Hi. My husband had his pacemaker fitted nearly 2 years ago. He has had a cough since November. Chest X-ray in February showed clear. Covid meant it just about impossible to be seen. A gp surgery nurse phoned him after I'd contacted them saying he couldn't eat or sleep, he's so worn out. She, disappointingly, prescribed lansoprasole to try and stop the acid in his mouth through coughing so much. Mostly he's bringing up clear frothy phlegm.
lately, I've seen him cough when sat down and shoot back into the chair with such force he kicks tables or the small bin next to him. He doesn't seem to know he's done it.
I'm wondering is this his pacemaker kicking in with the force of the cough and shocking him backwards?
