New to the Club
Just received PM this past Monday. Was diagnosed with tachy/brady, with several AFib bouts in the past few months. I’m 58, played soccer most my life, and consider myself to be in good shape. All cardiac test indicated no valve, artery, or structural issues. Only lighter in the wallet.
Hard to get used to 60 bpm rest setting when I was “normally” 48-52 or even less. I still get arrhythmia several times a day, which never fails to scare the shit out of me, but it only lasts a beat or two or a few seconds. Still somewhat lightheaded, dizzy, and short of breath. Can’t say I’ve seen a marked improvement in this.
New symptom, since implant, is a throbbing in neck and head when I bend over. Seem to have increased chest pressure also, particularly when I lie down. Lastly, I really feel my heart beating now. Does this pounding feeling subside?
Any comments from the vets?
