Lately I have been feeling weak. I was really hoping that getting the pacemaker placed in would makes things get better but it doesn't seem that things work that way it sure does take a process. I called in last week b/c my left hand was completely numb and I had so much chest discomfort and was also dizzy. They got me in and said my b/p was low and I was dehydrated. They said that the hand was going numb because of my voltage being high and that they wouldn't lower in until 6 weeks. It is set at 5 and the lowest they will be able to take it is a little under 4. They also told me that for everyday I feel good give yourself two days to rest. Well so far that has been kinda true.
I called again today because my b/p is low for me sitting at 103/60 and I still keep getting dizzy and i'm drinking plenty of water. They can't get me in until next week so I have to sit for another week with every other day being dizzy and light headed. So I guess my question is did people get this feeling ever and what can I do to help myself regain some more energy? Thanks! Enjoy your week.

At age 20, I will be getting a pacemaker in few weeks along with an SA node ablation. This opportunity may change a five year prognosis into a normal life span! I look forward to being a little old lady with a wicked cane!
