PVCs/PACs - Settings
I've had a biotronik single chamber for bradycardia set to 60/50 am/pm since August 2015. Last May 20 it was changed 50bpm 24/7 without complications. In mid-June following an extremely painful and stressful dental health scare, I started to have what sound like PVCs or PACs, a heavy thump followed by what feels like a skipped beat. It was happening a few times a day, mostly a few at a time, sometimes up to about 10 in a row. But when I went for a walk a few days ago they were almost constant for more than hour, before subsiding to minor episodes for the next two days. Yesterday they nearly constant for 20-30 minutes when starting a walk, before mostly subsiding for the day. My blood pressure has generally been in the low 100's over upper 50's to low 60's, and mid-50s to mid-60s bpm. With no noticeable onset of anxiety, dizziness, brain fog, dehydration, etc. I'm wondering if anyone has experienced anything like this from a change of settings, and what the experts here might advise. I'm one of those set-it-and-try-to-forget-it type of pm recipients. But is great to have this forum to turn to when things get weird. Any comments would be appreciated. ~Rod

I am not planning on letting any of this shorten my life. I am planning on living a long happy battery operated life. You never know maybe it will keep me alive longer. I sure know one thing I would have been dead before starting school without it.
