Is a lead bad? That's the only reason I can think it would suddenly start to do that. They should be able to tell from the interrogation report. Are you talking directly to the doctor or going through nurses/techs?

Not much to go off but this really depends if the shocks are appropriate or not. If yes then medication optimisation and general clinical overview should be offered. Unfortunately despite the above shocks till may occur.
