New to PMC

Active and in good health after only 3 or 4 days of feeling a little dizzy and faint on Feb 28, 2007 I actually fainted at a site just 2 miles from St. Lukes (Mayo) Hospital. Fortunately my wife was with me and able to drive me to the Hospital. I walked into the ER and blacked out for real at the ER desk. When the EMT tried to take my vitals there was no pulse and he began Chest compression. Within minutes I was wheeled into the ER and had several attendants treating me and they called for the C...

Pacemaker update

To all that have helped me I say a big thank you for all your help!!!
If interested pleas reference "Told I need a pacemaker" posting
I have just returned from a specialist in arrhythmias and he reviewed my file and determined that I do not need a pacemaker..although the future may bring differern circumstances but not now. He said due to my heightened vagal tone and active lifestyle I am seeing dropped beats at night. The vagal tone he said is more active at night that is why my holt...

a blessing

Saturday morning when I went to religious services at my synagogue I asked my Rabbi if there was a prayer that one gets for getting a pacemaker. He thought for a moment and said, "tick tick, tick tick, tick tick." One more for Blakes next book. AmyMarla

A similar topic

Hi Guys,

I have been reading your posts with interest. I am flying to Naples from the UK in a couple of months time. It is the first time I have flown since I've had my pacemaker and I'm a little nervous. I have read all your experiences, so I think I'm pretty clued up on what to do and what not to do - thank you all.

I just wondered if there are any language experts on the site who could tell me how to say "I have a pacemaker" in Italian please? I'd like to write it on my...

Another ER Visit!

Still wasn't feeling up to speed and started having trouble breathing again today went into the ER and just got out about an hour ago. So they figured out the problem. My pm was causing me to go into tachycardia and my body just couldn't handle it. So the dizzy feeling, and the loss of feeling in my left hand had spread into my feet. Now it is set correctly and hopefully will function well. Every doctor told me I was crazy along with my parents. They tried to tell me it was in my head and when t...

Symptom Question-Am I crazy?

Like some of you this is all new to me also. I would like to know if anyone else deals with the same issues. The past two years they thought I was having seizures because of an abnormal EEG and I could not wake up in the mornings. After a 7 day sleep deprived EEG they found that my heart rate and blood pressure drops to low and explained that the communication between my brain and my heart doesn't work at times. The EP Doctor said I need a pace maker. I failed the Echo Stress Test but the Heart...

Update!

I haven't had a chance to get on lately. I spent Fri night Sat morning in the ER with more pain. My pacemaker is doing fine my heart rate was tachy and my blood pressure decided to go high and then went down. I was severly dehydrated and my potassium level was at 3 which is low. I had the sharpest chest pain that I had expereienced since getting the pacemaker. They gave me a lot of drugs to help with all the pain. The ER doctor said that it could be atleast another month before I have complete f...

Skydiving

Have been skydiving for over 40 years, but have not jumped since my pm installation last November. The harness rides directly over my pm "bulge".& I am afraid that damage or displacement of my pm could occur as I recieve my opening shock at terminal velocity. There is extreme deceleration as I am slammed into the seat of my harness. My doctor says I'm good to go medically & psychologically, but physical abuse to my pm by my harness is up tp me to find a way around. Has anyone out there found a v...

vehicle motor interference

I just wanted to let you all know that we have found the culprit causing the sensation from my Medtronic PM. It is so simple, I should have thought of this first. It turns out that the sensation was caused by the seat belt crossing over my PM. The Medtonic PM is so much more sensitive that the ones I have before. Just the least little touch or tap causes a vibration of sorts. With the seat belt crossing over it, there was a constant interference the whole time I was driving. I am so glad t...
