Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Its 37
Been about a week since it dropped low
Health Professional: Dr. Saha, Doctor (MD) replied 1 year ago

Thank you for all the information,
I am sorry for your health condition.
37 or 38 / min is quite low.
This rate needs investigation.
There can be a few causes.
This can be due to block in the conduction system of heart.
Sinus or other sites of slowing can be possible too.
Often the cause is due to ischemia or low blood supply to heart.
There can be myocarditis, cardiomyopathy.
Hormonal disorders like low thyroid, medicinal effect, obstructive sleep apnea can be associated.
I would suggest to consult cardiologist for an examination.
An EKG,echo, Holter monitoring can be needed.
I hope this information helps.
If there’s anything else I can do, please let me know.
Wish your good health.
Please rate my answer excellent if you are satisfied with it.
Regards.

is there anything I can do at home and now to help me feel better and increase heart rate, I was investigated with my heart last year as it was beating really fast and there was nothing wrong with heart then
Health Professional: Dr. Saha, Doctor (MD) replied 1 year ago

I am sorry.
There is unfortunately no home measures to increase the rate.
The cause needs to be determined & treated precisely.
A monitor would be helpful to detect the exact rate & rhythm.

Sorry didn't mean to press that request button
Health Professional: Dr. Saha, Doctor (MD) replied 1 year ago

It is not necessary.

Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
No the most recent one is topiramate which I started in may
Health Professional: Dr. Saha, Doctor (MD) replied 1 year ago

Topiramate may not cause it.

Your medicines may not be the factor.

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Oh, I was hoping it might of been one of them, although I did read side effects for all medications I'm on and they all mention fast heart rate and a possible effect!!
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
What is the lowest it should go down to before I should be really worried, where it would be unsafe? Or what signs should I look out for, to be worried
Health Professional: Dr. Saha, Doctor (MD) replied 1 year ago

Your rate is already quite low.

There can be symptoms of palpitation, shortness of breath, dizziness, chest pain etc. from it.

Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
what would you say would be unsafe, pulse wise
Health Professional: Dr. Saha, Doctor (MD) replied 1 year ago

It would be unsafe if it goes below 40.

However, you may not be able to count it properly.

It is continuing for a week without any symptom.

It is better to get it checked by doctor & EKG.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
