Night time bradycardia and hypotension


Specializes in Well baby nursery. Has 2 years experience.

Anyone experience this? My normal BP is 130/80 or a little less with a pulse in the sixties.

The closer it gets to night time my bp drops. It'll go as low as 95/50. Yes I do get vaguely lightheaded. My pulse will drop to the low 50s to 40s. My cardiologists don't seem impressed, but it's scary to me. Now I've started to experience fullness in my ears at night as well. Any idea what could be causing this? I thought about dehydration, but I thought that would increase your pulse not decrease it. I realize a lower pressure is good for most, but not with those symptoms.
