Heart Block and auto immune disease
My name is John I'm 45 and I had my pacemaker fitted Tuesday. A complete out of the blue situation.
I was found to have bradycardia as low as 30 and a varying mobitz 1 and 2 heart block.
I'm still in shock but starting to come to terms with it.
Before this I have been extremely fit and healthy. I run 20 miles a week and bike a few hundred miles a month. My normal resting heart beat was around high 50s.
What I would like try and understand is what has caused my heart block and why so sudden. I also have an autoimmune disease called Ankolysing Spondylitis.
I was wondering if anyone else on here has an autoimmune disease which they think may have caused their heart block?
