I earned my dual-chamber pacemaker January 2017. I've grown accustomed to the evening checks that I receive: 11:54pm and 12:24am.
However, 3 times today I had a similar thump sensation in my chest, during the day. I've never had that happen before. The first time it occurred sent me into a full-blown panic attack. The other two occurred a couple hours later and only a few seconds apart. No pain at any time and I didn't feel dizzy (except for when I had my panic attack).
Would you say I felt it pace? Also, last night my husband and I over-indulged on beer, sitting around the campfire with friends. Would that have anything to do with it?
I otherwise feel fine. Tired from the late night last night but otherwise okay. I've just never experienced this in the nearly 3 years I've had my pacemaker. Btw, I only have a Medtronic Surescan pacemaker, not an ICD.
Thank you in advance!
