I had a PM implant oct 21. After 4 weeks I began exercising on my Manuel treadman w incline. I was doing ok until I decided to push its! All of a sudden I felt a pressure in my chest and a feeling in my throat like I wasn't getting enough air. I sat for a few minutes and I recovered! Went to get a device check and told RN about the event and she said she would make some adjustments. Not sure what was adjusted but she said now my heart would have to work harder as the pacemaker is what I had been feeling. Since then I feel bad and get those feelings more now than before! Anyone else have similar problems? I would love to hear from you.
You know you're wired when...
Youre officially battery-operated.
The pacer systems are really very reliable. The main problem is the incompetent programming of them. If yours is working well for you, get on with life and enjoy it. You probably are more at risk of problems with a valve job than the pacer.
