Just to be safe: The first question would be is there a reversible cause for the conduction defect? You are young and unfortunately there is a risk of progression of Mobitz II to complete heart block which can lead to serious problems and even death. Mobitz II is treated with a pacemaker for this reason. If you have no symptoms, a pacemaker would make normal exercise safer. Further evaluation is necessary.
