My Medtronic device was replaced sept17 from dual to a single chamber. Since May I have been experiencing up to 170 BPM to a low of 35. My pacemaker is set to 60 as resting. These irregularities seem to happen mostly early morning around 4:00 a.m. until perhaps 10:00. the rest of the day is relatively normal.
With the dual chamber things ran smoothly but a resulting infection necessitated the total removal and replacement.
My meds are Bisoprolol 5mg and this week started taking Eliquis 5mg as I have had a few AFib scenes which has my GP on the jumping side. I’ve been on the waiting list since May for my Internist the appointment is scheduled for August 11.
Now here is the weirder part. I believe I have extra electrical currents cursing through my 80 year old body as I’ve never been able to wear an expensive watch as they kick out after a day or two. My electrics was the explanation. I now have an Iwatch which works perfectly and is 98% accurate in recording BPM etc, BUT do you think it possible the watch could be creating these irregularities? Medronics says not, stating it is the charger that is an issue, not the watch.
Any thoughts or suggestions would be hugely appreciated!!
