Missing beats, early morning.
I am starting this new thread because I didn't want to hijack Lavender's thread below. However, Gemita's response to Lavender touches on a subject that I have woken up worrying about - a coincidence!
Just recently, I have noticed that when laying half awake in bed in the morning, I can hear my heart beating - a shushing sound in my ears. I am not worried about this, but the rhythm I am hearing is unsettling.
After about 10 or 15 beats there is a definite pause before the next beat arrives. As you can imagine, it grabs my full attention. I have not checked this out with my heart-rate monitor to get a fuller picture, but I will.
My question is, could this be a consequence of my night-time HR falling below the 50 bpm minimum set on my PM and the PM intervening? Would such an intervention manifest like that? I wouldn't have expected a delay if it was trying to raise my HR.( For info., I have complete heart block but my sinus node is competent. The PM operates in DDD mode.)
I have searched the forums but could not find this precise issue.
