I am new to the forum & am looking for some advice about my situation.
A little bit about me, I am 38 years old, was diagnosed with AV block 2:1 (Morbitz) & had dual chamber PM fitted last July.
Had chronic anxiety for weeks after the procedure which thankfully has now disappeared.
This was followed by weeks & months of adjustment to living with the PM. Just before my 3 month post procedure check up, became quite dizzy & lightheaded. Presented to my Health Care Provider at the time, test such as ECG etc where preformed & adjustments where made to the PM.
The dizziness got better, however it does come & go every now and then along with some headaches. However, I have been less bothered by it as my capacity to preform exercise has been greatly increased since the PM, which has filled me with joy & kind of makes me overlook the occasional downsides.
However over the last week or so, I have been having pulsing head aches eminenting from the base of neck particular when I get up quickly or sometimes when lying down to go to sleep, they seemed to of eased off with time & massages.
Until last night when I was recieving a neck massage from my lovely wife, I proceeded to get up quite quickly and had a massive sudden on set pulsing head ache coupled with a sensation of nearly fainting ( possibly a presyncopal episode ?)
Needless to say it was far from a pleasent experience, I had a pretty rough night sleeping but did managed to get up in the morning a do my normal weights & yoga routine followed by 10 km walk / with 350 m altitude gain with no issues.
However I still feel a bit cagey & headachy certainly not as good as I have been feeling.
Sorry for the length of the post just wanted to give some context.
Any insights would be very much appreciated

At age 20, I will be getting a pacemaker in few weeks along with an SA node ablation. This opportunity may change a five year prognosis into a normal life span! I look forward to being a little old lady with a wicked cane!
