Base and upper rate
Hi , firstly I know I should be asking my EP the following questions, but they have little / no time during appointments etc .
Last interrogation, I was unaware that they turned my pace rate down from 70 to 60 bpm.
I felt a little funny for several weeks, only on going to gym etc and prolonged bending over , on getting out of bed too. I thought I was imagining things till I finally phoned hospital and spoke to an arithmia nurse who looked at my notes . I'm not happy they didn't inform me - obviously , but I'm now paced at 60 .
I also noticed ( doing cardio at gym ) my heart rate rarely goes ( if ever ) above 130 ! I take Biprosolol 7.5mg , I'm told by someone this might be the reason why .
However , since base rate alteration to 60 , I've been struggling at the gym - or is it my imagination ??

I had a pacemaker when I was 11. I never once thought I wasn't a 'normal kid' nor was I ever treated differently because of it. I could do everything all my friends were doing; I just happened to have a battery attached to my heart to help it work.
