Within days of my implant, my ICD gave me about 8-10 inappropriate shocks. It took the EMS to get them stopped. I initially had no idea what to expect. IT sounded like an a hot electrical wire touching another hot electrical wire. I was washing eggs in the sink and I thought that maybe a small appliance fell in the water. Things were happening so fast that I could not reason what was going on. For me, It was painful. I have no idea if that is what an appropriate ICD shock is all about. I tried to find out what they were supposed to feel like but no luck. Any feedback?
Does anyknow if shocks affect the heart, either appropriate or inappropriate?
