Running out of patience.
I don't know where to start. Last week I had a series of scans that will continue tomorrow. I had an MRI with and without contrast. I had a Nuclear Medicine Scan. I had a PET scan. Lots of radioactive dye running through my viens. Tomorrow I will have a thoracic ecocardiagram with tang or something that will be injected. lol Anyway, in the past two weeks my pacemaker was adjusted three times. It doesn't seem to be right... I run. Each morning I set out to do an easy 7 miler. My pace is ultra slow. I don't mind being slow at 64. I stop competing and running really long distances about 17 or 18 years ago. Max is 10 miles versus 100k. Anyway, I head out and I am reduced to a walk every mile or half mile. I am so fatigue and feel as if there is a weight on/in my chest. My body acts as if it is winded but I am not really winded. I'm usually ok afterward but... is this my new normal? Does a pacemaker have to constantly be adjusted? Is it adjusted differently for runners? I hope after tomorrow's tests doctors can tell me if it's my heart that is screwed up or the pacemaker.
