Pulse rate during exercise
Prior to my implant it would take a prolonged period of jogging for my heart rate to get to 135 bpm. I had my implant 7 weeks ago and apparently my CRT is set to active, but my heart rate gets to my cut off rate of 145 in literally minutes.
Did I get that much out of shape in 8 weeks? Could this be a programming issue? My Doctor tells me my pulse is reacting on its own to the exercise, but this does not feel right.
I would appreciate any insight anyone may have.
