Defibulator going off during deep sleep.... no pain.

Hello, anyone else have their defibulator go off during sleep and not feel it ?
 I am about 8 months into my pacemaker-defibulator and twice now it has gone off at night for rapid heart beat and I didn't know.  My monitor picked it up and I was called the next day by the cardiology people.  I have yet to feel the impact of the defibulator and I am nervous about it as my hospital experience was mega painful!!!

Glad I have found this forum.... hugs to alll, jeri

I assume you were being 'paced out' of arrhythmias.  I had been paced out of those arrhythmias many times, and I assume your EP will adjust meds or made some adjustments on your ICD.  Call your EP and ask questions.

I've seen many posts about people being concerned about exercise after having a device so thought I would let you know that yesterday I raced my first marathon since having my pacemaker fitted in fall 2004.
