ICD firing

 Mine revived me from a cardiac arrest about 5 weeks ago with 4 shocks, 3 from VFib.  I've had mine just over 3 years and has paced me out of many ventricular arrhythmias.  

 

More info would be helpful RF

like why you had ICD implanted?  Hopefully you have consulted a doctor for advice and had a thorough check of your device ?  Were you aware of experiencing any symptoms at all, like breathlessness, chest pain, dizziness, weakness, palpitations beforehand to indicate that all was not well  ?  

Islandgirl thank goodness your ICD fired appropriately.  Have you ever experienced a misfiring of your device for no apparent reason ?

You know you're wired when...

Your heart beats like a teenager in love.

I'm 35 and got my pacemaker a little over a year ago. It definitely is not a burden to me. In fact, I have more energy (which my husband enjoys), can do more things with my kids and have weight because of having the energy.
