Phrenic nerve help
Hi there, 23 year old pacemaker recipient for CHB caused by ablation for SVT. Pacer installed (Medtronic azure mri) late January in the his bundle position. Since the procedure, I have had irritation which at first felt like palpitations but now I think it's my phrenic nerve. This irritation, which feels like a flutter right below my heart, is only when I am in certain positions like bending over or when I yawn, laugh or do anything strenuous. It is really taking a damper on my life overall because it is sometimes heart to breathe when it flutters for 5-10 seconds. It is causing me mass anxiety and sometimes panic at times. So far I have gone in to lower the voltage down which seems to have helped slightly but did not eradicate it. The voltage was lowered from 2.5v to 2.0. I would really appreciate anyone's help and guidance on this because it seems to be such a rare occurrence, and getting it fixed soon is very high priority right now so I can get my life back. Thank you.
