Just had my 4th ablation. this time an AV Node Ablation. My heart rate has been going from the 80s up to 100 and down to 50. No one seems to be particularly worried, except for me!! Does anyone have an thoughts, information, etc.
See response below on 5/4 - you're all so dear. Thank you!
I'm new and had my dual lead Metronics Azure pacer implant in January. Briefly, without taking into account so many factors, the hospital did everything they could to ensure I had an unnecessary pacemaker installed. Yes - unncessary. I did not want it. I wanted another opinion, and they were ridiculous. Putting a patient with a significant loss of muscle tone on a tread...
Got my pacemaker implantation surgery done 12 days ago. Since then, I am always feeling anxious. I am 28 Year old. This thing is basically making me a mental patient. So many questions are going through my mind. After the implementation, I started to feel the problem which I used to feel before the surgery and rushed to the hospital. Doctor did an ECG test and said that my heart beat is high. It's around 120 and this is the reason I was getting the symptoms again. But the symptoms intensi...
New here, just had a pacemaker implanted about 8.5 weeks ago, I believe, due to right & left bundle branch blockages that were discovered during a cardiac ablation procedure.
Since having the pacemaker implanted, I now feel worse than I did before. I have chest pain frequently (I've been hospitalized for it once), I'm so short of breath that daily activities of living such as washing dishes, swapping laundry from the washer to the dryer or walking around our small neigh...
I just had pacemaker extraction! They upgraded my pacemaker to a defibulater. Now if I have any incidents, it will send a shock. FIRST question, I'm on 2 new medicines that I've never taken before, a beta blocker called carvedil (COREG) for heart rhythm, the other spironolactone(ALDACTONE) a water pill for heart. One of these two is making my tinnitus worse, very loud and thumping, also dry cough, stuffy nose, not sleeping well and when I awake, I'm...

I lost my previous account and return now with a new account
My mother is uneducated. That is why I myself this created account.
One year ago my mother infected by arithmia( tachycardia). She is 65 years old. Along 7 months she experienced 3 time fast heart rate. Then In fourth time, after 12 hour heart fast rate she had heart failure. When we carried him to hasp...
I had my CRT-D replaced last November and since then I have had 3 flair ups of infection in the implant site. So they are now going to monitor the next flair up which more than likely will occur in the next few days now that I finished the antibiotics. So they are talking about a site change and system swap out which includes the three leads. One lead has been in for 14 years and the other 2 for 7 years. Admittedly the lead swap out was a bit of a suprise and worrying!...
Has anyone experience flutters /spasms in your diaphragm that is related to you pacemaker ? I srted having them 6 months after my Medtronic biventricular pacemaker was put in. I am 100% paced , ventrically. Both my internist and neurologist say it's pacemaker related...my electrophysiologist says it is not. I have had every test their is to test triggers , with no luck.
I have had a tighness in the neck & prominent jugular veins for 2-3 weeks. I've had a CT scan that was clear. I'm obviously not imagining the symptoms. I wondered if any one has any ideas of what this may be? I have a single lead ICD with a lead revision 6 months ago after a failure.
I had my pm on 2/6. I may have to have an upper endoscopy soon with twilight anesthesia. Has anyone had one performed at a GI center and not at a hospital?
Thankyou all for responding to my concern. I cant wait to increase my fitness and this forum definately inspires me.
Wondering if anyone with a meditronic device has used the Garmin and if so did they have any known problems?
I want to track distance and time for motivation.
Would really appreciate hearing .

implantation May 2022, resting heart rate 24 at implant
I used pacemaker 100% of the time for first 6 months
now I am using 66% of the time, dr is perplexed about why
Prior to the pacemaker I was having severe mood swings and irritability. I did not know that I had bradycardia for likely over a year. My doctor has since told me that it was related to underlying heart condition and the COVID-19 va...
I will be due for my upper endoscopy in early 2024. With a PM, is it safe to have the procedure done at the Doctor's GI center, or should it be done at the hospital as an outpatient?---in case the unthinkable happens, the resources are closer.
I had my pm mplanted in February and am a little nervous.
How soon after pm placement is it ok to have a mamogram?
I am the "proud" owner of a PM 2272 that is on the recall list of PMs that possibly were not glued together using the correct process AND I am going to need an MRI done. Anybody had an MRI done with an implanted RECALLED PM 2272? My concern is that heat buildup from the MRI on the PM 2272 might cause the possibly incorrectly glued parts to loosen and leak. Abbott says don't worry, they are monitoring for evidence that it is leaking. However, since I pace 98% of...
Hello, everyone! I am new here, and am grateful for all of you who are posting with information!
I had a pacemaker implant two weeks ago. I suffered from tachycardia for many years, and then tachycardia/bradycardia syndrome, heart block, sinus node dysfunction and diastolic heart failure.
I had my first check up a week ago, and leads and interrogations all looked good. My concern is that I have had twitching in my right eye since my implant. The...
I have never felt worse since getting a pacemaker defibrillator inserted. Continuous muscle twitches in left arm. I am told by my Experts that it is not caused by my operation, even though I never had problems before. Just fed up not sure best action I have had 75 good years so
Every morning before I get up, I have a "sinking, feeling of doom" problem. I have thought it was because I just was not a morning person. It is really depressing and I only feel better after coffee! I have had PM for 4 years and just posted another message on a question of why? my resting HR which is set to stay above 70, has been creeping down to 67, 68 and 69 this week??? i am 82 and in good health, exercise 6 days a week, Curves and GYM treadmi...
I posted on here the frustrations in getting the cardio physiologists to accept my readings of 32 BPM with a pacemaker set to a minimum of 60 BPM.
I was feeling really rough when it happened light-headed and dizzy and initially, they said I would have to put up with it.
Not willing to accept that outcome I contacted the GP surgery and pursued it as a referral through them.
Yesterday the cardio people were still saying I was stuck with it, but they would ask one of the consul...
You know you're wired when...
A thirty-day guarantee is not good enough.
A pacemaker suddenly quitting is no more likely to happen than you are to be struck by lightening.
