The last couple of years have been mostly up with some downs. I am fitted with dual chamber PM since 2019 for Heart Bloc 2:1
However the last couple of weeks have been pretty rough. I am suffering from lethargy & tiredness, occasional night sweat, muscle weakness in calves & thighs (when not exercising & exercising), discomfort in the chest, headaches & dizzness.
I attended hospital yesterday, had a PM integration (some bouts of Afib were picked up but they only occurred on Saturdays when I tend to have a few beers with mates) & an echocardiogram nothing was picked that worried the Dr .
I now have a holter monitor on for 24 hrs to see if that catches anything the PM isn't & will do some blood work today.
The EP at the hospital doesn't seem to think anything is off, however I went for 4km walk today and was not in a great state during. Very sensitive to the act of exercise including sounds & noises around me.
I felt better after some food & rest.
I have to add the muscle fatigue isn't like when I was first diagnosed, when I would do exercise I would get a burning in my legs & stomach / chest area, near stopping me being able to exercise entirely.
This time the muscles feel slightly sore & ache.
Any suggestion as to what other examinations could be preformed to find the cause would be incredibly helpfull.
I have a follow up tomorrow
The Doctor wants to do an ECG & look over my blood work.
I was thinking to ask for an X-ray to see if there is any issue with lead displacement.
Any suggestions would be appreciated
