SUDDEN BPM INCREASE
I had a duel lead pacemaker fitted in 2006, replaced in 2012, and now has 15 months battery life left. Since 2017 I have suffered with AF controlled by medication.
After feeling unwell for sometime and a pacemaker check up I have now been told that between 2nd February, 2019 and 24th March, 2019, my pacemaker intervened due to detecting a reaction bewtween my two upper heart chambers and set my resting pace at 120 BPM.
I naturally felt dreadful due to the fixed setting, but it has now been reset and seems to be working correctly at a resting rate of 68 as it was previously..
As a consequence I am waiting for a Echo cardiogram to ascertain any damage caused.
Has anybody experienced a similar event, or can explain the situation, the clinic I attend only answer questions, they dont tell you anything, so unless you ask you dont know..
