Rate response settings
After no settings changes after 90 day check up on my dual lead St Jude PM, I had a video appointment with my Cardiologist the next week. He decided to tell the tech to raise my HR from 60 top 70 and make rate response more sensitive. It seems my legs have more strength and I’m less fatigued. But, one of the changes or the other has me wondering. I was just riding in my golf cart not playing just watching...I followed my buddies foursome about 4 holes and it was on some really rough terrain. I started getting a hollow, spasm feeling in my chest and all of a sudden head rush with ears stopping up pretty severely. I left immediately and tried to go slow and not hit any more bumps. I made it home and later that afternoon mowed grass on my lawn tractor..after a little mowing I was starting to have the same feeling so quit mowing.. would the move to 70 BPM or the more sensitive rate response be responsible. I’ve been mowing For several months with no problems. What should I tell the tech and docs. Also could to sensitive rate response make me have a problem when I get up from my recliner. Any input, especially from someone who understands rate response and BPM changes would be appreciated.
