After nearly 18 months with my dual chamber pacemaker set at 60bpm, my electrophysiologist today said there was no reason to continue my atrial pacing. My pacing in the upper chamber was roughly 75% but that was because my set rate was 10 bpm higher than my intrinsic and the historic data provided by my PM showed there were no abnormal beats to be concerned with in a lower rate
So, beginning today it’s all me!! He set my low threshold at 45 bpm. My question is. Does anyone know what I should expect as my body reaclimates to a lower bpm. Today Im feeling a mild frontal headache. Can’t tell if that is even part of this change. But it makes sense. I’m hoping to finally get a complete night’s sleep.
