Pacemaker Event Sensations
Hi--I just had a Medtronic PM implanted in late Feb just in advance of the world changing due to COVID 19. Initially, I was feeling various sensations that I assumed were normal for a new implant. But now, I am experiencing a "jolt" like sensation every morning at 2:00am. The time doiesn't vary--always exactly 2:00am. I called Medtronic and a tech said that their device is programmed to diagnose certain aspects of the PM performance at 2:15am daily and that maybe my PM clock is off. Whatever, the bigger issue is that the jolt is enough to wake me up and, recently, prevent me from going to sleep at all because I'm anticipating the event. I got in to the cardiologist's office within a couple of days and he had never heard of this kind of complaint. He called Medtronic and the person he talked to also had never heard of this complaint.despite my informing him of my previous conversation with his company.
Has anyone else experienced a similar situation? My lack of sleep is starting to be an issue!
Thanks in advance
