Heart rate dipping when paced
So I am now 7 weeks post op.. I have noticed since I had the device fitted that whenever I am being paced my heart rate drops to the base limit, or near (50bpm) then suddenly increases again.
I decided to do a bit of power walking today and my heart rate went from 108bpm to 50bpm within seconds. Surely this can't be good for my heart?
I was on VVI pacing but now on DDD as I was having terrible palpitations and dizzyness. Turns out that VVI pacing can cause heart failure symptoms and the EP was confused as to why I was even put on this mode.
Anyway the long story short is I have had this dip in heart rate in both settings.
Any advice and is this normal?
