New to PM
My PM insertion was May 15th and I’ve been somewhat stressed because of lack of knowledge on how I’m suppose to feel. My PM was suppose to be placed on the left side but at the time of insertion the Dr asked me if I’d had any problems on that side because it was obstructed or he wasn’t able to go that way. So I have a right side PM and I am a predominately right side sleeper and I felt like I was laying right on my PM so I would sort of compensate and adjust a little. Now, I’m not sure this caused it but my bite is off and I have TMJ or simply jaw misalignment. My diagnosis was complete heart block and I have a St Jude PM with dual leads. They have me set on 60 bpm to keep my heart rate up on the bottom end. But I haven’t heard if I have a top number (told you I was new to this) do I have a top rate or do some just operate with the low rate with my slow bpm diagnosis. I started back playing golf and was able to play 18 holes on a coolish day with no problems. But I skipped a day and played again and had to quit on 12th hole...fatigue and dizziness when i would stand up from teeing up. It was a little more humid but I felt I had stayed hydrated. Any tips or info would be appreciated as I am about as clueless as one can get.
