Hi. I am 9 weeks post pm insertion. I went to my 1st concert since getting pm and I had a ticket in the pit. The 1st act was extremely loud and I think my pm was sensing according to the music beat..it was very strange and not a good feeling. Fortunately the main band and back were not loud and were enjoyable. I am wondering if others experienced what seemed like a pm sensing to the music. As I mentioned the 1st act only was the outlier rest of evening was great!
I have been seeing a chiropractor for a month. She uses an adjustable table. My latest pacemaker report indicates I went from 1% Afib to 60%. Is there a connection? Just wondering.
Had my pacemaker put in in 2014, checked every year and in Feb 2021 I still had 11 years left on my battery. When I went to clinic last week they said I had 4 years left, they said my battery is being drained by interference, they were able to tell me the date it started which was 11 December 2021, this was the day I moved into my new rental house, the hospital advised me to get the wiring checked in the house, has anyone heard anything like this before, my husband is an electrician and he...
I've used a Polar T31 chest transmitter strap for years to monitor my heart-rate, both outside and also on my exercise bike with the monitor 'watch' screen fastened on the handlebars (the built-in system on the bike is unreliable). I've recently had a pacemaker fitted, but haven't so far risked using the chest transmitter, because its left-hand sensor would be almost exactly over the PM. Polar says there SHOULDN'T be any interference, but phras...
I have sold my Yamaha MT-09 motorcycle which gave me no problems and I am pace dependent.
I am looking at electric motorcycles and wonder if anyone has experience with them from the interference point of view. The motors tend to have substantial permanent magnets and I am trying to find out if they are well shielded.
Any comments from those who already ride one would be handy.
Good evening. I received a PM 4 weeks ago. Will be starting red light therapy next week and wondering if this can interfere with the PM. Does anyone have any experience with this?
I'm sure this has been covered in previous posts but I wanted specific info regarding my circumstance. I have no knowledge or experience of electricity or electromegantic fields so information on the internet is difficult for me to understand!
We have a static caravan which is situated next to a farmers field. Directly behind us is an 11kV overhead power line( I think) on a wooden pole which goes along the back of the site. The lines must be 5m above ground I'm guessing but my b...
I'm a new Biotronik pacemaker recipient . Our Sleep Number bed has a motor which causes the head and foot of the bed to lift, and also to vibrate. Does anyone know if this motor will create interference with my pacemaker? Thx, Mike

I've been considering buying a device for my skin that combines red light therapy alongside heat therapy. It is a hand held wand. It says in small print do not use with heart condition but not sure if it's similar to not using an induction job which I now use all the time? Any advice appreciated
Hi. I have had a pacemaker since 2017 for a problem with heartrate dropping too low and stopping. I am getting a medical alert system from MobileHelp called Mini. I first got there system which did not have fall detection or voice contact on necklace and had to carry a seperate unit when out of the house that also had gps, fall detection and voice. I decided it was hard to use and asked about their new unit that contained all of those you wear around your neck. T...
Hello, I am 43 years old, I have a pacemaker on my left side and I have been diagnosed with breast cancer on my left breast.
The radiation oncology told me that I won't be able to have radiation with the pacemaker and I will have to move it to the other side. I am terrified. I am 100% paced for heart block third degree.
Do you have any experience with this? Were you able to get radiation therapy close to the PM?
thabk you so much

Has anyone worked retail, where the bottle lock magnet is on the counter not far from you? Any experience with interference from these magnets?
