New pacemaker “kicks in”
I had a PM inserted two weeks ago today. I was told there would be a period of adjustment as my body became accustomed to it. I don't feel I received as much information as I needed and was happy to find this site to answer some of my questions as I was experiencing things. By way of information I have a dual chamber Biotronic PM to address Bradychardia as a result of second grade AV heart block. Besides minor intermittent twinges and the flutter of the PM working when my HR goes too low. I have noticed a consistent occurrence of the PM "kicking in" and that flutter for approximately 5-10 seconds, at around the same time of day. It doesn't matter what I am doing; sitting, walking or moving around. I only started noticing this as a daily occurrence when my GP suggested I note time and date of any of the events in preparation for my first "interrogation" of PM functioning with my Cardiolgist. Is this something that others have experienced? Thank you in advance for any responses.
