Exercising after pacemaker
I've had my pacemaker for over a year now, and unfortunatly I haven't felt any significant improvment.. Aside from my heart beating up to 160bpm, my max pre-pacemaker was about 90bpm on the stress test. Anyways, I have been struggling to pushing myself and get exercise with my pacemaker. I have anxiety and fear that has been holding me back from just see how far I can go. This is partly due to the fact that, in previous attempts at working out (brisk walk/jogging) I would get my heart rate up, but would eventually get scared after seeing such high bpm and stop. And I would get an episode of tackycardia hours following the workout. Has anyone else had a similar experience or faced any anxiety when exercising?

My ICD/pacer is not a burden. I still play tennis and golf.
