Pacemaker noise

Had pacemaker installed 9-17-2020 in the last few day my pacemaker seems to be making an electronic noise sporadically, i have ck'd there is nothing around me to make that noise, i haven't heard the noise until i got the pacemaker, called the manufacturer and they tell me the pace maker can't make a noise,, the pacemaker is Medtronic Azure XT DR MRI. SureScan , any help would be appreciated, thanks

Pacemakers as a rule don't make any noise, so if there is a noise, you probably should let your doctor know.

The problem is that if you tell your doctor something is happening that "can't" happen, you won't be believed. 

Would it be possible to record the noise using your phone? It's worth a try.

Doctors do better when they have hard objective data that backs up what we tell them.

Hi, I had similar experiences, the noise that I hear is like heart beat, my doc just laugh at me and said that I'm too cautious and he mention that as time pass by I will be more relax and the sound will disappear. It did disappeared. Hope this help you and the noise that u experienced disappeared too.

You know you're wired when...
