Question for ALL my TECH SAVY Pacers!
This is a question for anyone who really understands their PM. Now the last time (2 weeks ago) I went in for a PM adjustment they changed the CLS and Accelerometer set to OFF. I have the low end at 60 during the day and 50 from 12-6am while I sleep. Now guess what? Somehow I feel MUCH BETTER! I still notice my symptoms but now I only notice them when the PM is in use. For example when resting and my heart rate drops to 60 I feel a fullness in my chest. Or I feel tingling in my body. When I am laying down to sleep (still awake) and laying on my sides it feels like someone is swinging a sledge hammer inside my chest. I have to lay on my back or else I feel like something bad will happen. I know the PM is working because I check and my HR is at 60 and I just can sense it in my body, I just know! It's still SO HARD TO ACCURATELY explain.
But now this leaves me with WHY is this happening? Could it be that the PM is causing me these horrible symptoms? I know this may sound silly but could the PM timing be off? Meaning when it pulses its not matching my own beat? Which in turn will cause me these symptoms. It is the only thing that makes sense at this point. I feel like if the heart beat is a 1, 2, 1, 2 when the PM kicks in it becomes a 1, 2, 1, 1, 2, 1, 2. The less I use it the better I feel but when it is in use I still feel bad. This also may be why I wake up with a fullness in my chest and just feel around crummy. I have been asleep all night and its been working while I sleep. I don't notice it because I have sleep apnea and am a deep sleeper but I stil might be struggling even when I'm sleeping. I hope I make sense. What are your thoughts on this because I stated earlier that I feel better when using my own heart beat, but now worse when PM is actually doing it job. How can this be? I know I am not making this up and I know I am on to something. Hoping for some insight from anyone here. Thank you all in advance!
