Post pregnancy with pacing increased
I am currently 5 days post birth of my daughter and am having some issues with my heart rate staying up. I had my pacemaker put in last year on halloween. I have cardio inhibited vasovegal syncope with frequent spells. After implant of pace maker I have has no episodes and it was pacing 22% of the time. I got pregnant in January and the pacing continued to go down from there with no complications in my heart or pregnancy. Two weeks prior to birth it was pacing 4% of the time. During labor everything was alright and no problems.
I felt great and was released from the hospital a day earlier then expected and again everything was fine. But over the next few days I started losing my energy, head started to hurt more, light headed and dizzy episodes plus pacemaker was kicking on a lot more. I called device services and was notified that over the past 4 days it is now pacing 47 % of the time l. My question is this; has anyone else experienced giving birth and recovering with a pacemaker? If so was there something you did to help while your levels were returning to normal that helped energy levels and your heart rate stay up? Was there tests you would recommend getting that could point to the cause of the low heart rate after everything was fine throughout the pregnancy?
