Just joined this site as I had a pacemaker fitted last week - a BIG shock seeing as though I'm 27!
I have a history of black outs & had a loop recorder implanted a year ago. I blacked out on a packed train (I pick my moments!) last week & recorded my heart rate. When I went to the hospital on the monday for a reading they found that my heart stopped for around 20-26 seconds & i had an emergency pacemaker fitted on the Wednesday. I just wondered if anyone had the same symptoms & if this is a long time for a pause.
