21 year old non-congenital heart block
I am a new member and wanted to share my story for anyone who might relate or benefit from it. Last December of 2018, I was diagnosed with non-congenital complete heart block at the age of 20 with the only symptoms of extremely low heart rate and constant fatigue. By February of 2019 I underwent pacemaker implant surgery as symptoms were beginning become more severe. The cause of the heart block was never found byt since my surgery, I have felt 100% better with more energy and a heart rate that remains above 50 bpm. I was terrified before the procedure but am now so thankful for it and often forget the pacemaker is even there.
