I have Bradycardia and have lived with afib for more than a decade. So far, I've had two ablations and two cardioversions, the latest about three years ago. I'm now in afib again, and all I know at this point is that my PM is prompting the ventrical to beat. My current cardiologist (not an EB) concealed from me this fact when a remote download showed it.
I've no idea what my resting HR is, as we set my PM to prevent rates lower than that. When I check my Garmin, my overnight HR is flat on 45. My heart responds well to exercise, and I cycle about 3,000 miles a year.
I'd like another cardioversion, as I feel tired and have to force myself to get on my bike, Am I unreasonable to want another cardioversion when I'm doing "okay" without it? I've an appointment with an EB next week to talk about it.
You know you're wired when...

Your anxiety is normal. It takes some of us a little time to adjust to the new friend. As much as they love you, family and friends without a device just cannot understand the adjustment we go through. That is why this site is so valuable.
