Hi: Forget the folk who can only focus on your PM.  If you've not moved about much since your PM implant and not knowing your history and medication, your symptoms would do well for a blood clot on the lungs (pulmonary embolus).  I don't think you'd detect a PE on an echo (unless it was very large).  Your PM pocket is intended to be tight and may well 'feel tight' as the wound settles down.

You need a proper physical exam, oxygen saturation and someone to listen to your chest and take your temperature.

Don't waste time - this is urgent.

You know you're wired when...

Your pacemaker receives radio frequencies.
