Re: energy level
I just had a pacemaker put in on 12/13/18. I have intermittent heart block. I was wearing a Holter monitor because I was feeling lightheaded and the Holter picked up a 10 second pause while I was sleeping. The cardiologist I went to said he wasn’t concerned because it happened when I was sleeping. I then wore a Zio patch for a month and nothing happened. I was away one weekend and went to an art show and felt like I was going to pass out. I got nervous called my doctor and she put on another Holter monitor. That night while falling asleep I had another 10 second pause. This is when they told me I needed a pacemaker.
My question is, I feel really tired and I don’t have any energy since the pacemaker. It’s been about two weeks and I have a follow up in another couple of weeks. I used to be very athletic, weightlifting. I’m having a hard time coping I’m wondering if anyone else felt tired after the pacemaker.
