Many : First try the over the counter meds. A Sinus rinse is great (saline to flush out the nasal passages). Mucinex (guaifenesin) is a good medicine to loosen mucus. Sudafed is a good decongestant. Nasacourt is a good Nasal steroid spray that is available over the counter. If these things don't work, you need to be seen

Dr. Peter Kurzweil

Syncope and death.: The sinus node is a bundle of heart cells concentrated in the right atrium that normally sets off each heart beat for life. Arteriosclerosis may slowly, or rapidly in a heart attack, destroy these cells and lead to very abnormal, usually very slow, heart rates. If the rate slowed down to perhaps 30's, one may pass out, if worse, one may not wake up. Once the diagnosis is clear, need pacemaker.

Heart rate problem: Sick sinus syndrome is a vague medical term referring to a problem with the heart's sinus rhythm. It can include rhythms that are too fast, too slow, irregular, or all of the above. If symptomatic, it is often treated with a pacemaker. It can be a symptom of aging, or of a deeper problem. Definitely, get it checked out asap.
