Hi all. I havent posted in a while...im having some problems again. It seems im okay for a while and then all of a sudden things happen again. Im 24. Have a pacemaker for 1 and half years. I've been told i have cardiogenic syncope for which i take medication and i have not had a fainting episode since i started medication like 6 months ago. Yesterday i tried to get out of bed and i was severely dizzy that i had to lay back down. Even when i was laying down i felt very dizzy. It took about 10 tries of getting up and walking a bit but i had to hurry up and lay down again because i was afraid i would pass out. My heart rate was a little fast and pounding hard, and my legs kept shaking every time i tried to walk. I called my doc but he is on vacation so i left a message with his nurse practitioner to give me a call right away....she never did. So today i felt much better except for like 30 hour ago i was reaching for a napkin in my cupboard and i felt lightheaded and my face was all tingly. My heart was skipping beats( it does that sometimes). Has anyone had anything like this happen? Should i worry or just let it go? I feel fine now. And the nurse never called so maybe she doesnt thing this is urgent. Anyway, please give me your imput and advice. God bless.

Lifetime warranty no longer gives peace of mind.
I'm 35 and got my pacemaker a little over a year ago. It definitely is not a burden to me. In fact, I have more energy (which my husband enjoys), can do more things with my kids and have weight because of having the energy.
