Dizziness & Fatigue
Recently had some issues with dizziness & lethargy
Had a PM intergation, 24 Hr Holter Monitor, Echocardiogram & blood work preformed.
The PM only picked up short episodes of AFib on Saturdays when out drinking beer with mates. (Over the months since my last intergation, no other periods or arrhythmias were picked up)
The 24 hour monitor didnt pick up any periods of AFib or other arrhythmias only a few ectopic beats. Only that my heart rate was tracking fairly high when out walking in the 140-150 range.
The blood work did show high levels of cholesterol but low NT-pro BNP levels & electrolytes were stable.
The echo confirmed the structure of the heart was fine & the PM leads were insitu, Ejection faction of 45% (lowish but dr was happy as other indicators of structure were healthy)
I was told everything is fine, however my dizziness is present throughout the day & not related to sitting / standing, as is my fatigue.
I am going back in for an ECG ( not sure what will be found if they didn't pick anything up with the Holter), I have also requested a stress test to be 100% as I just don't feel good at all.
I had my PM for 2.5 years, up until 2 months ago I was a fit as I have been in 10 years. Now I am struggling with the basics.
I am just obviously very frustrated & uncertain as why things have changed suddenly. This is a bit of a repost but now backed up with some flesh on the bones of my actual situation.
I am concerned I will be told all is well & sent packing, is there anything critical that I am missing and should be focusing /asking the EP when we meet?
I have 2:1 AV Block & a Dual Chamber PM.
Any advice would be very helpful
Thanks in advance
You know you're wired when...
You prefer rechargeable batteries.
It made a HUGE difference in my life. Once I got it, I was finally able to run, and ride my bike long distances.
