I am 4 weeks post second pacemaker. My first pace maker was put in on December 28th 2020. It was a single lead. Never felt good after that. Three cardiologist later found out that I was in second degree conduction heart block which lead to them upgrading me to a two lead pacemaker. I am a 41 year old female who was healthy up until August of last year and started passing out and having irregular heart beats. My question is this new pacemaker has been in four weeks. About a week and a half ago I started having chest wall discomfort (not pain) and dull achy pain in my neck. I do have anxiety disorder and panic sometimes. I called my cardiologist they did not seem to concern, I have a follow up appointment in a week. Up until about a week and a half ago I felt like I was 20. No not so much now. My vital signs are stable pulse is normal. I take corlanor 5mg twice daily amd clonazepam twice daily. Any thought? Am I still healing? Is something going on? Or is my anxiety taking over again?
You know you're wired when...
You can finally prove that you have a heart.
Your anxiety is normal. It takes some of us a little time to adjust to the new friend. As much as they love you, family and friends without a device just cannot understand the adjustment we go through. That is why this site is so valuable.
