A pulsating feeling that repeats every day

I've had a BIOTRONIC Evity 6 DRT for 1 year and two months exactly. These last two months I've been, as have most of us, under lockdown (age 78) These lst two months I've taken to writing a lot and since I'm at the computer in the same position all the time, I became aware of a strange, pulsating feeling every afternoon at exactly 5 pm. The kind of reaction one gets from taking a shot of straight malt in one gulp, pulse and chest accelerate briefly. No dizziness, no fainting spells and it goes away in a matter of minutes, That has been going on for a month or more. My questions are 1. Is this something to worry about? 2. Is the PM just resetting itself (as in a cell phone or computer that receives updates over the Internet?  I live in Guatemala City and it since CV 19 it has become extremely difficult to go to the institution (Unicar) where I had it installed. A call to my cardiologist is US$ that I can't spare. Any Ideas, suggestions, recommendations?  Thanks.

Check with EP or your tech

Your unit may have a test session set for that time of day.  Check with your EP and the tech that reads your unit.  They can change the test time. 

For some reason mine is set for 12:25 AM.  Usually I'm not awake.  But sometimes....

Hope everything else is going well for you.

Thanks for your explanation! This takes a load off my mind. I will definitely not have it reset for 12:25 am, glad you can sleep throught that. I am a very light sleeper and that would keep me up for the rest of the night. I'll try for the civilized waking hour of 7:00 a.m.  

Best Regards.

You know you're wired when...

You take technology to heart.

But I think it will make me feel a lot better. My stamina to walk is already better, even right after surgery. They had me walk all around the floor before they would release me. I did so without being exhausted and winded the way I had been.
