    Hi joycemadine

    May i ask how old are you? And from what city? You say. Youre done with tudo echo.. And it was fine.. Have you had Bradycardia long since? Are just recently? What did your cardio say about your slow HB ?, has he given you what meds to compensate? Well As to your story i presume since the tudo echo was fine, there was no need for meds. Are you an athlete or rigorous periodic runner? If your in this category your just fine. If you are living a sedentary lifestyle, you may have an issue.

    Yes, since slow beats. means bloodflow is less going to your brain. It could cause your dizzeness. You need to trust your dr. If in doubt, you can always seek a second, third opinion. just have to find the right dr. With the best prescription. Im not a dr. Bu i have friends similar with your problems.

    Listen to your body.. I hope i have shared something of importance

    .best of health....

    Dear Joyce

    Sorry to hear about your concerns.

    Just because the structure of your heart is ok which is great it may not mean that the electrics are working properly. Maybe you can have those checked somehow. If you are very fit 46 may not be too serious as long as you feel ok.

    Good luck.
