1 doctor agrees
In brief: Depends
If the slow heart rate is sinus bradycardia from, say being well conditioned there is little risk of any serious symptoms.
If however, the heart rate is slow from a pathological condition one may experience, dizziness, fainting, fatigue, low blood pressure and other related symptoms.
