I am a very active 58 year old woman who received a PM in late February 2020 due to Bradycardia and arrhythmia. The PM is set to a minimum of 60 bpm. While overall, I think things are fine, I've noticed lately that my legs are constantly tired and fatigued, I am having trouble catching my breath even after simple activities, my resting heartrate last week was consistently in the low 50's and my heartrate drops into the 40's during the day (it spikes up to 150-200 almost daily) Due to lockdown here in Spain, I've not been to see the doctor for any follow-up visits since implantation (and they don't do remote monitoring). I've been trying to get an appointment but (again) due to lockdown, they are very far behind and I've not been able to confirm an appointment. Can anyone tell me if what I am feeling is normal and/or is it normal for my heartrate to go low when it's set at 60? I am thinking the PM needs to be reset...... ???
You know you're wired when...
You always run anti-virus software.
At age 20, I will be getting a pacemaker in few weeks along with an SA node ablation. This opportunity may change a five year prognosis into a normal life span! I look forward to being a little old lady with a wicked cane!
