In brief: No
There are some genetic conditions associated with heart block, some associated with deafness.
In these cases, the heart block is permanent. If your heart block is transitory, it may be related to some medications you are taking (if any) or underlying conditions, depending on your age. You should see a doctor to determine if further tests or treatments (e.g. Pacemaker) are needed.
