New pacemaker

I have just had a pacemaker fitted 2 weeks ago. I feel very tired, still feel I have a palpitation under left breast and slightly dizzy on and off.

my device has been checked and settings adjusted they tell me it's working fine, so why do I feel like I do?

It's early days for you and you will still feel tired it's a shock to your body at first but the dizzy spells are a issue you shouldn't be getting these, keep a diary of dates and times you feel dizzy don't be afraid to keep calling your team, it's not right too be dizzy they just need to get the settings right may take a few adjustment before it's spot on 

You know you're wired when...

You can hear your heartbeat in your cell phone.

I am 100% pacemaker dependant and have been all my life. I try not to think about how a little metal box keeps me alive - it would drive me crazy. So I lead a very active life.
