before my first pacemaker in 2001, i had to be careful when and what i ate, because any sinus pressure (from burps, flatulence, etc.) would cause sinus pauses. exercise after a meal was out.
my first two pacemakers seemed to make me more tolerant of digestive goings on.
this third pacemaker, which has the same settings as the second, doesn't seem to be like that. i'm constantly troubled by what feel like pauses and bumps and just a variety of heart feelings.
i asked if we could make the settings a little less reactive, but the clinic said i should have the digestive stuff checked out. i got an endoscopy yesterday and i may or may not have problems, but my real discomfort is the heart not the stomach.
i can be sitting quietly and then get up and my pulse jumps up. uncomfortable.
my question is, is it reasonable/possible for my device settings to be changed to make this ceaseless discomfort be eased.
(i get some pvcs, which are uncomfortable and the techhnicians swear that no matter what i feel with my finger on my pulse, i'm not really getting pauses.)
