had this problem. I was being "shocked " awakened every night. I went to the ep and asked what was up. He did some checking. It seems as though my body was not happy with the "test" mode that was in the on position and checked itself every night at 1 a.m. It was causing my heart to re-act in a way that felt like a shock. He simply turned that feature off . Ask if this could be the problem. Mine was easily noticed because I looked at the time I was 'Shocked" and the the ep looked on my read out for my pm and the conclusion was easy. I worked and I am happy to say I get a full nights sleep and I am glad ,I asked the question on here because I beleive it was smitty who told me what to do. Anyway I hope you get it figured out. Good luck.
your "strange" friend,

don't get mad, get glad :)

Hi there,
You rhyme! Very cool. Here, I'll rhyme some more:
If you can't go to sleep, and its hard to cope.
Don't give up, there's always hope.
You might need an adjustment; a little tweak here and there.
If you have more questions, go ahead and ask, b/c we care.

Well, anyway, I think you should call your doctor and let him/her know that you dont like how you're feeling and they should be able to adjust things for you. Good luck with all of that.
take care,
~valerie :)

Along with Susan and Valerie I agree that I would call your doctor and see if they can do some adjusting. I have some of the same problems and understand how hard it is when you can't sleep. Hopefully a little adjusting will be able to fix the problem. Will be keeping you in my thoughts and prayers take care of yourself.

About a year ago I pulled out one of my leads a bit.
The Doctor turned the power up. I keep growing and it seems like its pulling on the wires and thats why im getting shocked or what ever the feeling is. I think they need to place my pacemaker into a new spot. Its in my Stomach at the moment. I know that must be a big part of it because I have problems doing sit ups because it pulls on my wires. So if anyone eles had a problem that sounds like that please speak up :) I just need to know that im not the only one ^^

Shocks or Jolts?

I'm new to this site, and a pm. I rec'd my pm on 8-14-07. I thought everything was going well until about five days ago. I started to have shocks or jolts under my right breast, front and back, it has my clothes jumping and moving. My pm is on my left side. I never had this until now. Has anyone else ever else been bothered with this? Thanks for any replys.
