Shocking Lead Testing

I had my 5th Medtronic PM generator implanted in Nov.2018. Every morning at 3:41am a test is run on one of my leads. I am not supposed to feel it however it shocks me awake and runs for 5+ minutes. This was reported immediately to my doctor. During an interrogation my the techs said this test was turned off. However every morning at 3:41am I am shocked awake. The tech assures me that this test was turned off. I have sent a video of my chest pulsing during this nightly event to document that it is still running. They seem puzzled as to what to do next and are not responding to calls and emails. Any ideas?

Sounds like you need to have your PM techs get Medtronic involved.  I'd be camped out on their doorstep with torches and pitchforks at the ready.
