Night time issues
I had my pm implanted on January 28 due to type 3 congenital heart block. Due to haviing a heart rate of 37 at the age of 42 my cardiologist recommended that I have the surgery. Also previously in Dec. 2017 I suffered from a stroke. After making a full recovery, thank God in November 2018 I had my first seizure. I had another seizure in January 2019 therefore I elected to go through with having the surgery. I was told my my cardiologist that the surgery will increase my heart rate and therefore relieve the seizures. Wrong Answer. After the surgery I continued to have seizures in February, March, and April respectively. Now I am on medication for the seizures and they have stoppped. Just recently since the temperature has increased, this has impacted my blood pressure to increase and make my pacemaker work harder. I keep myself hydrated and in moderate temperatues, but lately during night time around 2 am every night i feel as if i am short of breath, having palpations, and dizzy. This also occurs during the day time occassionally, but for the past 3 weeks every night I have the same issues. It feels as if i cant breathe, my heart is racing at times, it hurts also, that i am going to pass away, and i cant sleep. I called my cardiologist and he recommended I go to the ER. I dont want to go to the ER and they tell me everything looks fine. I have been there and done that already. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
