I am a 47 year old white female. I am not overweight nor have I ever smoked. I have always exercised on a fairly regular basis. Last year I started running regularly (1.5 to 3 miles) 2 to 3 times per week but it is very hard and I really have to push myself. I am taking 50 mg of cozaar 2x per day for high blood pressure. My heart rate is usually around 51 bpm but often it is in the mid to upper 40's even while doing household chores. I often have episodes of strong dizziness and have a feeling like an ache in my chest. The dizziness is not a spinning sensation but more lightheaded like I should sit down. My vision is not blurry but is different. Sometimes I will have nausea as well. Also, I sometimes feel like I can feel my heart beating and recently I have experienced a feeling like my heart (I guess it is my heart) is jumping or kicking. Also, sometimes I will wake up in the middle of the night and my hands will be on my stomac and feel tingly like they are asleep. My cardiologist does not seem concerned about my heart rate. I have had numerous tests that have come back normal. My stress test (November 2007) was not normal but my doctor said it was not uncommon in women. Does this sound right? Should I be concerned about my heart rate? Could my slow heart rate be causing my hypertension? (Hypertension, heart disease, stroke and diabetes are prominent in my family.)T
