Causes Of Weak Heartbeats?
, I am a 23-year-old woman. When I was a child, the doctor said that I had a weak heart. Lately, I often feel that my heart rate is below normal, per minute, at least 46 bpm. I also felt that my heartbeat was not rhythmic, chest pain that penetrated to the back, dizziness, and tightness … What first aid should I do when that happens? And is this any indication toward heart problems? thank you
Heart rate frequencies that range below 60 beats per minute are referred to as bradycardia or slow heart rate. While irregular heart rhythm is also called arrhythmia. Both of these conditions can be dangerous because they can result in disruption of blood supply to various body tissues, so you should immediately consult a cardiologist if there are complaints such as tightness, weakness, chest pain or decreased consciousness.
Your doctor will ask for a history of complaints, conduct physical examinations and supporting examinations such as heart records, ultrasound of the heart, blood tests and hormone function. The cause of your complaint may only be ascertained after carrying out the examination so you should do the examination recommended by your doctor.
Not all of the above complaints are related to disorders of the heart but can be caused by other conditions such as impaired thyroid hormone function, anorexia, impaired electrolyte balance or due to side effects of drugs. Discuss the results of your examination with your doctor so you can determine the treatment steps that are appropriate to your conditions and needs.
