Shortness of breath

I am 10 days post PM implant.  I've experienced severe shortness of breath since implant, especially when reclining, and I  am gasping and wheezing. 

Any advice from those who have had similar experiences?

Have you consulted with your cardiologist or nurse.  If not, do it now.  This could be serious and it's certainly something they need to know about.  The "while reclining" part is particularly worrisome, at least to this non-physician.

Agree, you should go in ASAP to check settings. Some amount of flutter or getting used to the PM is normal, but you shouldn't feel short of breath. Your resting rate might be too low?

So, my advice is to go about your daily routine and forget that you have a pacemaker implanted in your body.
