See a doctor: Looking at your history you probably have a heart condition and need to be worked up. If you are dizzy when your heart rate drops to 50 you need to call an ambulance next time.

Be seen: Would definitely recommend you be seen to rule out any major and possibly even life threatening cardiac arrhythmia. A holster moniter can sometimes be used to determine what is actually happening when you are experiencing those symptoms.
