I work in an electrical store. . . . next to the doors which are electrical security.

Is this a good move?

I honestly didn't think it really mattered. . . bit like not using your mobile phone at the petrol station. Chances are so slim, but people have to make such an issue out of it!?!

Can someone please message? . . . Some honest answers. Am I on my own on this? Feel so stupid

I have a friend who also has a pacemaker (I don't know what type). She is afraid to use the treadmill because she worries that there might be magnets in the controls (for calories burned, steps, miles etc) that will cause her pacemaker to "act up". I have never been told not to use a pacemaker (as long as you don't exercise too strenuously). I don't know if her doctor recommended not using a treadmill or if she is afraid to use it.

Hi. Have always had trouble sleeping and even more so after getting implanted with a CRT-D in August. In fact, I hardly had a good night's sleep from August to October!

Came across the Philip Stein sleep bracelet at the watch display. Want to try it (early selfie Christmas gift) but i Googled a review which says pacers can't use them. Or heart disease patients.

Any thoughts? Am seriously wanting to ask my EP. Previously I used the Withings Pulse, Fitbit Flex and the Jawbone UP without any problems.

Appreciate any experience you might share.

What precautions should I take around a microwave oven?
Should I avoid standing too close? Are their any brands that
are problematical? This is the one thing I have yet to re-
solve and therefore I am still uncomfortable around them.

Does anyone know if the pacemaker interferes with the fitbit's operation. I have not bought one yet. Thought i would check here to see if others may have some experience with the fitbit and pacemaker operation.

I live in Alaska. It gets very cold here sometimes. I'm curious how cold is to cold? -20, -40? It's been as cold as -80! I don't leave the warm house at that temp if I can help it but what if I need to help bring in wood? I know my body keeps the pacemaker warm but it's close to the skin and I just don't know the parameters .

Can anyone give me advise if it is worth buying a PM alert unit i.e.Osun detecting magnetic fields etc ? Or is it throwing away money...

Does anyone know if using an Ultrasound room humidifier or vaporizer will interfere with my Medtronic pacemaker?
I have Asthma and the room air gets too dry in the winter when the heat is on...So I bought this device (without reading the small print! LOL) Apparently it heats the water to make the steam with ultrasound! hummmm.

I am a newly battery operated (about 7 days now) and I was wondering if anyone knows if it is okay to use a massage chair when you have a pacer???? We have one that sits in our living room chair and is electric (with heat controls as well). I haven't been able to find this anywhere in my magic pacemaker booklet. Any opinions or suggestions are welcome- thank you!

I was wondering if there is a conflict with the Medtronic pacemaker and using a Far Infrared mattress. Suffering from major arthritis and was hoping for a little relief from chronic pain.

The mattress will be plugged into a 120v, and the infrared mattress is underneath the regular mattress pad. There is also a layer that protects from EMF. The infrared emits very low levels, especially at a 0 setting which will have most often.

Thanks in advance for any feedback.

PS I guess I can contact Medtronic with this question, too.

Just because you have a device doesn't mean you are damaged goods and can't do anything worthwhile and have to lie down and die. In fact, you're better and stronger. You're bionic!
