Hi there,

My son (aged nearly 4) has a complete heart block and is on the waiting list for a pacemaker.

Recently he has been complaining on chest pain and dizziness when at rest at bedtime.

His Cardiologist doesn't seem worried, as he says he should only be getting those symptoms when overly active (in which he doesn't get any symptoms, only when at rest!)

I can kind of see the cardiologists point, but can also see that when at rest my son's heart rate would decrease dramatically and as such would he not get his symptoms then?!?

Any advice gratefully received

hi jambermush. ya in a hard spot. got to trust the doc, but instincts always come in; and there is nothing wrong with this. If in doubt, clear those doubts yeah. ask questions till ya get answers. seek input. I am not good with little tickers, except to say that kids usually do not bs around pain and stuff. I am keeping you guys in my thoughts and hope if others with info who see this post. the forum can move at times but can be slow as well. keep strong, let us know how you are going ok.
