First Pacemaker Interrogation
Just had my first pacemaker interrogation last week and have had problems with chest pain since.
The Guidant Rep asked how I felt. I said I did not have the energy I had before the PM. The Guidant Rep decided to turn on the rate response accelerometer to increase my heartrate upon physical exertion. I was told there are three settings, and I am set in the middle (not sure what the differences are) .
Since the accelerometer was turned on I have had chest pain riding my lawn tractor (PM thought I was walking I guess) , and walking short distances. Prior to having the accelerometer turned on my PM was set at 60 BPM and I had no chest pain whatsoever.....
I want to have the accelerometer turned off. any thoughts?
