I've had a Medtronic two lead PM since January 2 2020. I had my first and only adjustment on February 13th. Pacing was set for 55 to 60bpm, from the implant setting of 80bpm. I was told that this was done so I would not become pacemaker dependent, as I am still young (72) 😊 About 10 days after the adjustment I started having a feeling that I can only describe as the same or slightly lighter version of the techs "puck" being placed over my PM when he is making the adjustments. I'm so new to all this that I don't yet have the language to describe this any better. These "sensations" occur as I am driving or walking around my community. At first I thought it might be buried high voltage electrical lines but that started to not always make sense. Then I noticed that the sensations would happen when I was close to, or in the radius of buildings that had large microwave arrays on top or near telecommunication towers. So I have questions; is this a possible source of interference, if so can any adjustments be made to the PM? I thank in advance anyone who can provide some advice in this regard. My PM tech clinic is located in the local hospital, and in this CV19 time I thought I may at least get some language for what might be happening and then contact him by phone or electronically.
You know you're wired when...
You have a maintenance schedule just like your car.
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.
