They are having a hard time setting mine up without me feeling it. Is anyone else having that problem too?

I'm not sure I understand your question? How long have you had your pacer? Is it the PM adjustments you're talking about, or you are still having pain, or what? Could it be the voltage setting is too high? Do you have a PM or an ICD? Sorry to be dense, maybe someone else understands? Take care, Cathryn

They had a hard time setting my pacemaker . I kept feeling this horrible thumping sensation which drove me insane.Then they tried lowering the voltage and I still felt it. Seems that they had one of my leads too close to my stomach muscle.So they had to move one of the leads and now everthing is fine.No more thumping. Now I forget I even have a pacemaker.I hope you don't have the same problem. Some times it takes a few adjustments before they get it right. I hope you got some info. Good luck!

not you ,or me too

I too , am not sure what you mean. The settings should be done by your ep or at the hospital. What is it you need to set up?DO you mean sitting up in a certain position without feeling it? everyone has this problem ,I think anyway. It takes time getting used to it. Good luck. Hope you clarify and we can help better.

You know you're wired when...

You play MP3 files on your pacer.
