10 to the hour
I had a PM fitted at the end of May for bradycardia and sinus pause. Since the PM has been fiited I have experienced my heart beating hard at ten to the hour a few hours during the day. It always happens at the same time and it feels as though my heart it beating very strong out of my chest (not any faster just stronger) and sometimes it feels like it misses a beat and makes me cough. It settles down after a few minutes and I have even asked my husband to feel my chest when it's happening to see if he notices the difference and he can feel it too.
When I first went back to the department two weeks after my PM was fitted they told me that I was simply feeling when the PM was kicking in because I am young and that I would stop noticing it as time went on. However, I have felt it every single day since and I have even felt this happening straight after a work out and it's happening at ten to the hour every time so I'm not sure I agree with this?
I was wondering whether anyone else had experienced this at all or something similar? I have a follow up in a couple of weeks time but it would be good to know if anyone else has had the same problem or if anyone knows what it could be? The only other thing I could imagine it could be is the PM testing itself maybe
