Feel out of balance

I am coming up to the start of my third week of recovery, and it seems like at nite time that I feel out of balance. Not sure if thats normal or not. Has anyone ever felt like they are out of balance later in the evening?

Feeling out of balance...

Could be the fact that your pm is new, and that you are still uncertain of it. I know when I first had the pm inplanted, I could not stop wondering when the problems where going to start. That subsided in time, as it will with you.

I know all too well the feeling of being imbalanced. I have had a pacemaker since I was 36...17 years ago. The time that I have been over balance have been totally unrelated to the pacer. Ask your doctor to check you for a middle ear infection. Lots of times you don't have pain but fluid in your ear. This causes you to have vertigo. They do have a medicine to help. I have had several bouts of this over the years. Hang in there it does get better.

Just to ease your mind about the unbalance feelings. I've been through the unbalance feelings and I'm still going through them from time to time. There are over 2000 things that could make you feel unbalance this feeling may or may not be related to your heart.
I remember being so unbalanced that I couldn't even walk. I also remember having the room spinning. The first thing I thought about was my pacemaker wasn't doing it's job. I was upset of the unbalanced feelings not going away fast enough. But in time as I've gone through the emmotion concerns about the unbalanced feelings, it went away.
Couple of things to keep in mind. Read up on your side effects of any medicine your taking and have your ears check as an ear infection can also cause unbalanced feelings.

well I meant to say more bbbut couldn't cause my dogs barking at the mail man, my paper boy is pod cause I only gace him 10.00 and the squirrels feed are angry cause I went to work for a while. I'm suing a used car dealer, his lawyer keeps saying I ain't got a chance, called his l;awyer a dirty name, now bar association says I can't do that, I insist I can if it's true, they say I can't provve it, I sent thema letter he sent me tellin me he's been repping car dealers 30 years, and that makes it true. Now he's sued me and well, hey MMerry Christmass
