Hi-I'm new to this club/forum. I'm 75, on my 2nd pm after 6 years on the first. It's only a backup, as I have an electrical prob. leading to bradycardia and fainting, so it's set at 60.
My pulse rarely goes over 80 but I have 2 different situations:
1. When I lie down to go to sleep, often my pulse will drop to 46 to 50 for a while; deep breathing will get it back up again.
When I wake up in the morning sometimes it's also in the 40's.
2. Occasionally while working at my laptop my heart will begin to race for no good reason I get up or back off for a minute or two and it's back to normal again.
The pm tech says the slow beat is actually a double beat, but I swear it is only one, steady and slow. Any ideas? Is the laptop emitting signals that interfere with my pm?
I have an Symphony DR 2550 by ELA medical, a new version of my old pm. My follow-up checkups show it working OK.
