BioTronik Edora 8 DR-T
Hello, I got my pacemaker BioTronik Edora DR-T installed about 4 days ago 10/17. I think they may have some settings messed up. I have heart block 37yo Male healthy and active.
Anyway before my resting BPM were 40 - 50 but now post procedure my resting heart rate sits at 80 - 90bpm. I called the doctor's office and they said the threshold is set to 60bpm.
Also BioTronik uses something called CLS to try and mimic your natural responses to increase heart rates. The issue is it seems to be triggering an increased heart rate for anything. For example when I brush my teeth I can feel my heart pounding and it get gets up to 140bpm (upper threshold) for really no reason at times which freaks me out. I told my cardiologist I would call back on Monday 10/21 but they seem reluctant to make any changes at this time and want it to settle in. I do not have an appointment for about 10 more days for my follow up but my settings especially for my lower threshold have to be wrong.
If anyone has any advice or knowledge about my issues that would be great. Thanks

I have had my pacer since 2005. At first it ruled my life. It took some time to calm down and make the mental adjustment. I had trouble sleeping and I worried a lot about pulling wires. Now I just live my life as I wish.
