Why does my doctor's office make it such a pain in the rump to make simple setting changes? I tell them I'm uncomfortable or feeling a little off pacer wise, but the exchange ends up like brain surgery. In my case, it was the response factor setting being too high and my heart working too hard for the level of activity. Doc says "well the numbers don't support the move" but then reluctantly allows it. Jeez man I'm the one wearing this thing and I can tell when it's over sensing or pacing me too fast. Numbers don't support it because I had to modify my behavior to compensate for it. They are busy analyzing data and ignoring the patient. Such a hassle for what ended up being ONE adjustment. There has to be an easier way for these small tweaks to the settings.
Sorry for the rant.

I'm 35 and got my pacemaker a little over a year ago. It definitely is not a burden to me. In fact, I have more energy (which my husband enjoys), can do more things with my kids and have weight because of having the energy.
