Is Bradycardia A Kind Of Arrhythmia
Slow heart rate, also called bradycardia, is defined as a resting heart rate (pulse) less than 60 beats per minute. Having a heart rate less than 60 is not necessarily abnormal.

Ways to reduce cholesterol? Generally healthy, and not overweight but have high cholesterol. Also have slight sinus bradycardia/sinus arrhythmia. Doctors have told me not to worry after repeated EKGs. I want to keep my heart healthy/avoid CHF later?
Mostly genetic: A very high cholesterol may need to be medicated now, if for example you have familial hypercholesterolemia with LDL over 200. It is fairly common and deadly. Exercise is actually more helpful than diet here and you want to maintain lifelong good habits. There are guidelines, and there's no reason to believe super-tight cholesterol control in youth benefits you decades later. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Maybe: By feeling the pulse, it is often possible to determine if the heart is beating regularly or irregularly.

Are arrythmias not a concern if they occur on and off? My dr thinks I have some type of arrhythmia which is hard to catch on the monitors.
Usually no: If your echocardiogram and EKG are normal, at your age, the risk of a serious arrhythmia is 1% or less. The only other reason to try to catch it is if the symptoms are very bothersome. The next step would be to get a LINQ "injectable" monitor that lasts 3 years if it needs to be investigated further and if wearable monitors have been unrevealing ...Read more
It must be recorded: Precise diagnosis of a suspected arrhythmia requires a recording at the time of symptoms. Sometimes the problem is frequent enough to be demonstrated on a routine electrocardiogram (ecg). More often the symptoms are intermittent. There are several types of monitors that patients may wear or carry with them to obtain this recording when they feel symptoms. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Several....: There are several arrhythmias that can cause these symptoms including atrial fibrillation or atrial flutter, PVCs that can occur as "runs" where there are several in a row.

What kind of arrhythmia could I have with a HR of 68 BPM and a normal heart structure? I feel shortness of breath and fatigued.
Hard to say: given that the overalll structure and the rate is normal... There are many things that can give fatigue that are not heart. Indeed, a weak heart would tend to have an ELEVATED rate. Lung problems, anemia (although would tend to cause an elevated heart rate), obesity, pregnancy, lack of exercise, are just a few of the more common causes. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Patients with heart arrhythmias or tachycardia are often prescribed a type of drug called a "beta-blocker". Should I be?
Arrhythmia: Individuals with rhythm disturbances that are fast, tachyarrhythmias, are sometimes given beta blockers as a first agent. These are blood pressure meds that act by lowering the heart rate and can prevent some arrthymias. These are used if someone has symptoms from the arrhythmia and overall are safe and well tolerated meds. ...Read more
