I had an interrogation today. I am always very nervous for these yearly appointments due to the way I feel during it. During this particular one, the tech ran my heart rate up. I felt anxious, nervous, palms sweaty. He said, "I'm having trouble getting your heart rate to go back down." Later he told me it was in the 140 range. This lasted about 2 minutes. According to my husband who was present. I was thinking maybe he would call someone who else who might help him. He did not. It finally did come back down. He told me I missed a several beats. I thought I was going to die. I tried to be as calm as possible. Not wanting to compound the problem or make him more nervous. I thought his hands were shaking. I know I was shaking. Anyone else had this problem? What are your thoughts. I had pacemaker implanted 3 years ago due to complete heart block.
You know you're wired when...
Your pacemaker interferes with your electronic scale.
I had a pacemaker when I was 11. I never once thought I wasn't a 'normal kid' nor was I ever treated differently because of it. I could do everything all my friends were doing; I just happened to have a battery attached to my heart to help it work.
