Bulging neck vein / jugular vein distention?
Hi all. I have a Medtronic Dual chamber pm for about 3yrs now for Sick sinus syndrome/Bradycardia along with arrythmia. If i bend forward it is asif my chest is squeezed closed and my head feels tight, face goes blood red and my neck veins bulge? Why does this happen, even if i just lean forward for few seconds and also when i lay down my neck veins are very prominent and chest feels heavy too? Sounds weird but it is rather bother to me as I feel like i am being squeezed tight. Hope someone understands. Look forward to a reply. Thanks.

I'm 35 and got my pacemaker a little over a year ago. It definitely is not a burden to me. In fact, I have more energy (which my husband enjoys), can do more things with my kids and have weight because of having the energy.
