Should I Worry About a Low Heart Rate?
When is a slow heart rate a sign of something more?
You often hear people talk about their racing heart, but what about a heartbeat that’s too slow?
A slower than normal heart rate is called bradycardia, and for adults, this typically refers to a heart rate that of fewer than 60 beats per minute.
Bradycardia can often have no symptoms or complications. However, it can lead to more serious problems if the heart isn’t able to pump enough oxygen-rich blood through your body. Symptoms can include fainting or near-fainting, dizziness, shortness of breath, chest pain, confusion, memory issues, or getting easily tired during physical activity.
