Hello, My name is Miranda and I am currently 26. I have an irregular heart beat that is called PCA's. PCA's are not life threatening, but they do make me feel lightheaded, out of breath, and VERY tired. I have been dealing with this since I was about 20 years old, and have had 2 EP Studies with ablations. After my second EP study failed and the PAC's returned I was placed on Metoprolol to take as needed. Long story short the medication is no longer working and my electrophysiologist believes that another EP study with ablation is needed, but this time there is a risk of ablating the node, and needing a pace maker. My question for you all is do i just put up with the PAC's because they are not life threatening, but do ruin my days. Or do i ...

Hi,

I know this is off topic but does anyone have a home remedy for a cough expectorate. I have episodes of coughing with a lot of phlegm that I am unable to cough up, which leads to a slight panic attack and I can't catch my breath. I really do not want to take any OTC meds, I have enough problems. Would appreciate your input. Thank you.

I posted something yesterday titled "New here" and when I logged out today I couldn't log back in whenever I log in it says " invalid email" and everything is right so I don't know what I'm doing wrong

Hi all,

I just received a message in my account here as follows:

Charitable Donation From Mrs. Lisa Dillon.
Abidjan Cote D'Ivoire


Attention!!!!

Greetings in the name of the LORD Almighty the giver of every good thing. I know this proposal will definitely come to you as a huge surprise, but I implore you to take your time to go through it carefully as the decision you make will go a long way to determine my future.


Clearly this is not a Pacemaker Club related message. Just though I'd let folks know incase others are experiencing similar issues.


Cheers

"What sort of day was it? A day like all days, filled with those events that alter and illuminate our times... all things are as they were then, and you were there." - Walter Cronkite

Yesterday was one of those days that'll go down in history for me. In accordance with some of our discussions regarding the severity if Shingles, coupled with the news we received that a friend had succumbed to complications from same, I finally decided to get a Shingles immunization and scheduled an appointment for same with my Primary Care Physician.

Finally the day arrived yesterday, and I dutifully jumped out of bed and performed my morning duties so I could make my early morning appointment. Feed the beasts, walk the dogs, and obe...

What's up with so many members going in stealth mode? The members gallery is rapidly filling up with blanks...did their pacers fail?

I'm new to this club. I've had my PM for several years without any complications. I have a St. Jude's Medical 5826 with 2 leads. I'm wondering if anyone has tried the Xyngular diet products? It's expensive but I've seen people who have had amazing results! I've never tried diet supplements, so if anyone could let me know if they've tried this or any other products, I'd appreciate it!

Why is it that the posting date reads "backward" ?
Here in the USA we read left to right .. with the most important or most recent info on the left ..Its more sensible, more logical, more convenient to start with the time, then the day, month, year...Many sites just present the time only without extraneous information ..
This is a good site, but it needs more activity..

Aloha!
I am a 28 year old mother of an 11 year old son; unfortunately I ended up with a LBB (Left Bundle Branch) 3 years ago. I was told that it would get better over time because I had no symptoms (short of breath, water in my lungs, etc) I was all good =( I have a surgery for mastoiditis on Saturday, I had to call them yesterday and cancel. I waited 5 years, I was told that there will be no cardiac anesthesiologist.
Wednesday I was called by my cardiologists surgeon consultant. I went in yesterday and found out that I need a biventricular defibrillator implant and a synchronator. Unfortunately it is an emergency surgery that will be will in two weeks. I cannot help my family, I cannot be there for my son, I will be out of ...

...that means!

It's Birthday month on the North American Continent. Yep, starting at the Arctic Circle & moving south.

1 July our neighbors to the nawth celebrate their birthday - Jessie alerted the World to that auspicious occasion a few days ago.

Today, 4 July, us brash cowboys to the south of the St Lawrence River & Great lakes celebrate our birthday. (Jessie, we gave up on "54 -40 or fight!" well over 100 yrs ago.) We almost speak the same language, drive the same cars (built on both sides of the border), watch a lot of the same TV, share a lot of the same movie & TV actors, & cross what was once the world's longest unfortified border like it isn't even there.

People are still trying to ...

I have a well tuned pacer. I hardly know I have it. I am 76 year old, hike and camp alone in the desert. I have more energy than I have had in a long time. The only problem is my wife wants to have a knob installed so she can turn the pacer down.
