Exercise and rate response.
I received my PM in April this year and still getting used to it. It was implanted for bradycardia and Afib. I’ve had several adjustments to make the rate response less sensitive and a lower target heart rate. For a while I was feeling awful when riding in a bumpy car/boat or just taking a flight of stairs. That has pretty much subsided, once they lowered the sensitivity (I think it’s set as low as it will go) and set the upper max rate to 120, any higher is up to my natural signal.
My problem now is fatigue, short of breath, excess sweating, and dizzy when I exercise (I play in a table tennis club, I’m 58). Seems like after a couple of matches, I’m spent. Is it the meds? 100 mg Flecanide, 25 mg metoprolol 2X day.
Anyone else been through something similar?
