Left Bundle Branch Block

I am 76. Lbbb  since 2003.  Never had any symptoms then or now, found through ecg, echogram tnen nuclear testing. No heart attack either.If a pacemaker is needed in the future, would this be due to passing out or dizzy spells.  Never had any of those either. Is there a chance I could do either? I am very social and drive so that could be an issue.

Hi Pat,
If the remainder of your cardiac exam is normal, you don't have to worry. Just get an yearly EKG to look for changes. Dizzy spells are always a danger signal and should be investigated.

Hope this helps,
