anxiety and pacemaker
I ama 67 year old male with a recently installed dual lead Medtronic pacemaker due to bradycarsia and passing out with a beat of 20 per minute.
It's in for a little over a week but I'm getting anxiety symptoms more than I have in the past. They are sweating palms, pounding heartbeats, flushing of the skin, twitching. I've been on xanax for a while and they help but the symptoms are increasing.I also take lopressor for the palpitations. These are all short term and not life threatening but annoying. My GP Dr wants has change me to paxil.
Does anyone have these issues?? How did you handle or resolve them?? Are they a separate issue or related to the bradycardia?? Thank you.
