Havent seen a cardiologist in 15 years
I had a syncopy issue which caused me to pass out on rare occasions when my vegas nerve was overstimulated. Since I had great insurance I said yes to having a PM installed. That was 2004 and almost as soon as I went back to work I got laid off. I went back to the cardiologist so many times to have them turn it down - it would activate and drive me bonkers just getting up to get a drink. Finally they told me it was at its lowest setting.
I moved across the country and got on with life. I became accustomed to it and then never bothered finding a new cardiologist. I cant believe its been so long but i've never since had any passing out issues - maybe the PM is doing its job or maybe I grew out of the problem - I'm 58 now and wondering if the battery could start to leak at some point and cause serious problems. Any ideas?
I know - GO FIND A CARDIOLOGIST!! And I will, but now Im just looking for info.
