single Lead VS double lead
I have my PM (single lead VDD) 6 weeks ago because of 3rd degree heart block . I had no problem running for 1hr before it.
Since I received it I am having problem with fast walking or stairs. I talked to PM clinic last week, she turned the switch mode (or something like that) off to see if that helps, but didnt. They told me that my upper part of heart is fine, and lower part needs to be paced.
When I was in the PM clinic, she told me if I had a dual leads PM she could do a better adjustment. Do you think that dual lead PM works better than single one? she said next time she will change the volt from 5 to lower(I guess 2.5v) , do you think that may help? Does anyone can help me? It also seems that there is a delay when I start running, my heart cannot catch up especially at the beginning.

I have had my pacer since 2005. At first it ruled my life. It took some time to calm down and make the mental adjustment. I had trouble sleeping and I worried a lot about pulling wires. Now I just live my life as I wish.
