i've almost passed out getting my blood pressure taken, tb test, finger prick, an x-ray, blood draw, and most recently, a pap test. I am an athlete, but my heart rate is still considered low at around 45. I have asked my dr's if they think it is a related issue, but none have ever legitimized my case. I am finally glad to read that i am not the only one. at least now, i have a name for it.
