a quick question before I go to my doctor about this. But when I was in hospital one of the reasons why I needed a pacemaker is because I was bradycardic. However recently I've been tracking my sleep via my Fitbit and my heart is still dropping to 41-42 bpm. (Before the pasemaker it was dropping to 36-38 bpm) My resting heart rate is 52-56 bpm naturally too. I thought the pacemaker would speed this up, obviously I need to have a check up and see how my heart is doing (last one the said was absolutely fine about 6 months ago and told me to go back in 2 years. But shouldn't the pacemaker stop me from going into bradycardia? Or is it the case that I'm bradycardic and that is it? Basically, should I be worried?
apart from my heart rate dropping during sleep (which I don't notice), I have no other symptoms and my pacemaker is working perfectly. I am just worried because I don't sleep well, don't feel very rested and I feel like it's linked to this.
