7 week check

Just reading Joanne's checkup and settlings issues. I have been for 7 week pm check with the technicians and was quite taken back that my pacemaker wasn't kicking in as it should however, they've changed a lot of things but wouldn't say I feel great tonight. Have anxious feeling back and just weird feelings. I was told it can take a while for a settings change to settle so good to hear others are having similar issues. Have been dizzy some days nauseous others, just want to wake up feeling normal again. Hope your aches and pains go away.

Anxiety is normal

Consensus seems to be that it takes a few months to settle in to a pacemaker and for the heart to get used to being paced. 

Anxiety alone can create all sorts of symptoms. I'd suggest reading some of the posts on coping and other topics. 

It is a learning process for most of us!

But if you feel odd or at all symptomatic, do get checked out.

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.
