Hi all, I have second degree heart block and the person I saw at hospital is trying to discharge me from cardiology which I think is wrong. I have so many symptoms which mainly occur at the gym but can do at home also. My heart rate goes very high at the gym but my heartrate has been recorded as too low (Wencklebach) during my sleep on a number of occasions on my Holter Monitor results. I wondered if anyone has been in a similar situation as myself or has second degree heart block. My issue is that medication could put my heart rate too low at night, so I'd like a pacemaker fitted. I am getting a second opinion from my GP but the hospital are stalling on sending my results through. I have now emailed the hospital team (they have a place to resolve hospital queries) so I'm hoping they can intervene for me a bit. As I get breathless, nausea, chest pains, cough, extreme fatigue, heartrate too high, nearly fainting, dizziness and many other things I am not wanting to just be discharged from Cardiology. The British Heart Foundation think I should be tested further with Electrophysiology tests or that I could get a pacemaker. Would be great if anyone can reply in case your information is helpful to me. Thanks
