Is it my Heart or my Watch.
I had a checkup of CRT-P with EP two weeks ago. My Echo in May was great and all seemed promising, but I was not feeling as great as I was earlier. I had complained to GP a few times on phone (no face to face since January) that I was getting SOB and tired again. So two weeks ago I finally got to see EP for a once cancelled scheduled visit. Find out that my left ventricle lead is not doing anything, had moved. After a lot of testing they found the best positioned vector left and turned up the voltage to get me back on track. That is all good I guess - I do wonder what if it moves again, I already lost one vector the day after implant. Does that mean I only have 2 left?
Anyway, that is not my concern today. I have a Samsung watch that I don't trust 100% but over last couple of years it has been pretty consistent showing change in heart rate when I am feeling changes. I am set at 60 bpm for resting rate and watch has always shown 60, once in a while a 58 or 59. In the last two weeks, since interrogation, my watch is showing lower numbers regularly. I haven't felt it but at end of day, the lows for day have shown in low 50's, high 40's, one day 42. Today it is saying my average resting rate (I put watch on 5 hours ago) is 55. The highs have been consistent with activities.
I am waiting for results from Holter from last week, see if it says anything.
If this is actually happening, what do you suppose could cause it. If they had forgot to put me back to 60 after testing I think my numbers would be a lot lower.
