Irregular after Pacemaker
I had a pacemaker and an AV node ablation four years ago and have had a lovely trouble free time ever since..... until a couple of weeks ago, when I suddenly felt faint, my legs went jelly and I just made it back to the car where I was short of breath and had some chest pains. Both my husband and self felt an irregular pulse - not fast but stopping and double beat starting type. This lasted a couple of hours before normality. I previously had a few years of trouble with atrial fibrillation to know that this felt the same with all the old former symptoms and feelings.
So I went to the Pacing Clinic where they did a printout showing that period and - NOTHING! However they did do my blood pressure and found it to be extremely high and gave emergency medication and that is also now normal. I am now very confused as I am convinced that the attack wasn't from hypertension but was a cardiac event. Is it possible the pacemaker printout missed it or must I accept it was hypertension (my two medically trained children say that raised BP doesn't produce those symptoms).
