Mom's New PM
So glad I found the "club" and have seen some great info here. My Mom is 85 and has always had a heart rate in the 40's without issues. She started having some AFIB so when her heart rate would go up to around 100, she would feel it and get shortness of breath. she was also having some pauses with the AFIB and her heart rate would dip into the 30's and she would feel lightheaded. She was in and out of the hospital many times before they finally decided to put in a PM about a month ago. If was set at 60. Since then she is feeling "breathless," that's how she describes it, but only with any activity. As long as she's sitting she feels fine. I'm wondering if this PM set at 60 is to fast for her since she's been in the 40's all her life. The doctors are not concerned and we are very frustrated since our mother can't do as much activity as before?
