Pacemaker or purely coincidence?
Good Evening, All. I had a strange thing happen today at work, possibly pacemaker related. Or not. I just know its a first for me. I have a PM for 1.5 years due to complete heart block. I am very athletic, have always been. Today at work I took a quick break and walked down 10 flights of stairs to another building to treat myself to a tea latte. On the way back I suddenly felt a little tired, I wouldn't say it was substantial, but definitely there. I thought it might have been just a low blood sugar feeling (hadn't had the tea yet). Got back to my office and I felt fine. Then I felt a whooshing in the area of my PM. Had not felt something this significant with the pm before. Immediately I looked at my fitbit and tried to do an ekg, the tracing was crazy and I got some error messages to keep still. Then my fitbit went into reset mode by itself. After it had reset and synced with my phone, which was a few minutes later I was able to take an ekg which came out as normal sinus rhythm. My question is - Is it possible my PM kicked in and caught an extremely low HR and then zapped my fitbit? My fitbit is on a setting to notify me of abnormal heart rhythms so I thought maybe it was possible, Anyways I lived to tell the tale, so I guess all functioned as it should but just wondering if anyone experienced similar with a fit bit or apple watch. Also if that feeling by by PM was it kicking in?

I am just grateful to God that I lived long enough to have my ICD put in. So many people are not as lucky as us; even though we sometimes don't feel lucky.
