My heart is beating extremely slow and I'm dizzy? HELP?

Um first off let me throw this out there. I've been having diarhea for the past few weeks and my dad has diagnosed bradycardia but he doesn't need to take medication for it.
I've been losing weight rapidly and I'm not entirely sure why. I've cut junk foods (chocolate, etc.) out of my diet but I'm eating like normal.
My heart is beating so slow right now I think it might stop. It's scaring me. I feel dizzy and it gets worse when I stand or walk. I feel like I'm on the verge of passing out or vomiting when I stand or move around. Last night I literally thought I was dying, I had to lay down on my back and I felt like I was going to vomit and pass out. My parents are reluctant to take me to a doctor and I don't want to get pushy with them unless I know for sure something is wrong.

You need to seek emergency help right away. It sounds like you have a dangerously low blood pressure. The nausea and slow heart beat confirm this. GO TO THE EMERGENCY ROOM! If you pass out it might be too late. A doctor can help you more than anyone on the internet.
