Shortness of breath and sweating
Hello this group has answered many questions I've had after getting a pacemaker. For about 2 months now I've been going back and forth to my cardiologist because I had ablation back in October and have gone back in to afib. My cardiologist suggested to shock my heart to maybe get me out of afib. Two days later the afib was back. My cardiologist tried speeding up my PM during a visit maybe to get me out of afib. It didn't work. All I got from that was a sharp pain in-between my ribs ever other heart beat for a day and half. While in there I asked the cardiologist why I'm still sweating up a storm when walking on a treadmill and doing household chores. So my cardiologist adjusted the PM to speed up when I move but that made me feel that my heart was racing. So the next visit my cardiologist adjusted PM to slowly speed up. That had me feeling shortness of breath and caused me to go ER feeling as though my heart was about to stop. All the tests at the hospital came back saying everything is working fine. A week later my cardiologist suggested another ablation because now the futter was on the left side of my heart. I have the ablation the next day. The futter came back 5 days later. Now I'm more short of breath and have beating sensation in my throat all the time. Now my cardiologist is suggested that it my be a lung issue. The earliest I can get in to seeing a pulmonary doctor is September. Has ANYONE else gone through this. Or is it time to find another cardiologist because I'm starting to feel like I was just a test dummy all this time.
