My heart speeds up for no reason!
Hello and Good health to All!
I am 40 years old female. Two months ago I had a presyncope episode and was diagnosed with high degree AV block. So I had pacemaker implanted immediately.
I was feeling quit ok until my 6 weeks check up. After that I started feeling strange palpitations. While resting, my heart speeds up from 60-70 beats to 100 beats per minute and stays there for about 2 minutes everytime. My heart skips beats during that time and it feels very uncomfortable. I have many of these episodes during one day but they get much worse at night especially when lying down. I wear a smartwatch and I can see that these episodes are recorded during sleep also. At first I thought it was the self test pacemakers do but these should happen only once per day.
Has anyone else heard of this or experienced it?Anyone got any thoughts?
