Is this normal?

I am going to have a PM implanted at the end of January for 3rd Degree AV Block. I wasnt feeling too bad when this all started, however I did occasionally feel like i might pass out. But, now for the past week I have been extremely run down and weak. I've been sleeping for almost 2 days straight. Is this normal?

Your symptoms are consistent with AV block and perhaps the condition has progressed further.

The good news is that it is entirely fixable by an implant. Make sure you direct these and any other  questions to your EP. Hopefully you'll feel much better after the implant.

So I called my Dr. Today and rather than wait till the 29th they pushed it forward to the 15th

Hope it goes well!

Hope your implant and recovery are smooth and uneventful!

Please do report back and ask any further questions you may have.

Yeah I'm definitely doing that I am actually in the process tomorrow I'm moving out a Loa Utah up to Price Utah. So that I can be with my girlfriend and get on with my life and start doing good. I've got a job waiting for me when I get there and recovered. Things are really looking up for me once I get this p.m. in. Thank you for your concern!

Had very similar experiences as you. Frequently felt light headed. Could sleep all day. Eventually fainted after climbing stairs, ended up in hospital with AV block. They followed up with stress test to make sure there were no other problems with arterial blood supply to my heart. Next day did pacemaker implant. In recovery now but cured of feeling faint + over tired. Good luck with your procedure.
