Earthquake and ICD
I got a ICD implanted 18 months ago, never got a schock. I am 53.
Recently I have been in the Alps and climbed the Montblanc without any incidence or ICD issue.
Before the climb I was of course following a somehow demanding training. No problems have arisen.
Two days after the summit I was riding a e-bike, doing 1/3 of the fatigue I did in previous days, having no symptoms of tachy, breathing normally and nevertheless I got a shock. My first shock actually after being implanted. Of course I simply blamed myself since apparently I just went over my limits.
Few days after, we figure out that at the very same time I had the shock, there was a earthquake in the region. I have been looking for information regarding this particular issue, but I have found nothing. Can be just a matter of chance?
Any similar experience or information about this possible interference? Could the fact I was riding a e-bike make the interference worse?
Thanks in advance. Every info will be welcomed before having an interview with my cardiologist.
