so is it normal to feel like this
So I gotta admit since I got the pacemaker in early June I've -- and i'm sure this is no surprise -- been super paranoid about cardiac things in general. That said, I did the 3-month checkup, everything was fine and all I needed was a cupla software tweaks.
So all had been fine -- been out bicycling and carrying on as normal.
But this week has sucked -- I made the mistake of watching the debate tuesday evening and had to quit because my chest was thumping, i was sweating, it felt like a full-blown panic attack. Either that or a heart attack, but I didn't die, didn't have any knumbness or pains or anything and failed to die.
But the rest of the week I've been on edge and super-aware of how my heart is working (beating normally). Anyone else just freaking in general or should I go get a checkup to make sure nothing else is going on with my heart?
Oh, I'm 71, weigh 162, generally healthy, asthma, am do have irritable bowel at times, like now, so take a lot of immodium. No fever, no covid. Pacemaker was because of low heart rate caused by level 2 block. No other issues found at that time. EKG was normal.
