85+ Heart Rate for 2 Days
I was hoping to get some of your opinions on what could be going on. I am 20 years old and have had a pacemaker since i was 7 months so I am not new to this or anything, but recently I think my pacemaker has been acting up. My current pacemaker is a ST. Jude and i had it put in Nov. 2017. For the last 2 days my heart rate has been rouly 85-90. Normally my pacemaker keeps me in thw 70s and all the down to 55 at night. This almost 90bpm heart rate has been keeping me up, and waking me up for the last two nights.
I know that i am under a lot of stress right now, so I was wondering if that could be the cause of it? This is also my 1st St. Jude pacemaker so I am not sure what all of its signs are.(my medtronic gave me tunnel vision and a buzzing in my ears when it was low on battery) i was hoping one of you might know how serious this is and if i should go find a cardiologist.(my college shut down so i am living on the other side of the usa from my cardiologist) I don't want to freak out, and don't want to go to a cardiologist 1)because my insurance won't cover it and 2) because if this is minor i don't want to put myself at risk of COVID.
I woukd appreciate any and all advice, I am just trying not to freak out.
