Very interesting article.I have bradycardia very slow heart beat.I went to see a specialist heart surgeon,I went through many tests. I had to wear a heart moniter for 24 hours because I was very lightheaded almost to the point of passing out.The heart surgeon explained to me that I will later in life be a good candidate for a
pacemaker.I found out that my father needed a pacemaker and a few of my uncles died of heart failure at a very young age 18.My mom told me that he was an athelete in school and died swimming.
