m actually very healthy. She won’t entertain another referral to cardiology and asked me to stop checking my HR 😔

Anyone out there with similar?

    Go back and insist! That is a great heart rate if you are an athlete. Other wise too low. You could have Sick Sinus Syndrome. It happens, I have it. Now have pacemaker because I had heart pauses I did not even know about. I am blessed they found it. I don't know your age, but with your SVT your Dr is being irresponsible! Find a new one! It's your life!! Good Luck!

      Hi thanks for replying, it would make sense! 

      I’m 48 and have had arrhythmia for 10 years.  ECG’s have always been normal however as recent as last week
