Well, happy to still be here. I was having frequent dizziness and occasional slight pinching at the right side of the heart. My PA had me wear the ZIO patch, (an exterior heart monitor), for almost 14 days. A couple days after mailing in the patch for evaluation, the results came in. 3 times in 8 days my heart had stopped while sleeping. The maximum stoppage was 10.7 seconds. I was called while driving to go to ER, like real soon, and get evaluated. I was admitted within an hour. Observation for 24 hours, and a PM was diagnosed to be implanted.
