I recently had a pacemaker put in on August 23, 2023. I have felt that my pulse is too high now. Most of the time it is in the 90s. I have had high blood pressure for a long time but the pulse part was never an issue for me. Until I took my blood pressure on August 16th and discovered that it was in the 40s. I was advised to go to the ER which I did not want to do so I went to an urgent care instead and my EKG was abnormal so they sent me over to the ER. They did a angiogram to make sure that my arteries were not clogged and then they did put in a pacemaker for bradycardia. I am in the process of trying to get into a new doctor because I felt the doctor that was assigned to me in the hospital was stretched too thin. He had PAs to do his rounds at four different hospitals. He worked out of seven different hospitals, and then another PA to take his office appointments, and I wanted a relationship with an actual doctor that I could talk to you each time, so I'm in the process of trying to get into this new doctor. I'm concerned about my high pulse rate I feel it needs to be adjusted. Has anybody else had this issue where they put it in and your pulse rate stays too high normally my pulse rate would be in the 70s or sometimes low 80s but yesterday and some other days it's like in the 90s. My pacemaker is set to kick in anything below 60 and up to 130. I never thought I would have to have a pacemaker and I'm not at peace with it. I don't know if its my anxiety with it that is causing it to be so high or if it's just set too high but I was just curious if anybody else has had this happen because I haven't been able to remedy it yet.

I had a pacemaker since 2002 and ever since then my life has been a total blessing.
